Eight of Swords Tarot Card Description

On the Eight of Swords is a woman who is tied up and blindfolded. There are eight swords placed strategically around her in a way that restricts her movement as though she is in some kind of trap or jail. However, it seems as though whoever built the trap was a little lazy or hasty, leaving some open space where she could escape. But because of the blindfold preventing the woman from seeing, she has no way of finding her way out of this trap. The barren land around her might signify a lack of creativity of some sort, while the grey sky in the background can signify despair, since there she feels that there is no hope of her breaking free from the kind of situation that she is bound to. If only she could take the blindfold off, she would see that she could simply just walk out of this situation.

Crossroads

Since ancient times it has been considered that crossroads are very powerful places. They are often used for magic procedures. The crossroads also symbolize the crossed spears. Nevertheless, in spite of its mystery the fallen rune Crossroad doesn’t mean something bad. It only hints that you are on the way to choose as you are standing on the crossroads. And only you can decide what way to choose. You shall take much pain to analyze everything, make a decision and listen to your mind and intuition.

Ogham

From thepeculiarbrunette.com

Nion or Nin

Pronunciation – Nee-uhn

Tree Association – ash

Meaning – transitions, renewal, the strength of women, growth, peace, supportive friendships, and fate. Struggle and challenges are a natural part of life and are imperative when evolving or growing, and it’s essential to accept this truth. Nin symbolizes the coming together of friends, families, and communities for a positive purpose. Ash is also representative of fate, but this does not mean you are bound to a particular course but indicates a unique path that is specific to you. Boundaries are not a disadvantage because they can help make us aware of connections, links, and develop creative solutions. Create the life you most desire with zeal and confidence!

If reversed – A need for assertiveness and control of your life. If you find yourself suffering, locate the root of the problem. It might be a good time for shadow work. Consider delaying any action, so you have time to contemplate and potentially change your perspective entirely.

Inscription and Magical Uses – Wonderful for manifesting your desires and intentions. Use for help with imagination, creativity, new perspectives, and spiritual and emotional healing.

Folklore – In some Celtic magic, a branch of Ash is traditionally used to make a magical staff or wand. They are frequently carved with spirals and considered very sacred.
