Now, this is a very strange card that reliably embarrasses me when it turns up in a reading for someone. For it does mean news - nothing much more. It means news that have not arrived yet but are soon going to arrive. Beyond this there isn't really anything to say about the Eight of Rods. One way to wriggle out of my embarrassment is saying that new impulses are always good and that the Eight of Rods indicate that something will change at last.
