EIGHT OF CUPS: INDOLENCE
Astrologically, this card is Saturn in Pisces, which brings about a sense of disinterest with the material condition. Saturn in the Water sign Pisces, causes a certain introspection of subtle problems turning one's focus away from the material condition; a subtle depression of a sort and a neglect of physical presence. A discontent.
The divination meaning of this card is the abandoned success, or decline of interest in anything.
Emotional stagnation is a sense of being overly tired, drained, depleted and exhausted.When thrown during a reading, the querent is advised of the need of structure or discipline to set some limits on over-extension. Due to the querent's past refusal to leave some situation, even though they know they have taken all they can from it, a certain unconscious emotional change is taking place and giving the seeker no choice but to move on.
The two central golden cups are shown flowing emotionally downward into our lower emotional natures. What we once thought of as previously emotionally rewarding ( Open lotus flowers) is no longer satisfying our higher sense of being; the three top cups represent our higher sense of I AM ME. It could be said that the trinity of empty cups represents our lower sense of I dislike me. It is time to reevaluate and set different emotional goals. We are energy-in-motion, as Spirit we activate the animation of our bodies. This card says that the Spirit is not gleeful in its performance as a body. In fact it is wondering if it is all worth the trouble. This is what many call "self-absorbed" behavior, were we concentrate on failure to succeed rather than instigate a new motion in our life. This is easily changed just by taking time to smell the Roses and go about designing a new garden plot. So take heart, for in 8 days, or 8 weeks , you will feel a renewal of cascading energy that launches a new direction in your life!
