    Upright Eight of Wands as Feelings in Love Tarot Card Reading

    Tarot Eight of Wands as Will I find my new love?

     I believe this card is the most desired and clear to give a divination to this question. 

    The Eight of Wands as new love means a sudden acquaintance that will be of great interest to you, falling in love, sudden passion. This will likely happen on a trip, somewhere on the road. Or maybe in some kind of correspondence on the Internet. 

    8 of Wands tells of the beginning of a relationship, of a sudden outbreak of passion, of a new acquaintance, of a new love. But to learn what this relationship will lead to, you need to look at additional cards.

    Tarot Eight of Wands as feelings. Eight of Wands as How he feels about me?

    According to Arthur Waite, who created this Tarot card deck, the Eight of Wands is sometimes also called the Arrows of Love. I always recommend reading his book first if you decided to learn the Tarot for divination.  The book is small, but it contains so much wisdom and tips. Check it out below. 

    So the 8 of Wands as feelings means love at first sight, as it is a card of speed. Although this is not the deep and stable feeling of love, but rather falling in love and passion.

    If you have just met each other, then be sure that he is attracted to you. But for now, this is an impulse, not a deep and stable feeling.

    If you have known each other for a long time or have been together for a long time, the Eight of Wands as feelings means that a person can fall in love with you again and be filled with the warmest feelings towards you. A passionate attraction to you is now emerging in his soul. There will be changes in his attitude towards you very soon.

    Will he confess his love?

    Eight of Wands as will he confess his love means that now he has such an impulse to express his feelings for you. And this can happen in the very near future if his feelings are really sincere and stable.

    Although 8 of Wands hints at love, at the same time, you may not get his confession. It happens because at the moment your partner has such an impulse and zeal, but also his intentions can quickly and swiftly change. This may depend on circumstances or not deep feelings for you

    Is he a good match / partner for me? Is he the one?

    Eight of Wands means that he is a partner with whom you will definitely not be bored. Relations with him will be dynamic and rapidly changing. In general, the Eight of Wands has a positive flare. 

    Relations with this partner are filled with a quick change of events, clarity, sincerity, and purity. Thus, quarrels bypass you, and in conversations with your partner, you achieve more and more mutual understanding.

    However, if you are not so active in life and love, you can quickly get tired of such a rapidly changing relationship.

    Will he make a marriage proposal?

    Love and a desire to act are raging in his soul. The card tells of the initial stage of the emergence of relationships. The Eight of Wands as marriage means that it is too early to talk about marriage, although there may be such an idea in his head. But that idea hasn’t fully strengthened to become an action. In general, the Eight of Wands is characterized by only a short period of time. Therefore, the card will not be able to tell about far-sighted plans.

    Will he contact me?

    The Eight of Wands as will he contact me means that he has the intention to write you a message or to call you. Also, this card means that it is going to happen quite soon.

    Tarot Eight of Wands: Does my Ex love me? How does my ex feel about me?

    The Eight of Wands as feelings for an Ex means that a new flame flared up in his heart. If you have recently broken up, then his feelings for you flare up with renewed vigor. It can also indicate a desire to resolve problems.

    If you have not been together for a long time, the card may tell that he has many new plans for a future relationship. And because 8 of Wands is future-oriented, then most likely he sees a new relationship but not with you. 

    This card may mean that he wants to text or call you. He may have the desire to clarify your situation.

    Does my Ex remember me? Does he miss me?

    The Eight of Wands as does he miss me means that he missed you and remembers you. He is more and more captured by the feeling and passionate desire for you and he cannot restrain it.

    If you have already parted for a long time, then suddenly he remembered about you and is thinking of you. And he might want to contact you.

    Will my Ex come back?

    The Eight of Wands as reconciliation and will he come back means that he has such plans, or rather it is an impulse to come back. But how durable this impulse is, only time will tell. The card does not tell of the result. So the divination can be either yes or no. Depends upon your situation. 

    For better understanding and divination it is recommended to pull one more card to see the development of the situation.
