Understanding the Eight of Cups in Love Tarot Readings
In love tarot readings, the Eight of Cups refers to the need to let go or walk away. If you have been struggling in your relationship, this may be the time to simply allow it to dissolve. Usually this is much easier said than done. The Eight of Cups tarot card often calls for the need to become conscious of the decisions you choose to make. If your relationship has reached a point were further growth seems implausible, you may need to consciously end it. By walking away, you open new doors for future possibilities. Choosing to move on can be painful, but necessary. By redirecting your attentions towards the future, you can encourage new opportunities to come your way.
It’s also important to really take the time to take stock of your relationship. Does it have the potential to meet your needs? Is your partner the type of person whom you can see yourself with in years to come? If not, this would be the time to make a clean break. If there is any emotional abuse going on, get out now. If you continue to stay without getting the appropriate help or guidance, it has the potential to get worse.
Perhaps fear is holding you back or keeping you locked in an unhappy relationship? If this is the case, you may have to take a leap of faith and know that there is someone better out there. You will never know, until you try. In love tarot readings, the Eight of Cups encourages you to take a thorough inventory of how you relate to others. Whenever it appears in a tarot reading, know that something needs to be left behind.
Sometimes the Eight of Cups can refer to outdated forms of communication and interactions. If you want to try and maintain your current relationship, then things need to change. In love tarot, the Eight of Cups can indicate that old patterns need to be replaced with new ones.
