When you think the grass is greener on the other side, it often isn’t. A decision made in emotion is usually a mistake. The 8 of Cups from any other deck would leave us feeling a little on the low side. You may be planning to leave, you may think you’re making the right decision – but under the influence of La Luna, can you be so sure?

Dancer Eight offers us hope instead of uncertainty disguised as it. The bright sun warms our face and shows us the potential of renewal. The grass is on this side and is part of the journey and not some elusive goal.

There is a joy in this journey – Dancer Eight isn’t leaving under cover of darkness, nor under a cloud. She knows her decision is the right one for her as she’s guided by the sun and its promise of renewal. In her heart and mind, she knows it’s where she’s meant to be, following the beacon in her soul. Freedom is before her.
