Wednesday, we have the 8 of Cups.
The 9 of Cups is often called the wish card and contains its various related interpretations. But today, the 8 of Cups will share the 9 of Cups meaning because its placement before the nine in the suit.
Sometimes, you get what you wish for and there’s a problem: it doesn’t turn out the way you had hoped, you lose all desire for it once you get it, you don’t know what to do, and other gripes. People with Venus in Aries can struggle with this since they generally lose interest once they’ve conquered the object of desire.
Now that you’ve gotten what you wished for, what do you do now?
Some people pursue the next dream (or love object) and repeat this over and over. But they are dissatisfied in the end. They are stuck, repeating the 8 of Cups.
There’s nothing wrong with repeating something, so long as you are getting somewhere! But if you are repeating a pattern, getting nowhere, and feeling dissatisfied each time, it’s worth a closer examination.
There is no easy, cookie cutter solution for this. You’ll have to do things like ask why something isn’t working, examine your expectations, look at your own actions, and break a pattern that does not work for you.
However, the 8 of Cups offers some guidance. Six of Cups conveys harmony and Two of Cups conveys a meeting. If you can meet the harmony in yourself and in your life, you’ll be much closer to getting what you really want or need.
Can you relate? Have you untangled yourself from a pattern?
