I can’t help myself. I always see this card as the arrows of love. But, what this card represents is broader than infatuation, it’s speed and wild energy. Eights are well on their way to finishing a cycle. They are the push or movement you need to get you closer to the finish line.
When you get this card, something has been set in motion. It is making its arc in the sky and looking for a place to land. This is not the time for planning, this is the execution. The ball is already in play. Get ready to reap the fruits of your labors. Just remember, you have to relinquish a little bit of control for the project to grow beyond your original design. This is an exciting time. Enjoy it!
The Suit — Rods, Wands, Staves, or Clubs
The Rod is a tool with a spark of life in it. This suit is associated with the element of fire, due largely to an ancient belief that fire is held captive in wood. Certainly, sensitive souls can feel the energy of wood, but we don’t expect it to combust on its own. When we refer to this suit as Wands, we acknowledge its power. Rods are creative and fiery. They can also feel like a burden in excess.
Number — 8
Eight is a number of movement, power, and adjustment.
The Eight of Rods only interacts with the Pages of each suit.
Pages: Any of the Pages in combination with the Eight of Rods (Wands, Staves, or Clubs in other decks) indicate a message could play a key role in events. You can expect its arrival soon.
