Eight of Swords


When reversed, the Eight of Swords can represent either taking back control or advancement upon a situation of great oppression. The timing of this meaning is key. In its truest form, you’re facing your fears and are ready to heal. You have recently overcome a great obstacle, and your time of prosperity is nigh. On the other hand, this position symbolizes that you are about to walk a very turbulent path or are surrendering to the pressure around you. Do not despair. You’ve come so far, and you’ve done more good than you might yet think. This path you’re about to set on is merely a bump in your path, and once it passes, you will come out stronger than ever. Regardless of its timing, now is the best time to ask for help so that you can move forward in a healthy and productive fashion.
