This majority of this card is filled by a dark, tall, towering mountain. The craggy peaks seem ominous at first glance, but in the dark, we can’t really tell what these peaks might hold. At the base of the mountain are eight cups in varying states of shatter and disarray.

There’s a forlorn feeling to this card. The goblets seem to have been left out in the rain. They still retain some of the elegant beauty they once held, but the beauty is now giving way to damage. I can imagine that these goblets were once respected and cherished. They served a purpose and had meaning.

The Wild Unknown gives a simple phrase for this card: moving on. Occasionally, moving on is an easy process. Situations come to an end, we have proper closure, and everything feels okay. But more often than not, moving on can feel heavy, sorrowful and difficult.

In this imagery, the broken cups can no longer serve us in the way they once did. Even so, we might wonder if they are REALLY beyond repair. Moving on is the most difficult when the situation is not entirely bad. We might wonder if a situation is salvageable even when we know in our hearts it is time to seek higher ground.

In a reading, this card might suggest that you consider where you find meaning in your life. Have you remained in situations that are no longer as fulfilling as they used to be? Is your emotional energy being drained? It may be time to assess what you need to leave behind in order to rise towards your next vista of fulfillment.
