Eight Of Cups
There are murky if not unhealthy emotions in your life and you need to do what is best for you. Often, especially because this is a cups card, it is exceptionally difficult to go through this card because at one time the pools that were around you were wondrous, creative, and positive energies that have now died down. Know that renewed good times lie ahead for you. If your “gut” is telling you that you really need to get out of a relationship, job, or living arrangement, trust yourself. Instead of this coming out of the blue, or someone or something leaving you, it usually means that you are the one who will make this choice. Very often one door has to close behind you before the next door in front of you can fully open. .You may desire a change on your current status, for example, change of your working condition or even change of your job. For love, you may be tired and want to give up as your relationship seems to have no future. Or if you have a lover, you may be disappointed and have to stay away from each other for a while. However, you should consider things carefully as once you make a decision you cannot return to correct it.
It’s important to keep reminding yourself that good times lie ahead for you. If your “gut” is telling you that you really need to get out of a relationship, job, or living arrangement, trust yourself..but think long and hard, first. Look before you leap and weigh all the pros and cons, if at all possible. This reversed is almost a positive card. It does still represent loss, but the loss that is felt is not as deep. While you may find that you are walking away from something in your life, the darkness is not present and the view is bright. It is likely a move for the better on your path and one that you can feel good about. Even if you are feeling sad about moving on, know that the progression you are making now is for the best.
You will feel like you are drowning in the dark, unable to see the light anymore. You may face with some problems that destroy your life energy and you are unable to make the situation better alone by yourself. But it is difficult to ask for help from people around you at this time. Or even people around you may cause problems to you. For work, if you have to cooperate with others, you should be more patient as you may not get a proper support. The more accepting you can be of change of any description during this time the better. Simply put the less you try to control what is underway the more comfortable this time will be for you.
Often what you need to let go of is some sort of self-limiting belief or attitude. Sometimes we just can’t see how our attitudes are hurting us, and when that is true this time period can be a wake-up call.
The energy of this time is not just change or destruction; it is change or destruction followed by renewal. Even though one door may have closed for you another is opening. The change is coming whether you want it or not so pluck up your courage and step through the door. This change is needed.
For Work:If you hate your job, or are underemployed, but you’ve not wanted to leave because of the steady income, you could end up being forced out either through redundancy or being fired. It’s not set in stone but losing your job is a very real possibility.
Ultimately, this would lead to your greater good, but do you really want to be fired or made redundant? Wouldn’t you rather leave of your own free will and on your own terms? Now wopuld be a very good time to start working on “plan B.” In a career reading Death tarot card means careers in the police or military. Death also shows up when the Seeker is about to change their careers.
Those of you who don’t necessarily hate your job and are fully occupied may still end up losing your job anyway. Death is a card of change and that change is coming one way or another. “Plan B” should be on your to-do list too. You may even want to consider making a complete change. Perhaps even a complete change of field.
For Love:If you are clinging to a relationship that you are deeply unhappy in because you don’t want to let go of the familiar, or because you hate to be alone, you are doing neither yourself or your partner any favors. Have a frank and honest discussion about the problem(s) you have with the relationship, and if they can’t or won’t make a change or you can’t or won’t, then perhaps it’s time to let it go. When the Death card arrives in a reading about love and relationships you can expect several things to occur depending on your situation. If you are single and looking for love, Death gives you the message that it is time for you to slough off the old parts of you that do not serve so that you can attract someone brand new by being sparkly, fresh and exciting. Death tells you that the pursuit of love now through transformation of self is an exceptionally productive step forward and you should take that advice.
Not all relationships are fixable but you should still try first. Change is not easy for most people and for some it is really difficult. If you have tried to fix what’s wrong and not been successful then moving on is almost certainly your best choice. Remember, if you are this unhappy now, how unhappy do you think you’ll be in five years? Or ten? Change is scary but staying at any cost should be scarier.
If you can be brave and take the chance of leaving the security of this relationship, you can find one that works much better. Happiness is out there waiting but you have to go and find it.
For Finances: You may have to make some sacrifices to deal with coming financial challenges. That’s not something anyone truly wants to do of course, but it will be necessary so don’t ignore any looming problems. Don’t hesitate to reach out for help if you need it. You don’t have to struggle or suffer alone, nor should it come to that, although there is a possibility that you’ll be dealing with an involuntary loss of income as your job may be cut back, your stocks may lose money etc.
Don’t hide your head in the sand if this comes about. Figure out exactly what you are dealing with, face the situation, then do what you must to get through it. Ultimately you will profit greatly from what you have learned. It may not seem like it at the time but you will be fine in the long run.
For Health: Keeping your stress level manageable is a must in order to stay in good health now. Deal with any problems that come up physically, don’t try to avoid them. Be sure to get enough rest, as best you can, and don’t abuse your body with alcohol or in other ways.
If you need healing, ask for it on both the literal and the spiritual planes. Comfort and hugs from close friends and/or family will go a long way toward keeping you healthy and sane.
For Spirituality: This would be a very good time to cultivate a positive attitude. As Mary Engelbreit once said… “If you don’t like something, change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.”
Even though this could be an upsetting time for you, always rememberthat this too shall pass. Don’t fight change. Allow yourself to feel what you feel, but don’t wallow in pain or sorrow because that won’t change anything.
If you need help pulling yourself away from any pain or loss that you are suffering, reach out. There is always a caring soul who will help you, even if you are quite literally alone in the world; more people care about you than you may think.
In reversed position when one is depending too much on old habits and routines that are not encouraging a level of physical emotional or spiritual growth. here it says that something that should have come to a blessed end for some reason persists. ‘Not death’ is not a desired thing as it is not living either. For some reason, the person is holding on. Blocked grief is often a factor. The seeker might be unable to face the pain of loss. They remain in the tunnel, and rebirth is prevented from happening. At worse, this card indicates mockery of someone’s death. There might be a lack of care, support, and sympathy for those left grieving. Sometimes this card shows up reversed when the seeker has cheated death.
Part of the reason that change is so necessary is that new environments encourage new stimulate which provides creates in us the ability to flourish in a vibrant and lush atmosphere. We must join the rock tumbler so that we may become more smooth and shiny. Create a new space for opportunities to connect with you in your life.
