The Eight of Cups brings the energy of moving away from a part of your life that no longer serves you. Leaving past achievements behind and moving on to the next thing that calls you.
Sometimes the Tarot brings new perspective or insight, sometimes it gives us a glimpse of a possible future, sometimes it reflects back our experience validating what we see or feel.
For me having the cards mirror back to me my current feelings or situation really helps me to examine them and understand them from another angle. Sometimes this mirroring experience serves to make me feel even clearer about the path I’m on or choices I make.
