Eight of Swords shows a woman who is tied up and blindfolded, in the middle of a muddy puddle, surrounded by many large swords. She does not appear to be in a good position, but the swords are stuck in the ground, so she could get away if she wanted to, as she isn't being threatened.
This card represents a feeling of restriction and inability to see things for what they are, a fear of going forward.
The Eight of Swords advises you to follow the truth of your feelings. Be honest with yourself: are you really happy in this job? this relationship? amongst these friends? etc. Are you following your dreams or have you wandered off track somehow? Perhaps the dangled carrot of money or security tempted you to take a detour and now you feel lost and confused. No matter what stage you're at, commit to using all your energy, bravery and willpower now to bring you back on course. Have faith that you can find that track again, be prepared to work hard to get back on it and know that you will be grateful to yourself for having chosen it.
