The "sevens" are generally about assessing and evaluating, but in the "eights" things have been put in order, so now it is very clear what is real and what isn't. There can be no more wasting time with denial or fantasies. And what is seen in this Eight of Cups? An old potting shed is filled with broken and neglected tools. What should have been kept in good working order has been discarded in a dark shed. What should have been valued and appreciated is now ignored and neglected. This relationship is obviously lacking in what Aretha spells out in her song: R-E-S-P-E-C-T. However, the stack of pots do show some order - five on one side and three on the other. The imbalance in the relationship is apparent; one person thinks their needs and desires are more important than the other person's. But the biggest "tell" of all are the empty pots; there is nothing growing at all. The feeling of emptiness is what characterizes this relationship, whether it is with a person or group. Time to move some of those pots into the sunlight and fill them with fresh soil and seeds.
