The eight of cups is a sign of emotional stagnation. This happens when the flow of energy or love suddenly stops and you are waiting for it to return. However, waiting is not a good thing for you to be doing, as you will not be going nowhere, you are going to have to move yourself. The eight of cups therefore symbolises walking away from a difficult situation. As cups are linked to emotions, then it would probably be a relationship that you are giving too much to and not getting nowhere near as much back. One sided relationships cause nothing but pain, so when the eight of cups appears in a reading, it is a slap across the face that can not be ignored.
