Eight of Cups, Maat Tarot


Theme: "personification of truth, justice, and the cosmic order"

Card: Eight of Cups
"...a cloaked human figure carrying a walking stick accompanied by a raven. Together they are embarking on a journey."
"...time to move on."


"The cups are arranged in such a way that it looks like one is missing, a sign that emotional fulfilment and wholeness is lacking."
"A nearby river symbolises his emotions, and the mountains represent the awareness that this will not be an easy journey (though it will be necessary for true long-term happiness)"

"When the Eight of Cups shows up in a Tarot reading, you may feel compelled to walk away from a disappointing situation."
"The Eight of Cups suggests you sense that something is missing, particularly on an emotional or spiritual level, and instead of waiting around for things to get better, you know you need to leave that unfulfilling situation. It may not make sense to others because on the face, it looks as if you have everything you had wished for - but, deep down, you know it's not serving your Highest Good, and it's time for you to let it go and move on."
Except that deep down I feel it IS serving my highest good, DESPITE things "not being the way I want". I do feel compelled to walk away. But "...move on" is a better wording - because you can move on without walking away. 
Taking things to a new level is also "moving on", if it "works".
"You may repress your emotions or refuse to have open conversations with others about what's happening, instead preferring to pretend as if everything is okay, or avoiding the scene altogether." If that's the case, then "airing" it some way wold be moving on, wouldn't it? If it's done in the right way, at the right time?
"The reversed Eight of Cups raises the question, "Do I stay or do I go?" You may be caught between walking away from a disappointing situation or trying one last time to make things better. But the real question is, 'Can the circumstances improve, or is it a lost cause?' Check in with your intuition to understand whether you should give this situation one more chance, or if you should release and let go."

"If the reversed Eight of Cups is paired with more passive cards such as the Hanged Man or the Four of Swords, then it may be a sign that you wish to try one more time. However, if this card couples with a more active card such as the Eight of Wands or Chariot, it may be time to move on and pursue a different path."

Lets try, shall we?
Another card.
Deck: Hermetic Tarot.
Theme: "Abstract, complex - beyond comprehension (for the time being)"

So, there are probably no right or wrong answers available!
I wont even bother to draw a card. It's too complex/veiled now.

What to do then?

"The reversed Eight of Cups invites you to listen to your heart about your next course of action. Others may have an opinion, but it comes down to what's important to you. Only you know whether this situation is serving you and if there is hope for the future. Be mindful of what you want and then check in to see if this move is in alignment with your goals and dreams."

Just as I figured :)
