Never give up on yourself because you deserve limitless joy.

Eight of Swords

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

The eight swords surrounding the woman represent the limitations that keep us trapped. However, if you remove your blindfolds, you will soon discover that we can break free of our mental prisons by changing our thinking. Give credit to your intuition and let it guide you.

Eight of Swords can represent feelings of confinement, restriction, fear, anxiety, and psychological issues, especially if the cups are broken. Yet, this is a moment of hope, optimism, love, pleasure, joy, freedom, and inspiration.

You may be in danger of going through a dilemma. However, the overall message is you are finding yourself in a situation because of your negative thoughts, which is letting yourself down. Therefore, you can choose to change your perspective and get out of this situation.

The swords depicted hold you back, but you can take them away and move forward. This also represents judgment and consequences that sometimes take the form of punishment.

Don't Surrender

You may feel powerless because you believe you cannot change what is happening around you. You may feel like there is nothing you can do about it. Your lack of control could be due to external factors, such as bad luck, or internal factors, such as fear.

However, when you surrender your power to an unknown entity—fate, God, the government, or something else—you're giving away your sense of responsibility.

Giving up your power to someone else is not always bad. If you surrender your energy to a higher power, like God, you will be free from the consequences of your actions. However, you may get what you deserve when you give up your passion or energy to someone you don't trust.

Surrendering yourself to fate is dangerous because you don't know what lies ahead. Some people think that abandoning destiny is a good idea, but there are many examples of people who surrendered themselves to fate and ended up suffering greatly.

Always giving the government credit is equally dangerous because you don't know your rights and could lose everything.

Uprighting is when you stop letting someone define your worth. You become empowered enough to choose what you want out of life. You can create a career that fits you. You feel safe enough to explore other options.

Do What Feels Right

You may find yourself stuck in a bind with no future. Or you're stuck in a monotonous relationship. You'll feel like you can't get out of it. But remember, you always have options.

There are ways to change your life, and relationships often start and end just because we think they should. Don't let people dictate every decision you make because it is a bad habit. Listen to your emotions and your feelings, don't ignore them anymore.

You really do have the ability to change your situation. You have permission to quit your job if you hate it. If you are unsatisfied with your pay, you can request a raise. You can start looking for a new career if you feel your life is going nowhere. Don't let fear hold you back from making life changes.

The eight swords show you that you need to trust your intuition. When you feel stuck in your life, it might be time to reevaluate what is important to you. Give credit to your intuition because it is an excellent tool for self-discovery, and it is up to you to listen to it. Don't let others influence your choices because they think they know what is best for you.

You may feel that giving up is the best option when facing difficult times. This is the time you have to start trusting your intuition. Be courageous, and don't let fear take over your life.
