Card imagery from The Light Seer’s Tarot by Chris-Anne
Feeling trapped, restricted, anxious, paralysed by fear, backed into a corner? Just some of the words and phrases that describe the 8 of Swords.
Amazing how the universe works that I should be lead to pick this card for today. For many, this card is their current reality. But, what I love about this card is that much of the fear is self imposed. Now, I am NOT saying that we are making this up, what I am saying is that we are overwhelmed by a situation because we feel we no longer have control. Someone else is pulling the strings.
The reality of this card is that we can take back control by accepting the current situation, sit down calmly, reassess the situation and make new decisions as a means of moving forward.
Yes, our familiar surrounds may be changed, our choices may be limited but you are the creator of your own happiness, your own outlook on life and, despite what is happening in our world, you still have your literal freedom and internal power.
We all need a lesson in changing our mindset. Rather than focusing on what we don’t have or can’t do, look at what we do have and what we can do.
You still have choices. Use them to enrich all area of your life.
Have a great day everyone xx
