This card is about coming to a turning point emotionally and spiritually. There is a sense of leaving behind the baser emotional instincts of passion and lust and journeying toward higher ideals of spiritual growth. The Eight of Roses could indicate a long-awaited commitment, or conversely, the end of an unhealthy relationship that has lasted too long. A vine of eight white roses indicates that spiritual clarity of the heart has been found, and this epiphany will encourage you in the next phase of your journey.
Reversed: A bumpy emotional road lies ahead. A long but unfruitful period of emotional intensity must be addressed in order to move forward.
