there's the fool again! i love how tarot will show you the same card(s) if you keep asking the same question. i went through this huge shift a bit ago. the end of a cycle. i felt it, the cards showed it. so many majors all the time. but im still in the limbo of transition. you know? the cycle ended but the new one hasn't completely begun...or hasn't become clear, i guess. and i see that here. 8's signify such a shift. they really are cards of change and transition, and always show that for/to me. the two toughest, but also most meaningful, 8's for me are right here: cups and arrows/swords. i absolutely love @mesquitetarot's interpretation of the 8cups. the snake shedding its skin. snakes have been a crazy strong talisman for me since i had an intense encounter with a rattler while hiking alone in saguaro national park last year. but they've also been important for me my entire life. one of my family's favorite anecdotes is about how, when i was a toddler and we lived in the deserts of southern california, i was so drawn to the snakes around our house that they had to teach me "no huggies for snakes." i wanted to hug and hold them, and would crawl/walk right toward them. i hope to embrace this talisman again now. because while, yes, snakes are masters of transition, they also have to be so patient while they shed their skin. it's not like it all comes off with one wiggle or shake. they slowly slowly inch out of it. they get tired and stop. and then they start again. they keep going until the old skin is off. so, let me be like the snake, patient and determined, as i inch my way out of this old skin.
