8 of Swords

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords (Voices) – Thursday, October 24, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Why am I not surprised to see this card make an appearance.  Take note, our 8 of Swords today is labeled the 8 of Voices, from the recently-released Muse Tarot by artist, Chris-Anne Donnelly.  This feels to be quite an appropriate name for this card, because it really is very mental, and you may need to get out of your own head today.  The mind can turn on you and be your worst enemy, causing you to feel powerless, and rendering you unable to see your way through a situation.

When you see the 8 of Swords (Voices), it is time to open your eyes, step out of that little box, and explore the possibilities.  Some out-of-the-box moves may very well be required, but if you keep telling yourself that you can not do something, then you will not do it.  This really can be self-defeating, and that means that if you feel this way, it is time to retrain the brain.  Find means to focus toward a more positive outlook, and empower yourself to say “I know I can”.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Sunday, September 29, 2019

Posted on Updated on

There is an energy in the air today which could leave you in 8 of Swords mode.  Whether you feel trapped, restricted, or powerless, with no solutions in sight, it really is just energy from the Universe exacerbating these feelings.  Do know that it will pass and you will quickly forget all about it.  If you are an out-of-the-box thinker, you may fare better than others, but with a few small adjustments along the way, most should be able to navigate this day just fine.

You often hear me say “The only one who can stop you is you”.   This holds true for today and every other, for it is mostly about perception.  Should you allow yourself to think that there is no way out, that things will never change, that there are no solutions, then you are putting yourself in the position of being your own worst enemy.  Do not fear stepping out of the box and trying something new and different; you will only know if it works if you try.

See you here tomorrow!

THE CARD’S STORY BY: DHARMA T LEFEVRE

I chose Medusa because she was considered powerful, but was also a victim of her own fate and decisions. This card speaks of heavy choices you must make, and the things that are stopping you from making wise choices. I personally get in my own way a lot, from anything like overthinking to even chickening out on making a big decisions , so the lesson of this card not only fits with a lot of what I do to myself, but what happens when I let my own fears get the better of me. Medusa’s eyes are not only blindfolded but she is unaware that her own snakes are what seems to be doing the most damage and the chains that hold her back, can easily be broken.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

Medusa stands, lost, blindfolded and alone. She feels the swords pressing in, the manacles around her wrists. But doesn’t try to free herself…if she did, she would realize the chains are fragile and wispy, the swords held by her own snakes – one dangles from her own wrist. You need to open your eyes, and realize your own power to change the situation. You’re not trapped. You’re not alone. It may feel like it, but that’s your fear and doubt talking, skewing your perception and keeping you a prisoner of your own mind. There is a way through this, a way to change this. Have faith in yourself, shake free, and let yourself see the situation clearly. Move out of your own way!

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: MEDUSA

Medusa was a snake-haired monster, able to turn humans to stone with a single look in Greek mythology. But she wasn’t born that way – she was made monstrous by Athena, for defiling the sanctity of Athena’s temple, having been seduced and raped by Poseidon. It was a punishment, for her vanity and for the desecration. But it also gave her great power – no man would ever be able to attack her again – the snakes warned her of impending danger, and her eyes were a weapon. Only the hero Perseus was able to defeat her, and even then it took some help from the Gods. Given the fact that Medusa is largely punished for boasting that she’s prettier than Athena, and her destiny is sealed from that point, we felt she made a fitting depiction of this card.

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Posted on Updated on

When it comes to energies, this week is fully loaded, a Lunar Eclipse, six retrogrades, some Venus aspects, and at times it can all seem a bit daunting. It is as if the Universe keeps throwing up roadblocks and placing obstacles in your path. You may hear yourself saying “I can’t!” should it all become too much to bear. We see the 8 of Swords appear more frequently than any other card and with good reason.

Cut yourself some slack today, as well as those around you, if you don’t not feel capable of surmounting the odds right now. Know that this will soon pass and you will be heard saying “Obstacles? What obstacles?”

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Sunday, June 23, 2019

Posted on Updated on

 

img_8538

It is hard to believe we have not seen this card since January, but I believe it still holds the record for appearances here as the Tarot Card of the Day. So much of what we have been discussing lately has been about mindset, and just how important it is for you to have a positive one. Often, when we see the 8 of Swords, you may be self-imposing limitations upon yourself. It is easy to convince yourself, especially after so many times of things not going right, that there simply is no way out of a particular situation, and you may feel blind to the solution.

As I said, mindset and self-imposed restrictions are indicated here. Some out-of-the-box thinking may indeed be in order. The first step which is necessary toward success is to believe in yourself. If you allow yourself to keep both eyes open to all possibilities, you shall not feel stuck for long.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Friday, January 11, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Here it is again! The 8 of Swords is notorious for showing up more frequently than any other card here on the blog. However, this time around, how you handle it appears to be changing. Yesterday, I mentioned that the Sun would conjunct Pluto today and that personal transformation is imminent. Something has left you feeling powerless and trapped for far too long, and the urge to break free is likely overwhelming.

One of the things which I always say with this card is “The only thing that can stop you is you”. Truly, this transformation which is needed at this time is not as much about transforming your outer world as it is your headspace. Your mindset is particularly important now, and it is time to step out of the box in which you have been living. There exists solutions and answers to your problems, you merely need to open your eyes to the possibilities. Having the Sun conjunct Pluto can have a very positive impact on your ability to move forward, rather than feeling as though your hands are tied. The Sun shines brightly and will bring its positivity and vitality to some very dark spaces; let the sun shine in and illuminate your soul. Go ahead, free yourself.

See you here tomorrow!

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!
