Open to new and fresh perspectives
The card, eight of the swords shows a woman who is tied up in a blindfolded manner and she is surrounded by swords which act somewhat like a kind of enclosure or a prison. It also mentions that there is no possibility to escape from such a circumstance. She also continues to appear in an isolated place where she is found to stand alone in the midst of the barrel and watery wasteland that lived far away from the town in some distant land. The sky seems to be grey and cloudy that in turn resembles the availability of a clear indication of despair along with a situation that has been lacking hope in some way or the other. The woman’s feet are found not to touch the water and thus, it indicates the feeling of restriction. The eight of swords is basically meant for the purpose of resembling an intellectual assessment of the circumstance, yet the situation has got a lot more to reveal in the sense of intellectuality rather than that of the emotional ones. The blindfold prevents the woman to watch out something ahead of her situation.
