The Eight of Batons is a tribute to one of the greatest pieces of music, the anthem of all wanderers under the moonlight – Patsy Cline’s “Walkin’ After Midnight.” This card suggests it’s time to take a break from the harsh day, and instead step out under cool lunar light and trust your intuition.
A clown wanders down the middle of a black road among green hills. She wears a red cow-girl outfit with yellow fringe and yellow baubles on the toes of her boots. She carries a red, yellow, and blue baton with a bindle hanging from it over her right shoulder. Seven more red, yellow, and blue batons form fence-posts on the sides of the road. The clown smiles slightly as she looks toward a weeping willow at the side of the road. The willow has a crying face on its trunk, with a red nose and three blue tears. A waning crescent moon is in the sky above, and reflected in a pool in the foreground.
