Reversed Eight of Cups as Feelings
Feelings For You
Feelings thrive on action, and the Eight of Cups certainly is not a card of action. Whilst remaining loyal to their caring nature when it comes to you, there is a strong chance that feelings simply do not exist. You can view this as a positive because your mind and world are in a different place to those of this person. You are ready to move quickly and get to know each other better, and they are struck in their own minds.
If you want to explore a friendship first, you are more likely to see this going somewhere. If you want them to suddenly have feelings as well as act upon them, you are in for disappointment, because this is unlikely to happen. Don;t view it as a write off, dear soul. Look at it as a way of making a new friend, and seeing where it takes you down the road.
Feelings for Someone
You are being pursued by a potential mate, and you have been caught off guard. Where does this stem from? Are you surprised that somebody finds you attractive? Does this not happen often enough for you to genuinely believe you could make somebody happy? Why are you stalling?
Sure as the sun sets, you are confused at even the mere string of questions you were just asked. It can be hard to return advances when you are sat still, wishing, hoping an praying you would just be left alone to dwell in peace. Nobody can dwell forever. And so I propose this. Take one step, and see how you feel. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by, because your feelings are there.
Reversed Eight of Cups as Advice
Does He Think About Me?
I want you to be happy, dear soul. I want you to have the love you deserve, so that you can feel empowered within a meeting of two hearts, and use it to show how deep your affection can go. On this occasion, I find it highly unlikely that he harbours any feelings for you. If he does per chance, they are small and based on nothing but his own ego. You do not want to start any form of commitment with somebody who is not looking for a two way street of respect.
Is He Cheating?
The cheating is unlikely to be happening, but that isn’t to say he hasn’t thought about it. With you both in a fairly unhappy place, there is bound to be that longing look towards somebody who could make him happy. This type of act stems from the inability to be happy together as you are, and not because he simply wants his cake and to eat it. Instead, think about how you feel. Equally as stuck, I am certain. Nothing will happen unless you go your own way, but this thought process of another only stems from the stagnation of your current union.
Is He Right For Me?
He once was. There was a precious time where you were both extremely happy. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and everything felt perfect. What happens when hat initial excitement fades? You have to put the work in. Compromise, respect, be there for each other through the good and bad. Real love is hard work and this is something you both cannot seem to complete whilst together. There is no perfect time to end a relationship, but there is always a good time to question it, and follow your gut.
Reversed Eight of Cups Meaning For Job and Career
What Is Your Dream Job?
What you are currently afraid of, is the notion that you could be happy. Maybe you feel as though you don’t deserve to go for your dream job. Maybe it involves travelling out of your comfort zone (quite literally), or maybe you need to do some further studying in order to be in that job. What won’t help, is wallowing in the what ifs and remaining in your current job that, quite frankly, you outgrew years ago. You are in for an exciting ride in a fast paced role. You just need to get up and move.
Should I Change Careers?
Knowing you as I do, this is a huge question. You don’t like to just flit and change jobs because you feel like it, but something is pulling you away from your current job. It served you well, you learned a lot and made many friends, but the job itself is making you unhappy, and spending that amount of time in any one place where you aren’t fulfilled will affect you mentally. My advice here with the Eight of Cups in reverse, is to start searching for ventures new.
