Rider WaiteTarot Reading



Properties of 8 of Cups


Alternate Names: Indolence


Keywords / Additional Meanings:

Marriage with a fair woman. Reversed: Perfect satisfaction.



A man of dejected aspect is deserting the cups of his felicity, enterprise, undertaking or previous concern.

Divinatory Meaning:

The card speaks for itself on the surface, but other readings are entirely antithetical - giving joy, mildness, timidity, honour, modesty. In practice, it is usually found that the card shews the decline of a matter, or that a matter which has been thought to be important is really of slight consequence - either for good or evil.

Reversed Meaning:

Great joy, happiness, feasting.


Astrological / Elemental Correspondence: Saturn in Pisces
