Your Chosen Card – Eight of Dynamism Upright Mage Deck
When upright, the Eight of Swords suggests that you are feeling trapped or hemmed in by circumstances. Some of these restrictions may be of your own making and others may be due to the interference of unforeseen events. You tend to over-think situations and to inhibit yourself though limiting beliefs, excessive self-blame, or surrendering your power to others. You may be suffering from the paralysis of analysis. Now is the time to take off your blindfold and take a good look around you. Freedom is within your grasp. Consider the words of poet Richard Lovelace (1642): ‘Stone walls do not a prison make nor iron bars a cage.’
Keywords Upright: Confronting self-imposed limitations, freeing yourself of restrictive beliefs and oppressive self-criticism, overcoming interference, clearing obstacles that hem you in, liberating yourself from a situation in which you feel censured or trapped.
