Eight of Cups

A person in a red cloak holds a staff as he walks down a dark path.  It’s night and both a quarter and full moon hang in the sky above him.  Eight cups are stacked in the foreground.

A dark and confusing situation.  Fleeing from troubles. Stealing away in the night.  This isn’t a really pleasant card. It shows confusion, illusions, pain, false and misleading impressions.  The full and quarter moons, however, indicate that the situation will change, probably over the course of the 28 days.

Reversed:  The bad situation is ending.  Things will literally and figuratively lighten up and the path forward will be more clear.

EXAMPLES:  Leaving town because of a really, really bad relationship.

Checking into a shelter for abused women while you wait for the divorce to become final.
