Monday, May 5, 2014 – Fear and Courage


Today, we have the Eight of Cups.

The emphasis is on courage. How badly do you want what you want?

Eights are related to Strength or Justice card depending on the deck. You may find that both interpretations fit. Strength is about strength and courage. The Justice card is about doing what’s right and true.

Do you have courage to be true to yourself? Sure you do!

In this particular card from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot, the girl motions towards a dark corridor as if to say, “Are you coming?”

There is a desire to follow her and go through the unlit corridor, if only out of curiosity. Are you willing to go through the dark (your fears) in order to get what you want?

In astrology, this would be described by your Mars function. With Saturn involved, you may fear what you want to pursue or fear getting what you want. It may even extend to fear of success. Sound familiar?

Do you have something you want to pursue but simultaneously have fears about? Did you overcome a fear? Tell us about it!
