The Eight of Cups ~ It's Always Darkest Before the Dawn!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Eight of Cups, representing: Emotional stagnation, darkness, hardship and release. The Eight of Cups reminds us that it is often “darkest before the dawn”, emphasizing that things often seem at the worst, just before they get better. This card is often experienced as a “Dark Night of the Soul”, indicating a weariness, a feeling of emotional and spiritual exhaustion. Life itself has become a burden, and the result is stagnation, even hopelessness.
The remedy comes from letting go of the past. This card warns of getting caught up in bitterness or disappointments about “what should have been”. This is a time to let go of unfulfilling relationships that drain you, as you are no longer willing to participate in soul-sucking situations. Embrace the wisdom of your past experiences, set new boundaries and move forward. See the rainbow behind the dark clouds, and once you do, you will feel renewed and your life will be filled with hopefulness again!
Wishing you a week of sweet release!
