The Eight of Swords signals a time when you begin to accept that part of your own philosophy has kept you down. You may have some insight about it, but are struggling to find a way to smash your chains. While this is a very challenging time for most of us, part of what is boxing you in is your own limiting beliefs. Your perceptions are not reflecting your true potential, as there are options around you. Be gentle with yourself, but firm. It’s time to release yourself from bondage and embrace a new philosophy. Relief is dependent on a mental shift. You can bust out of this.
