Card Of The Month, March: 8 of Swords

The 8 of swords is the card for March 2018. This card asks you to step out of the situation that you find yourself in at present. For some it can be a reality check. This card presents itself when we are feeling restricted, confused or feeling powerless, usually caused by our own actions.

Always remember you are not powerless, you do have choices (yes sometimes the choices may be limited, so think carefully).
Notice the girl in the cards is surrounded by swords. However the swords are not in front of her blocking her way forward. There are also gaps between the swords, giving her wriggle room to escape her current situation. She must remove the self-imposed blindfold and binds. Only then will she be able to set herself free.

The key words for this card are, restricted, confused and powerless.
Notice also the water in front of her representing the mind.

The number 8 on this card first of all reminds me of the lemniscate or infinity symbol. Number 8 meanings can be both   temporal (physical world) and spiritual. Not being a numerologist myself, I can only give you a basic outline
of the number 8. Such as it can relate to money, power and it can relate to balance.  It is a karmic number so it can create or destroy.

Tread carefully if you are a number 8 person, such as your birth number or your name ads up to an 8.  Best stay honest and avoid harsh lessons in life.
