8 of Swords

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Posted on Updated on

There is no such thing as coincidence.  Mercury began its final retrograde of 2018 back on November 16.  We last saw the 8 of  Swords November 17; now here it is again, the day before the little trickster is due to return to direct motion.  Everyone out there has had at least one area where they have felt powerless in the last 3-1/2 weeks.  The 8 of Swords, of course, has the reputation for most appearances here on the blog.  What has your hands tied?

With this card we often feel as though there are no solutions, and today you have permission to feel that way.  After all, the fog of this Mercury retrograde is clouding your vision, and it will take a few days for it to lift enough to really make a difference.  Do not forget there is an awesome New Moon in Sagittarius on the 7th.  For now, keep tweaking those intentions, because you will want them to be absolutely perfect! Bear with the current feeling; it is about to change in a very big way in the coming weeks.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Saturday, November 17, 2018

Posted on Updated on

It’s back! The 8 of Swords is here once again to remind you to get out of your own way, get out of your head and limited ways of thinking, and to open your eyes to the possibilities. But, wait! Today is the first full day of Mercury retrograde, and it is in the sign of Sagittarius, the one that brings us the BIG Picture. Very often, when we see the 8 of Swords, we feel powerless to find the way out of a particular situation. I will be honest with you, between today and tomorrow, I believe it is possible this can go either way. Everyone, of every sign, is affected by Mercury retrograde differently. So, while it is not unlikely that you can achieve a breakthrough in one area, you may feel as though you are in a complete fog in another. Mercury will remain retrograde through December 6, with its shadow period ending December 24.

Let us not forget that Venus is newly direct, and where Venus retrograde has influenced your actions over the last forty-plus days, you may finally be finding the answers to things which Venus presented to you during that time. What is important here is to focus on the things where you CAN find resolution, rather than beating yourself up over things which you can not. Know this, when the timing is right, and it will be, those blinders will magically disappear, and your hands will no longer feel tied.

Also important to note, when the Justice card appeared the other day, I mentioned it would be connected to the upcoming cards as a new semblance of justice itself begins to play out in the world. In the video below, I reference the GoFundMe hoax which broke this week, showing the shift in the balance between good and evil, right and wrong, and when you pair it with the 8 of Swords, you will be seeing people go to jail. Some may surprise you.

See you here tomorrow!

Featured Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – New Babylonian Tarot by Roxana Paul

Posted on

Artist: Roxana Paul

Website: http://www.roxanapaul.com

Keywords

Restriction, obstacles. Being in a limited situation, experiencing a lack of choice.

Artist Interpretation

A blindfolded woman stays in the wilderness surrounded with eight swords stuck in the ground like a fence. This picture has a symbolical meaning of being fenced by circumstances. The woman’s hands are tied behind her back, symbolizing a situation of being trapped. The full moon is barely visible behind the clouds, underlining a gloomy and somber mood of this card.

Card Meaning

Eight of Swords represents a case of self-imposed restriction, inaction, and avoiding responsibilities. This situation may also be characterized as being trapped by circumstances. The most significant elements of this card include:
– facing obstacles;
– being trapped;
– being in bondage;
– avoiding to perform obligations.

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Thursday, September 27, 2018

Posted on Updated on

Here it is again! The 8 of Swords holds the record for most appearances, I believe! However, in the last couple of weeks, both the cards and the energies present, have been pushing you to break out, whether it be a situation, or your comfort zone. As the day begins, you are still under the Aries Moon, where the Full Moon occurred, but it is void and will be moving into Taurus.

This is a card of feeling trapped, powerless, and not being able to see your way out of a situation. The answers exist, but it may require some thinking out of the box on your part. Truly the only thing that can stop you is you. If you get up every day believing that you can’t fix somethings, or that it will never change, then it never will. Release yourself from this mindset. This is a very mental card, showing that we are very often trapped by the power of our own mind. Time to break out and be free of all that has been holding you back from your hopes and dreams.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Posted on Updated on

Today is 8/8/18, otherwise known as the lionsgate portal, brought to you courtesy of the Sun in Leo, the star Sirius, and the Earth. To make today even more special, the Sun, which is currently at home in Leo, is conjunct retrograde Mercury, which is also in Leo. This is a great day for communcating, despite Mercury’s retrograde. The Sun amplifies this and helps add to the clarity of your words and your thoughts. Be certain to make them count.

Normally, when we see the 8 of Pentacles, everyone is all about not knowing how to find a solution for a particular situation which may have had you feeling really trapped. This card is likely the most frequent visitor to the blog, but, ultimately, it is all about you and your perceptions. Remember, the only one who can stop you is you. Harness the energy of today’s conjunction, together with the lionsgate portal, and allow yourself to think outside of the box. Break free from your comfort zone, and find the answers which you have been seeking.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Posted on Updated on

When I first began this blog, over three years ago, this was the most frequent card which I would draw as the Tarot Card of the Day. Nowadays, when it shows up, it is less frequent, and also taking on a whole new vibe. Tomorrow is a New Moon Supermoon Partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer, which promises not to disappoint, especially since there is so much more happening than just a straight up typical New Moon.

Saturn (restriction), will be in a harmonious trine with Uranus (shock, surprise, release) at the time of the New Moon, and obviously you are already feeling this. Pluto also is in on the action, poised to transform your life in some dramatic fashion; I discuss this in my Eclipse Season #2 of 2018 video, exclusive to the $10 tier on Patreon https://patreon.com/tarotbycecelia – Over the coming weeks, you are being released from situations which have left you feeling trapped for so very long, and, at long last, there will be transformation and progress coming your way. It is so nice to finally see such a turnaround with the 8 of Swords, as you become unstuck, find solutions, and open your eyes to all of the possibilities becoming available to you.

See you here tomorrow!
