Most of Eight of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot is filled with a dark, high, towering mountain. The craggy peaks look ominous at first, but in the dark, we cannot really tell what these peaks can hold. At the foot of the mountain are eight cups in different states of brokenness and confusion.
There is a sense of disappointment with this card. The cups appear to have been left in the rain. They still retain some of the elegant beauty they once held, but beauty has now given way to deterioration. We can imagine that these cups were once treasured and cherished. They serve a purpose and have meaning.
Wild Unknown offers a simple phrase for this card: continue. Sometimes, moving on is an easy process. Situations come to an end, we have a proper ending, and everything is fine. But more often than not, moving on can feel heavy, sad, and difficult.
In this image, broken cups can no longer serve us the way they once did. Even so, we might wonder if they are really unrepairable. The next step is the hardest when the situation is not all bad. We may wonder if a situation is salvageable even when we know in our hearts it is time to seek a deeper meaning.

Raise your gaze further and let your feet guide you forward.

IV. Meaning of Eight of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot in the reversed position
Uncertainty keeps you from identifying what is most important, you wallow in choices or paths that don’t pay off. You are realizing what you need to do. Some things in your life have stopped providing joy and hope, and you know you need to leave them behind. However, the thought of leaving what was once familiar makes you nervous. You are afraid to experience feeling lost, afraid of feeling change. Eight of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot in the reversed position suggests that you are stuck in the middle of important decisions. The advice is to be confident in yourself, you must have the courage to believe that you will get more joy than you expected if you go on a new path.
Eight of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot in reverse says that you are feeling confused about your choice. You want to explore new horizons and new possibilities, but on the other hand, you feel afraid of missing out on what you already have. You know when to use your hands in time because what you are doing will not bring the results you deserve. While there are still some fundamental issues left unresolved, you know for sure that no matter how hard you try, you will fail. You will probably feel a lot of pain when you have to give up everything, but this is the best decision. Sometimes, nothing can guarantee that you will leave, maybe today you want to but re-think it tomorrow.
The reversed Eight of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot still emphasizes that there are many problems in the relationship. Simply, you cannot figure out whether you should stay away from your partner or at least try to get rid of the trouble. Obviously, you are hurting, but you think if you and your partner break up, you will have to be single for the rest of your life because no one else will want to be with you for long. In short, you lack confidence, sometimes self-esteem. This is also tied to your partner’s feelings. He/she does like you, however, he/she is not confident enough to be with you.
Eight of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot in the reversed position can reflect hopelessness and floating from place to place without a clear purpose just because you cannot stay in one place for too long or cannot stand someone forever. You may fear closeness and attachment and have trouble keeping your promises and commitments. You begin to find it easy to give up and have nothing to do with the barriers that are holding you back. Satisfaction with what you already have makes you falter and afraid to venture into a challenging new environment. Perhaps you think you don’t belong in your current environment or people have overestimated your abilities.
When things get too difficult, you quickly get out and leave your problems behind rather than confronting them directly. This does not help solve your problems, on the contrary, it also makes you lost and your image deteriorates in the eyes of those around you. You must have faith in your own abilities and assert your core values. Re-examine yourself with purpose and meaning in your life, affirming who you are, where you are, and what you want. You don’t just come here to wander aimlessly or do errands and then leave, you can create much greater value than that and deserve higher positions. Have the courage to stand up and accept responsibility, you can always rely on the help of people around you. Think back to see whether your approach is correct, whether you are setting a limit around yourself that makes it difficult for others to reach you, or are you in your shell for too long so that you forgot about the connections on the outside. Think of the difficulties that come about for nothing but to help make you stronger and more resilient.
