Eight of Cups
The Eight of Cups suggests that you are beginning an important journey of self-exploration. The cups the character in the picture is leaving behind seem organized and stable, though there is a noticeable gap in them. This shows that you have a relatively stable situation that you are leaving behind, but that you feel that there is something more, something your soul is seeking. The moon is shown eclipsing the sun which shows how your search for deeper meaning is blocking out the importance of ordinary daily life. You must climb the mountain to find your spiritual peak. It is said that the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
