The eight of sticks
A word from the creator of the Linestrider tarot:
Movement, speed, journey, haste, time to act, progress, hope, arrival of a message.
The eight of clubs indicates now is the time for action. This card may mean that you should move on in business, a romantic relationship, or some other type of action that has sparked your ambivalence. The cards are on your side: act now! Have you considered taking a trip or taking a vacation, signing up for a new training program, applying for promotion? This card indicates that the time to move forward has arrived. You may receive a message or letter that you expected, such as an acceptance letter or a proposal. The eight of sticks indicates that when the waiting period has ended, the wheel of fortune is turning in your favor. Take the initiative.
In a reading, this card invites you to take the initiative in a project, a proposal or in your relationships. If this card pops up in any financial reading, it's time to start looking for a new home or start the business of your dreams.
On the flip side, the card means you might face a delay or setback in the plans you hoped to implement. Something might thwart a plan or even make you feel like you're going backwards. The card may indicate that you need to take a break, slow down, and take the time to assess certain details. You may have too many initiatives going on, causing you to scatter your resources. To counteract the negative effects of this card, you will need to reduce your activities and focus only on the things that will allow you to progress. "
