Clow Cards: The Jump


This card is asking you to take a leap upwards where you can get a better perspective of what is happening around & below you. By doing this, you may see where issues or problems are; thus giving you the chance to take alternative or diverting action. Make sure you don't just jump around on one spot though- you only ever see the same thing over and over!

I think you are bounding around a little too much without anything to show for it. Yes, it is good to always be on the go and not become static or stagnant, but if it is done continuously- without giving any time for an issue to be evaluated or settled- you are just becoming the proverbial rolling stone. Do you find you always want to rebound back to a situation you know is comfortable & safe? If so, you may need to break that elastic and break free.

The Jump (Eight of Clubs [Wands])

Upright: A Goal is approaching, new ideas, a journey by air, love will find its mark, love of open air. Human charm is like a power-up. You will become busy both publicly and privately, but will still be able to make enough time for adequate sleep.

Meanings inspired from the anime

The Jump has a feisty temperament and likes to pick fights for no reason. It could represent a childish person or situation/problem.

On the other hand, once Sakura managed to capture it, it became a valuable ally who could help and support her physically in many situations by giving her the power to jump high and far without effort. It can symbolize the need for a little "boost".

It could also represent hectic energy.

The Jump is under the power of the Windy, the Moon and is related to Eastern magic.
