You have the power to change bad situations.

Eight of Swords

The tarot card of the day is the Eight of Swords.

You may feel trapped or helpless in a situation, but the Eight of swords is a reminder that you always have the power to change your circumstances. If you're at a standstill, you need to get out of your own way and make some adjustments.

The blindfolded man is surrounded by swords, representing the obstacles and challenges in his life. His hands are tied behind his back, symbolizing his feelings of powerlessness.

But even though he's in a tough spot, the man has the strength to stand up and fight for himself. There's a gap right in front of him, huge enough to pass through, but he can't see through the blindfold.

Take Off the Blindfold

There is always a way forward, even if it seems impossible at the time. You only need to have some trust and be prepared to take some risks.

You have to make some changes and take charge of your life. If you are feeling trapped, take some action. You are not powerless, even if things seem hopeless.

You have been through some tough times, and you may be feeling lost, but it's time to take off the blindfold and see the situation for what it really is. The more you truly understand your circumstances, the easier it will be to find a way out.

Research Your Options

If you're feeling stuck, it's time to do some research and explore your options. Find out from those who have been where you are, what they did that worked.

Seek expert guidance, and don't be afraid to try new things. It's not hard to find help; you just need to look.

Get creative and resourceful, and you'll find a way to get out of your current situation. Think outside the box. What is the missing piece you need to find to make a change?

Sometimes the answer is right in front of you, but you can't see it because you're too close to the situation. The situation calls for a pause while we assess the big picture.

When you know exactly what's going on, it's much simpler to figure out how to get out of it.

Start Making Changes

It's time to start making some changes. Do nothing and expect the same result. Feeling stuck is a sign that you must make some adjustments and move outside your comfort zone. Put yourself out there and take some sensible risks, even if doing so fills you with fear.

To get a new outcome, you must change your current approach. Start by making small changes and work your way up to bigger ones. Plan out how you want to accomplish your goals. Establish deadlines and do all in your power to meet them.

It's more likely that you'll see progress and maintain your effort if you approach it in this way. Your efforts will pay off, but it's important to be patient.

Making lasting changes takes time and effort. But if you're willing to put in the work, you can achieve anything you want.

Let Go of the Hopeless Narrative

Though the Eight of Swords can represent feeling trapped, it's important to remember that you always have the power to change your circumstances. If you're feeling stuck, it's time to let go of the hopeless narrative and take control of your life.

You are not powerless, even if things seem unsalvageable. There is always a way out, no matter how difficult it may seem. You just need to have faith in yourself and the Universe to set things right.

Today's Suggested Action

Today, you are being asked to take some risks. Try new things, and don't be afraid to face your fears. If you want a different outcome, you must take a different approach.

Let go of the negative thoughts that are holding you back and start making some positive changes.

Say no where you could have said yes and take back some power. Stop overextending yourself.

Do one thing that scares you today. Something small, yet uncomfortable will do. This is the first step toward stepping outside of your norm and making positive changes in your life.
