8 of Swords

Featured Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

Impotence, fear, isolation

Artist Interpretation

Bound in place by her own tail and surrounded by swords, this little monster stands in a barren land, with her eyes closed tight. She is trapped in her own mind, and although there are always answers, she cannot see any way out at the moment.

Card Meaning

You have the power here, even if you don’t feel like it. You’re in a mire of your own making. You feel trapped and isolated, but the only thing blocking your way is yourself. Even though you can’t see it right now, there is a way out of this…just have faith in yourself. Shake yourself free, open your eyes and let yourself see the situation clearly. Move out of your own way, don’t let your doubts and fears hold you back.

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Saturday, May 13, 2017

Posted on Updated on

Wow, we have not seen this card since January! It used to hold the record for frequent appearances. Do you see that opening in the swords which almost resemble a cage? That is how you have felt for so long with regard to a particular situation…trapped, and unable to set yourself free. The opening was always there, but you are just about ready to notice it.

Often, when we feel stuck and the 8 of Swords shows up, we think there is no solution to our problem, when in reality it has been possible to escape it. I usually associate it with needing to think outside of the box in order to find the answer. There is definitely an answer; it is important to open your eyes and take a good look around, realizing that the issue does not necessarily require one desired outcome.

Featured Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – 78 Tarot Carnival ~ Cirque du Tarot

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Stefania Russo

Website: LadyFanhir-art.it

Keywords

Self-restriction, impotence, isolation, limits

Artist’s Statement

“A lonely deer girl was captured for the pleasure of the Freak Circuses director and for visitors. The tamer gave her name of Lady Baby Deer…Put her into the Prison of Eight Swords, and sewed her eyes to keep her calm and quiet. During a cloudy night, she found precious scissors in the dry ground, and cut the wire near her eyes, that ties her to the Eight Swords. Desperately wishing to be free, and in the passion of escape, she destroyed the mirror, and finally found the only truth, reflected on the glass. She’s a monster. She’s alone. She’s not human. She cannot be free. Lady Baby Deer may be rebellious and cut simply the wire that makes her a prisoner, but she feels ugly and the world is not ready for her. Liberty is so near to her, but she just wants to be blind, in her lonely world and crying just for herself.”

Card Meaning

A young girl from the freak show, the antlered “Deer Girl” sits alone, chained away from the circus tent and the paying public. Eight swords hang from her antlers, designed to restrict her movement. The same wire that fixes these has been sewn through her eyes, making her unable to see. Her hands are free, and she has stolen a pair of scissors, allowing her to cut her ties, but she doesn’t. In front of her is a smashed mirror – having opened one of her eyes, she is horrified at what she sees, and chooses to remain bound.

This card reminds us that no matter how trapped we feel, it is always possible to change our situation. We may feel that there are no options open to us, but there is always a way out, if only we can push past the self-imposed restrictions.

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Thursday, January 19, 2017

Posted on Updated on

Thankfully, it has been a while since we have seen this card, but I am not surprised to have it come out now. As the Sun enters Aquarius today, you may be ready to change your way of thinking. The time has come to step outside of the box and look for a new approach, where you may have previously thought there was no solution available. 

For as long as I can remember, whenever I would see this card, I would always say, “the only one who can stop you is you”. This holds true now, and you are only limited by your imagination and your ability to open your eyes to the possibilities which are around you.

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Saturday, October 29, 2016

Posted on Updated on

There must be some way outta here! How many times have we seen this card? It used to hold the record for most appearances and every time it showed up there was a feeling of being powerless. The time has come to turn those tables!

It would appear our creepy looking ogre has decided to set you free. Sometimes that’s just the way things happen. Suddenly you can break out and be free from an issue which seems to have held you back for far too long. The world outside that glass jar is vastly different, so you will need to give careful consideration to your next move.

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Saturday, June 4, 2016

Posted on Updated on

Happy New Moon in Gemini, everyone! Wow, there is so much going on, isn’t there? And, our overplayed 8 of Swords card has now returned after a two-month hiatus. Personally, I was hoping it had taken a permanent leave of absence, but I realize this would not be realistic. So, what does it mean for everyone this time?

I actually feel this is a good sign today, in that I believe all of you are ready to untie your hands once and for all. It is time to break free from the situations which have held you back far too long. For so many, there was not enough clarity to break free, and the solutions to certain problems were not visible, so while you were free to move along from your issues, you basically had no idea how to achieve this. It would appear solutions are finally at hand, and you may feel like the hero tied to the chair who ultimately performs a stealthy escape and saves the day. Yes, I love when the good guys win! So, go untie and untangle yourselves and get out there and make good use of this most powerful and auspicious New Moon.

See you here tomorrow!

Thanks in advance for your share!❤️

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Posted on Updated on

We see this card so often, but finally I think it has run its course for many of you. Box? What box? No longer are you willing to be confined by thoughts or actions, you are taking the steps to actually break out of that uncomfortable prison that was yours for so long. Truly the sky is the limit.

I love the fact that so many of you are working on taking the necessary steps to regain control of your life. The impositions of the Universe cannot hold you back any longer. Free yourself and prepare to move forward. This is exciting!

See you here tomorrow!

Thanks in advance for your share!❤️
