Eight of Swords - Tarot Card Meanings
Keywords: restriction, limitation, stuck, bound, isolation

General meaning: An inability to move forward. Things have come to a standstill.  Self-imposed prison.  Being in a position where you are unable to do a thing.  Stuck with your current circumstances.  Not in control.  Getting caught in your shit. Feeling cut off from others. Unable to see the way out of a predicament. What have you gotten yourself into?  Answers lie within.

Reversed: Liberation at last!  Release.  Ties are cut.  Rising above your limits.  Seeing the way out.  Mental breakthroughs.  Getting yourself out of a sticky situation.  No restraint.  Escape.  Freedom to move about and do what you want. The Eight of Swords reversed indicates freedom.

Affirmation:  I am always able to find a way.

Theme song:  “Man in the Box” by Alice in Chains

Journaling prompt: What limits are you currently placing on yourself?  How can you move through those restraints?  Journal about your exit plan, yo.

Rap:

You got in a jam
And you can’t get out
Sit for a minute
Don’t fuss about
You can’t see straight
So wait a bit
You’ll know when
It’s safe to split.

Blessings,
Theresa
