IV. The guideline of Eight of Cups Deviant Moon Tarot
Eight of Cups Deviant Moon Tarot denotes disappointment, emotional failure, betrayal, or heart damage. Several Tarot decks illustrate this view showing a young woman who has just been sexually harassed and then pushed aside by a stranger passing through her village. His careless actions hurt her, with possible consequences. This is a tough card to interpret, but a practical one so far as it warns against misplaced trust and unprotected protective flaws.
With the Eight of Cups Deviant Moon Tarot, look inside and realize what part of you still holds the old grudge from a past injury or trauma. For the most part, your future self has stood up and moved forward. You are moving on with your life. However, there may still be part of you that holds out and resists the healing. Are you nurturing old wounds from painful losses of belief and trust? If so, now might be a good time to take a close look at your current engine.
Take note if you are still influenced by a part of yourself that makes you less interested or optimistic. Do not deny this pessimistic tendency. Not realizing the truth only causes repression to blow up in another part of our soul. Instead, find ways to recognize and accept the hesitations and fears you might feel, and pamper them. Then you can put some old emotions in their right place – far in distance.
