8 of Swords

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Monday, November 13, 2017

Posted on Updated on

You know I always hear music in my head. ‘All Along the Watchtower’, a Jimi Hendrix classic,  starts with… “There must be some kind of way outta here, said the joker to the thief; There’s too much confusion; I can’t get no relief. Certainly, these words ring true for many, and finally the time has come to find that way out. The planets have  been aligning in ways to help make this happen. On the 11th, we had the final Saturn-Uranus trine, bringing you the rewards for all of those lessons learned. And today, we have a wonderful Venus-Jupiter conjunction, bringing love and expansion to all things love and money.

It is as though that trapped feeling, like prison bars parting, and you being able to wiggle through easily, has finally happened. Much progress has been made lately, and solutions which were not previously available to you, have found their way to your doorstep. Truly, you are finding your way out, and it has been a long time coming. Before the month is over, you will indeed find yourself breathing a sigh of relief, and giving yourself a much-deserved pat on the back for a job well done.

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Thursday, October 5, 2017

Posted on Updated on

Full Moon blessings to all! Today is the annual Full Moon in Aries; it brings with it both endings and beginnings. When I first started this blog, the 8 of Swords was hands down the most frequent card we would see. I figure this was with good reason, since it is so representative of the feeling of thinking you are trapped, or stuck, in a certain issue you can not solve.

Things are changing now, and the time is here to open your eyes and to discover the solution(s) which will actually work. It is not that you haven’t tried, but you were previously not open to the resolution you were seeking. From this point forward, you will find that you can let go, so that you can begin totally fresh. The answers are available to you, and may require a little unorthodox, out-of-the box thinking, but you’ve got this. It is time to break out and to be stuck no more!

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Saturday, August 12, 2017

Posted on Updated on

This card was once the most frequent Card of the Day on the blog, not so much anymore. But, when the 8 of Swords shows up, its greatest representation is that of feeling trapped by a particular situation. Funny, the timing of this card today, with Mercury going retrograde, I normally tend to view many cards in an opposite fashion.

Yesterday, we had the breakout mode of the Tower, and I felt it was overall a good Tower, allowing you to spring into action and accomplish something. So, it would appear that today, you are no longer feeling so trapped by this lingering situation. You may actually feel as though the solutions necessary to overcome it are beginning to present themselves to you. It is certainly about time, but I am not at all surprised as the energy between eclipses is very powerful and is capable of exacting changes in the Universe far and wide. Take a good look around today; the solutions exist. You may not be able to solve the problems of the world all in one day, but maintaining a thinking-out-of-the-box attitude can take you very far at this time.

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.
