Time to let go of the past.
The 8 of Cups is one of the three departure cards of the Tarot and stands for parting with a heavy heart.* It shows that we break away from familiar surroundings, separate from people or things that are close to our heart, and go on our way into an uncertain future. In any case, it means that we are not being driven away,** but rather are leaving of our own accord, whereby it could be that we have no other choice. The particular difficulty of this card lies in the doubly negative aspect: we have to give up things that meant much to us, and we do not know where our path leads.
