The Tarot of Vampyres - Eight of Grails


This vampire could be the guardian of the mansion. He knows very well the man the mansion belongs to. The vampire here was loyal and dedicated to him for years, decades maybe. But then things changed and not in a good way. Their relationship just like the cup has dried up and there is nothing left. But he still feels bound to the relationship and stays by duty. You can see too with his ragged cloth how "poor" he has become.

I could also see the same for a husband/wife relationship turned sour.

There is a tree creature in the back holding a cup, but of what? Absinthe?

The saturn symbol is on the cup and the pisces symbol on his chest. I mention this because 8 of cups is saturn in pisces.

I want to point that since the deck is heavily inspired by the Thoth, the keyword for this card is INDOLENCE.
