Eight of Cups

Description & Symbolism

In the foreground, a young girl's toys, dolls and stuffed animals sit at a small table that contains volumes of fairy tales and a discarded porcelain tea set. In the background, the young girl, a preteen now, is dialing her new boyfriend on the cell phone, and getting ready to go out. Posters of rock bands are quickly replacing the childish art on her bedroom walls, as she leaves behind the memories of her childhood on a journey of maturity and growth in pursuit of self-discovery... and really hot new clothes.

Card Meaning

The Eight of Cups is all about a new journey, and leaving behind the past that has simply outlived itself. There is no regret or sadness in this parting, and like this young girl who leaves behind the childish trappings of her past years, so that she can become what she is meant to be...this card signifies a feeling of fond memories of what Was, but an understanding that one has simply grown up and no longer has any need for what must be left behind.

Artistic Media

Acrylic on paperboard.

Artist's Bio

Chronata is a Renaissance woman, who writes games, poetry, stories and scripts; directs theatre and children; performs Shakespeare, puppet shows and improvisational works; paints walls, sculptures, boxes and faces (but rarely canvas), and reads tarot, stones, people, migratory bird flight patterns, and lots of books. She resides near a very pretty lake and large Faery infested woods. Go back to the project index, read the traditional card meaning, or get a free automated reading.
