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!

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Sunday, March 11, 2018

Posted on Updated on

Well, hello there, 8 of Swords, it has been a while since we have seen you! This card held the record for such a long time, having the most frequent appearances here on the blog; finally, we can see that things are changing. That powerless feeling to which you succumbed for so long is shifting now, and while you have already seen things change, there has still been a thing or two which haunted you.

You are breaking out, you are finding solutions, and, while you may not see the results today, your time is coming. Either your hands, or those of someone else, have been tied up until now, but all of that is changing. Whatever it is that has had you feeling trapped for so very long is about to change. Do not be afraid to think outside of the box in order to come up with the answers; remember, they do exist.

See you here tomorrow!

Featured Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space 

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Megan Buccere

Website:  http://www.meganbuccere.com

Keywords 

Impotence, fear, isolation 

Artist Interpretation 

The Eight of Swords refers to people holding themselves back. The figurative bonds within this image, a blindfold and cage of swords, are easily escapable if you were to try. To fit in with the astral theme of this card, while portraying the main themes of the traditional card, I featured a blindfolded woman isolated and suspended in space, bound, only with golden threads that she could cut easily. The blindfold represents an inability to see a way out of the current situation.​

Card Meaning 

Against the backdrop of space, she lingers, suspended. Braided, her hair is tied away from her and eight swords dangle from her hands. Nothing is holding her in place. She is blind-folded, but nothing holds her hands…they are tangled up with the gold threads that hold the swords, but it is nothing that she could not handle. She could escape and throw aside the swords, cast off the blindfold, and right herself. But she doesn’t.

When this card appears in a reading, it is asking you a question you may not like….Why are you holding yourself back? Why are you standing in your own way? You are a prisoner of your own making, letting your worries and doubts paralyze you, our fears making you feel powerless and trapped. But nothing truly holds you where you stand….you could remove the shackles.  

You have all the power here. You don’t need to settle. You don’t need to accept the situation. Shake yourself free, and take charge of your own path. Even if it doesn’t feel like it right now – you can change the situation.

You are in control. Have faith in yourself, and believe that it’s possible.
