Family, Friends & Relationships:
In general, The reversed Eight of Swords tells us that although it is time to move forward, that we cannot plan or be utterly prepared for everything in life that might happen, and that accepting that fact is an important part of adulthood. Know that when we need help, help is always available. Take one step at time. Worry solves and changes nothing.
Card Meanings: Healing, Oppression, Standing Up To Abuse, Paralysis, Escape, Finding Solutions/ Options, Hopeful, End Of Punishment, Relaxation, New Beginnings, Freedom, Overcome Obstacles, Release, Relief, Prison Release, Facing Fears/ Truth, Releasing Anxiety, Clear Mind, Empowered, Severe Depression, Survivor, Mental Strength, Self-Belief, Taking Control
When the Eight of Swords appears, you may be holding yourself back because you fear moving into the future, or because you are wary of getting hurt by a new situation, or maybe for no reason at all. Think through what it is that you’re afraid of. The truth of the situations are probably much less frightening than your mind is making it out to be.

Angel Insights : Your guardian angels already know the flight plan of your life, as it was laid out before your birth, just like your soul is already aware of many of the sorrows, challenges, accomplishments, and joys you will experience here on earth. Your guardian angels have agreed to stay with you during all of these predestined events as well as see you through the wild-card aspects of your life, which are undecided and in constant flux. Your guardian angels will help you face any foe, walk through any fear, and savor all the joy and pleasure in life. They will never leave you, no matter how grave the danger, just as they will never decide that your life is going so well that you simply dont need them anymore. They are in it for better or worse.
Angel Encyclopedia: One of the FALLEN ANGELS and 72 spirits of SOLOMON. Of Syrian origin (according to Voltaire), Astaroth is a demonized version of the goddess Astarte. In Jewish lore, Astaroth was one of the SERAPHIM and a PRINCE of THRONES prior to his fall. In HELL, according to demonologist JOHANN WEYER, he reigns as a ‘grandduke.’ He commands 40 legions of demons and serves as great treasurer. According to the LEMEGETON, he appears either as a ‘foul angel’ or a ‘beautiful angel’ who rides a dragon and holds a viper in his right hand. His breath stinks so badly that a magician must use his magic ring to defend his face. Astaroth will give true answers to questions about the past, present, and future. He discovers secrets and is skilled in liberal sciences. He encourages slothfulness and laziness. Astaroth believes he was punished unjustly by God, and that someday he will be restored to his rightful place in heaven.

Tarot Triumphs: 2 If you want to go further into the craft of story writing and editing, there are many good books available on the subject. For writing up your own memoirs, and a general approach to life writing, see my book Your Life, Your Story: Writing Your Life Story for Family and Friends (London: Piatkus, 2010). There is also another writing manual that I’ve come across that uses Tarot cards for writing exercises: Cathy Birch, Awaken the Writer Within: A Sourcebook for Releasing Your Creativity and Finding Your True Writer’s Voice (Oxford: How To Books, 2005) 436.
