The 8 of Swords indicates an “inability” to move forward in a situation. Your inner being is urging you to look at what is getting in your way. It appears that old beliefs, thoughts and patterns are interfering with your ability to see the truth in the situation. Stop and ask yourself: Are these beliefs and thoughts a reflection of your true self? And have you at anypoint in your life owned said beliefs and thoughts? If so then you must now begin the process of taking no ownership of these, and focus instead on that which you do desire to create in your life. While the negative thoughts and beliefs will attempt to do battle with you, be aware that the more you stand your ground, they will eventually dissipate as they will no longer have your “backing”.
