Key Meanings: Restriction.

The Eight of Swords is a card of self-imposed limitations, feeling trap, bounded, unable to see clearly. This may be due to a series of bad luck and experiences, and you begin to wonder if things will ever improve.

This is a time when maybe you have been feeling like you are tied down and it is too heavy. You feel like you are out of choices, and you don’t know what to do. This feeling is overwhelming and paralysing you, like you cannot breathe.

The Eight of Swords is here to remind you that you can release yourself from these bonds, but it will take determination, and you may need to swallow your pride and ask others for support and advice.

This card also speaks of a time for action, the Eight of Swords is telling you to get up and get to work. You have everything you need within. Remember?

You are an infinite being and there are no limitations! It is time for you to get up and ask your guides for help. They are with you!
