Today’s Community Tarot Card is the 8 of Cups. We take stock of our lives and consider what is working for us, and what is no longer working for us. Don’t let past effort and energy tie you to a project or circumstance that is no longer right for you. Things are now in decline and further success unlikely. It’s time for a start-over and new horizons.
About the image: The 8 of Cups from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot. A figure emerges from the ocean, gazing up at the moon against a dark blue starry night sky. The figure has the top half of a person and the bottom half of an octopus. They raise one arm up, hand facing palm forward toward the moon. The other arm reaches down and slightly back, palm facing the viewer. The astrological symbol for Pisces is superimposed over the moon. A stemmed glass of a different style is held in each tentacle.
Each Tarot card offers us a Gift, Invitation and Challenge. Before you read on, decide if you want to know which one the 8 of Cups has for you today. Please let us know in the comments what your choice was and how the answer applies to you.
The Gift of the 8 of Cups is to embrace stillness. Take a step back from your occupations and allow clarity regarding your next steps to arise.
The Invitation of the 8 of Cups is to give yourself the space for fresh perspectives and ideas to arise through changing your habits and routines.
The Challenge of the 8 of Cups is the discernment to know if it is time for a new direction or whether there is still value in persevering despite monotony and over-familiarity.
(Hint: the Gift is the grace that is already given us to overcome the Challenge, so if you chose the Challenge, also see the Gift.)
