8 of Swords Description

The Eight of Swords depicts a woman bound and blindfolded. There are eight swords strategically placed around her so as to restrict her movement, as if she were in some kind of trap or prison. However, it seems that whoever built the trap was a bit lazy or hasty, leaving an open space where the woman could escape. But because of the blindfold that prevents the woman from seeing, she has no way to find her way out of this trap. The barren land surrounding her could signify some sort of lack of creativity, while the gray sky in the background could signify despair, as the woman feels that there is no hope of breaking free from the situation she is bound to. If only she could remove the blindfold, she would see that she could simply get out of this situation.

The general meaning of the Eight of Swords is the feeling of being trapped and victimized. You may feel powerless because, in your mind, you feel that changing the situation might be beyond you. This feeling of powerlessness, the feeling that you have no power in your life, has played an important role in making your situation worse.

Surrendering your power to an unknown entity, whether it is fate, God, government or something else, means giving up your personal responsibility to change things.

Surrendering your power to an unknown entity, be it fate, God, government or something else, means giving up your personal responsibility to affect change. You have voluntarily relinquished the driver’s seat in your life’s journey, and it is not going well for you. It is advisable to avoid making a major decision at this time, as your judgment is probably clouded.

The good news is that since these traps are created by ourselves, we can also get out of them if we put our minds to it. It is simply a matter of removing the blindfold and seeing beyond the limited perspective we have created for ourselves, seeing the possibilities and recognizing that you have your own internal power.

8 of Swords Reversed
Tarot Card Meaning

Getting the Eight of Swords reversed is a good sign because it indicates maturity and self-acceptance as well as recognition of one’s power and responsibility, especially after a long struggle of self-doubt. It means that you are able to make informed decisions because you have confidence in who you are and in your power to affect change both in yourself and in the world. It is a time to shed the past and proverbially empty the closet, making room for new things and experiences.
