Eight of Swords
The crow is caught in a cage of swords and wrapped in a long red ribbon or tape that represent her limiting self-beliefs. She is a prisoner, powerless due to a lack of vision or ability to break free from her self-imposed cage. The Eight of Swords is a message to take back your power by looking at your situation or problem from a different angle. The Eight of Swords denotes a challenge due to restrictions that appear to be overwhelming or beyond your capabilities. You have the power to overcome any problem, the Eight of Swords asks that you look inward to discover the potential within.
Reversed, the Eight of Swords indicates a time of hardship is ending, and as a result, you have learned lessons needed that will help you manage future challenges.
