What does the Eight of Cups mean?

June 1, 2015

Eight of Cups -- Tarot of the MastersHere is a pithy meaning for the Eight of Cups:
“Parting is such sweet sorrow.” — Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)

There is a subtle, sorrowful feeling to this card. Hopefully, when it comes up in a reading, we can help the querent find a way to incorporate that sorrow into their lives in a positive, meaningful way. I think that’s part of the positive side of this card that balances the sorrowful side — growing and moving on after the sorrowful parting.

Note: Each of these pithy Tarot meanings is just one facet of its card. Find more of them on my Card Meanings page.  Also, get my Pithy Tarot eBook or the FREE app that uses my pithy Tarot meanings … and LIKE my Pithy Tarot Facebook page!
