Letters From Thoth and The New Era Elements
Eight of Cups
Well this just looks unpleasant. All of the energy and emotions are stagnating, things are broken and being wasted. This is a sort of emotional apathy that can be very dangerous to let grow. In The Book of Thoth, Crowley calls this card, "the German Measles of Christian Mysticism and the very apex of unpleasantness." He also says it's like a party in which all prep has been done but the host forgot to ask anyone over. In other words, this is something we have let happen and we need to fix it.
Mother of Earth
Just looking at the card gives you a perfect idea of what it holds - comfort, security, love, caring, compassion. Calm and practical, willing to care for others and making sure that those she cares for are comfortable and loved.
So today is a day to remove ourselves from any victim mentality we may be harboring and really look at where we are and how we got here. But do so from a place of love and no judgement. Take a firm and positive stance to open your energy back up and wash away any stagnant emotions. Reconnect yourself to the Universe and let that energy flow.
