Today’s card is the Eight of Swords.
A person is bound, blindfolded, and trapped between eight swords. To move in any direction is to risk being sliced apart. However, their situation is not as dire as it seems: their bindings are already beginning to slip off of their body.
A dour card in a suit that only gets worse, the Eight of Swords signifies that you are in a situation where moving in any direction will just make things worse. Though it’s the most frustrating kind of position to be in, sometimes doing nothing is the best course of action. Our subject in the card is in quite the spot, but time will give them the help they need most. With patience, they will be freed from their predicament – but they must be patient.
