Eight of Cups tarot card

Card 1 - Eight of Cups

In the Eight of Cups, we are confronted with the moment of transition. We see a cloaked figure taking off to a barren land leaving behind eight golden cups. He is tired of what those cups that he has spent so much time collecting, and is now setting out to seeking a higher purpose. It may be a result of a boredom or unhappiness that comes with realizing that whatever they have been looking for in life isn t as pleasurable or as satisfying as they once assumed it would be. The person undertaking this journey might also signify be seeking excitement in the unknown. The mountainous barren lands that he sets off to can also be symbols of facing new challenges. Their stark emptiness seem to indicate that they are waiting for one to come and shape the. The journey that is taken can be done in the guise of trying out new things that have the potential to help one grow both mentally as well as spiritually.  It also shows the willingness to detach oneself from others so that one can work on self-improvement, self-understanding and growth.

Fool tarot card

Card 2 - Fool

The Fool depicts a youth walking joyfully into the world. He is taking his first steps, and he is exuberant, joyful, excited. He carries nothing with him except a small sack, caring nothing for the possible dangers that lie in his path. Indeed, he is soon to encounter the first of these possible dangers, for if he takes just a step more, he he topple over the cliff that he is reaching. But this doesn't seem to concern him - we are unsure whether he is just naive or simply unaware. The dog at his heels barks at him in warning, and if he does not become more aware of his surroundings soon, he may never see all the adventures that he dreams of encountering.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Watch for Aces, which also signify new beginnings and strengthen the meaning. If all four Aces appear with The Fool (Life Spread and Anchor) it shows a completely new lifestyle - all new beginnings across the board.

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Death (endings) Hierophant (structure and convention).

Fool combinations
When The Fool precedes another card try inserting “new and unexpected” before the interpretation of the following card as you start to explore the ‘flavour’ and atmosphere of possible meanings. The Fool is normally experienced with an element of surprise.
