Weekly Tarot Card – Eight of Cups

Are you feeling disappointed? Let down by a relationship, job, career, life in general? Is there a feeling of malaise due to expectations not being met? Enter the Eight of Cups. The arrangement of golden cups in the foreground with one missing indicates that with all this abundance something is lacking. It is nighttime. A golden moon shines down on a man forsaking his worldly life to journey into the wilderness. He is searching for something more…what will it be? Is this a spiritual journey where he discovers that his happiness comes from within and is not dependent on the fixtures of the external world? Will he return with the knowledge that he is the missing cup? And are we to learn once and for all to do away with expectations as they do not speak to our existence in the now which is where true happiness abides.
