The Wheel Of Forune Tarot Card Meaning

As the spiritual light and mist enshrouds the spinning wheel of fortune, two sparkling crystals remain as witnesses to its journey. Above it all soars a majestic hawk in flight, foretelling an unknown destiny awaiting us around each turn. Within every tarot reading lies potential for transformative change - whether positive or negative but nonetheless inviting further growth along life's path. The appearance of this card is our reminder that new opportunities lie ahead with transformation ever-present; ushering renewal into relationships, careers, health and spirituality alike! When you encounter the Wheel of Fortune embrace whatever awaits you – be ready for what may come next!

The Wheel of Fortune is a true embodiment of mythical power. Its tapestry weaves together various cultural symbols, from the imperial purple and white spiritual light at its core to the hawk that watches over it all - representing both caution and intelligence in one fell swoop. The crystals gazing outwards represent earth, fire, air & water; as well as balance flowing through each corner sending signs that success will be aligned with you when your wish comes alive! I love this card, and means anything is possible.

I always find that essentially drawing this card denotes that your wishes can surely be granted, but you have to know exactly what it is that you want. It does not act as a fairy god mother card, allowing anything of your wildest fantasy to come true. No, instead of this, it asserts that your desires are within your reach and the universe is conspiring to help you in your goal. Because the universe is in harmony with your desires the “how” will happen easily. However, be sure your goal is within the realm of possibility not the fairy realm. Resist the temptation to succumb to greed this luck will not last forever so you don’t want to waste it. Once you have identified what it is that you want, then the gambling side of the Wheel of Fortune comes in handy. This is a card that tells you to play your odds. Determination wins out. The law of averages speaks in your favor. The more that you perpetuate something that you want, the more likely you are to receive that very thing, even if it feels impossible. These manifestation possibilities are endless and range in subject matter; from love, to money, to success, to happiness.

When the Wheel of Fortune is transiting your reading, this means that now is the time for you to take action, because the odds are better for you than the average person. Some times in life, this is not so, but if this card is coming up as a main representative in your life then it is like having a lucky ace in your pocket, except legitimately.

The Wheel of Fortune in Love

To everything turn, turn, turn…” Relationships with others are balanced from the beginning fluttery stages to the boring ho-hum mediocrity of stagnation and even blood-boiling fights from time to time. In a healthy relationship there is cycle and nothing stays the same forever. If you haven’t experienced the changing stages of a long term relationship, then you are about to because drawing the Wheel of Fortune card says that in romance, one way or another your luck will be changing; and most of the time that change will be positive. If you happen to be one of the small percentages of people that think everything is perfect in your relationship, you may be in for a bit of a bumpy ride. The change aspect of the wheel is less dramatic than other cards in the deck, but it is there. Rather than representing an ending it is merely a shift in direction that is coming. This is also an excellent time to go into a joint venture with your partner, to begin searching for the perfect home to purchase, to begin having children or to make other big decisions that you think might be somewhat of a gamble. If you take some risks, the Wheel Of Fortune will bless you if it is meant to be.

For those seeking love, the Wheel of Fortune is a good sign indeed. If you currently have no relationship (and thus no fortune in the love department) then you have nowhere to go but up! The presence of the Wheel is a sign that there will be someone coming into your life that is new IF you remember to put yourself out there. This is not something that is going to fall in your lap, but if you make the effort the card denotes a possible relationship that could become a long lasting one.

The Wheel Of Fortune As Feelings

There is no way to predict where the wheel of fortune will take us - it spins in all directions. Our feelings about certain things can change as the wheel turns, sometimes coming full circle back to its original state. The journey of life is all about taking a chance and coming out stronger than before. We never know when the wheel may fall gently on our side, so we must let go and surrender to see what happens. Life is a wheel of fortune, and feelings are along for the ride.

The Wheel Of Fortune in Work, Money, Business, Career, and Wealth

In business, career, wealth, and work, the Wheel Of Fortune tarot card signifies good fortune and prosperity. There is a good chance that you will achieve financial success in the near future. Promotions or new job opportunities may result in this. There may be unexpected windfalls, such as winning the lottery or receiving dividends from investments or stocks. Business ventures or investments can also be successful when the Wheel Of Fortune appears. The card encourages you to take risks and to have faith that your efforts will pay off. The reversed card could be a sign of financial difficulties, especially if it appears in a tarot spread. Changing your spending habits or making financial adjustments may be necessary in this case. In all cases, the Wheel Of Fortune is a reminder that no matter what your current circumstances are, with dedication and hard work, anything is possible. 

The Wheel of Fortune tarot card also reminds us to stay humble and grateful for what we have. In this card, we are encouraged to appreciate life's blessings, no matter how small they may seem. Find the good in your current situation and take stock of it. Positive energy and abundance can be attracted into your life when you accept your own circumstances with gratitude. Overall, the Wheel Of Fortune tarot card indicates hope and luck in work, money, business, career, and wealth. Taking action with optimism and enthusiasm will lead to success if you remain open-minded.

The Wheel Of Fortune Tarot Card As Love Reconciliation

Relationships are cyclical - ups, downs, and all - as the Wheel of Fortune tarot card illustrates. Although breakups can be painful and heartbreaking, they also offer opportunities for growth and healing. The Wheel represents the understanding of how to take what happened in the past, learn from it, and move forward with peace and love.

It is imperative that we acknowledge that all relationships are in a continuous state of change in order to find harmony with our partners. Even if we go into a relationship with the best intentions, we cannot control its outcome. The Wheel reminds us that sometimes it takes patience and understanding to get back on track in a relationship. When relationships are damaged, it may take time and effort to repair them, but with the right care and effort, it can be done. The Wheel reminds us that new beginnings and growth are always possible, no matter what has been broken between you two.

The most important thing to remember is that with love reconciliation, you will learn more about yourself and your partner - not just how to make things work better between the two of you, but also how to understand yourself better. Greater self-awareness and a healthier relationship can result from this understanding. No matter what happens, love reconciliation is always possible according to the Wheel of Fortune tarot card.

The Wheel Of Fortune As An Action/Advice

When the Wheel of Fortune card appears in an action/advice reading, I believe it signifies you need to push for change, fortune, and destiny. You can interpret this card as either an action card or an advice card. In its action card form, the Wheel of Fortune suggests to me --- that now is the time to take action and embrace change. My advice is that no matter how uncomfortable or challenging life may be, it encourages acceptance. We can take responsibility for how we respond to life's events even when we have no control over them.

Often drawn as an advice card, the Wheel of Fortune suggests trusting your intuition and remaining open to possibilities. Taking risks and letting go of expectations are encouraged. Sometimes we do not have control over what happens in our lives, but we can still choose how we react to it. You can always find love reconciliation with the Wheel of Fortune tarot card. You can get back together if you have patience, understanding, and dedication.

Wheel of Fortune in Health

Often indicating cyclic health changes, the Wheel of Fortune card refers to things changing either for the better or the worse. Depending on your current health state the card shows that there will be a difference or change coming soon. If you are having health issues you need to be mindful of where your wheel is currently, so to speak. Consider researching the Native American Medicine Wheel. Locate where your most common ailments are and begin tackling this. A stroke of luck generally accompanies this card and usually you will notice vitality and an increase in health… however also be mindful of taking advantage of your good health and pushing your own physical or mental boundaries too far.

Wheel of Fortune in Work and Wealth

Usually when the Wheel of Fortune comes up in a work or wealth reading there is a hint of good luck and positive energies surrounding you at this time. Work and finances will come together and there is no need to make any drastic changes. You should consider continuing on with what you are doing right now and make sure to jump on any opportunities that come your way that might benefit your current circumstances. If for example you want enough money coming in that you can afford a Cherry Apple Red Jaguar, then what do you need to do? You need to keep a lookout for advertisements that describe your perfect Cherry Apple Red Jaguar and then jump on the bargain deal. Do not be afraid to take a chance, luck is on your side.

Wheel of Fortune As Advice

In the advice position, this card says what is going to happen will happen regardless. There is a focus of lack of control. It’s saying that if you are thinking about making a change just go for it. This is really the unpredictable, that as the wheel turns so does your future. Also this card can say at the moment don’t do anything right now because no action is action in itself. You need to draw another card to see where this is going. 

The Wheel Of Fortune As Yes Or No

When you draw the Wheel Of Fortune in a “Yes Or No” tarot card reading you can almost feel the divine energy radiating from its spinning wheel; relishing in the power of the universe. As you spin the wheel, you gain a little more awareness, allowing your intuition to guide you. Yes or no, the Wheel Of Fortune tarot card always brings a sense of awe and wonder.  And with it comes the knowledge of knowing that something greater is at work.  A power that can only be experienced through this special card.  So take a moment, take a spin and feel the energy flow. The Wheel Of Fortune tarot card can never give a concrete answer, so I always consider it a “maybe.”

Reversed wheel of fortune

Reversed Meaning Of Wheel Of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune in reversed represents general stagnation and the need to be more active or mobile. It can also indicate that you are in an unlucky period in your life and warns against taking unnecessary risks. This will come up if you are a perpetual gambler and is warning you that you have strained yourself and the wheel will not support you. Take a break from gambling and consider working with what you have only for a time.

As we make choices today, our future can be shaped by the Wheel of Fortune tarot card. Taking risks, understanding cycles, and trusting in the natural order are all part of the message. As a symbol of karma, the wheel reminds us that what goes around comes around - for better or for worse. The message is to accept that life is ever-changing and tumultuous, but that balance and success are always possible. As we take our place on this wheel, we pull together the threads of our lives and weave our own destiny. With patience and courage, we will come out triumphant as the wheel turns.

The Wheel of Fortune encourages us to believe in our own journey, and speaks to the need for change. We are reminded to remain flexible, open-minded, and ready to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Wheels also symbolize luck, opportunities, and infinite possibilities; they remind us to embrace life's uncertainties and trust that we will be rewarded with good fortune. Don't forget that you can be the master of your own fate. Take hold of the wheel and let it guide you to a brighter future. When good fortune is on its way but being blocked when reversed, I see the Wheel of Fortune tarot card. It might be a windfall of money, an inheritance, or just a bit of good luck. No matter how it appears, The Wheel of Fortune is a welcome sight for anyone who needs a little help.

The Emperor

 
 

The Emperor Tarot Card Meaning

The Emperor is the counterpart of the Empress, but where the Empress is care free in her abundance, the Emperor is almost strict with his own form of stability and can symbolize many different things depending on the context in which he represents himself.

If you receive this card during a general reading, then the Emperor is going to provide you with a solid, continual energy to benefit your life. He does not leave a lot of room for excess change or random behavior. The Emperor is pragmatic, regal and stately. His energy is full of action and drive, and there is no room for mistakes. This is a card of possession, domination and authority and says that currently in your life you need direction. Often the Emperor will reflect an internal compass, a card that is attempting to show you the way. To be something and to know something is entirely different then being capable of doing something. Embracing the capabilities of the Emperor assists you in understanding this level of authority. Now is a time to trust your own instincts and skills to get a much needed job done. Do not rely on others to complete what you can do yourself. Do not expect that others are going to do as good of a job as you are.

You are in a time of your life that your own limits may be tested and while you are feeling run down or underappreciated you still need to push through. There is no room for error. The Emperor points his glare at you in a reading stating that you also may be pushing others too hard. The message for the card is for you and you alone. You need to be responsible for your actions at this time and reliance on others will likely result in a disaster of some kind.

The depiction of the Emperor on the card is full of metaphorical images that will help you to assist what the role of the Emperor is in your life. He sits in a stone throne that is unyielding but efficient with the Martian ram heads signifying his masculine role with mars. He is forward momentum and drive. How can you focus more on pushing yourself forward? His beard is long, symbolizing his many years full of wisdom. Many comment on his metal shoes. One would ask why he isn’t wearing shoes that are more comfortable. The answer is simple, his shoes are an example of authority, of procedure, they are part of his uniform and that symbol is constant and never changing. You will benefit from adding this level of professionalism in your life.

The Emperor encourages us to focus on the reasoning and critically thinking mind. What is feasible and is reasonable is the world that the Emperor lives in. When you receive this card in a reading, the Emperor commands that you get rid of all form of fantasy and fill your head with the facts. Handle your affairs in a systematic way and do not encourage room for error. Anything that you can do to be responsible for the standing in your life is imperative now. The effort you put in at this time will be greatly rewarded.

Emperors are archetypal father figures and symbols of authority. As a leader, he represents action, decisiveness, and leadership. As most fathers do, he wants what's best for his children and will do whatever it takes to protect them. The Emperor, unlike other fathers, does not shy away from showing his softer side. A loving husband and devoted friend, he also cares for his family. Underneath his tough exterior lies a generous and kind heart.  A Tarot card reading with the Emperor will leave you feeling uplifted and motivated to take charge of your life if you're lucky enough to have him in your spread!

The Emperor in Love

In love, the Emperor is symbolic of monogamy, of longevity and consistency. When this card appears in your love spread you can count on being blessed with something stable and dependable coming your way. If you are already in a relationship and you are having problems, the Emperor says that you can depend on the situation to improve and to remain stable at least for the interim. Consider what he has to teach you about being a solid influence in your life and in the lives of others.

This card can be confusing if you are looking for love. For a woman looking for love it will often show an older male coming into her life and instruct her to be open to new possibilities. However, for a male seeking love it tells you that you need to be more forward in your search, be willing to share your feelings, and warns of waiting too long for the right woman. It is likely that you are holding back your feelings to a woman and now is the time to speak up before your opportunity is missed.

The Emperor As Feelings

In terms of feelings, the Emperor is king - he stands proud, a powerful and compassionate figure. If you ask for someone’s feelings and it is connected to strength and emotion, respect and understanding are associated with his feelings. As he speaks, his presence fills the air with authority. Listening to others, he experiences their stories like his own, because in his heart there is understanding. A great deal of emotion can be evoked by the Emperor in those around him. Every place he enters is filled with a special kind of feeling generated by his words that convey understanding, assurance, trust, and love. When the Emperor rises for feelings it can indicate that this person feels that you are traditional but have control over a “love” situation.

The Emperor As Love Reconciliation

In asking if someone will get back to you and pull the Emperor, for love reconciliation, then it shows that you want to fly into its wings for safety. He offers wisdom and compassion.

The Emperor in Health

When the Emperor comes up in a reading where health is mentioned, several possibilities present themselves. First, this can be a sign of good health over all, that you are well and will continue to be well. However, if this card comes up reversed regarding health, then you will want to consider the negative effects that being overly routine or constricted is having on your overall health. This could show up in tension headaches or other stress related issues. One can be too authoritarian or too rigid. The Emperor is there to teach you to bring yourself back into balance and to allow the positive influence of stability to come to your aid.

The Emperor in Work and Wealth

The Emperor in business ventures exists to show you the support in your current workplace and to bless you with up and coming possibilities that will add more stability in your life. If you are unsure that you are making the right move in your industry by accepting a promotion, the Emperor says to take the job if it will encourage longevity in the workplace. He also represents a long-term opportunity coming your way financially such as in making money off the sale of a house, inheritance, or cashing in of stocks and bonds. The positive energy in this card is very strong concerning finance and work. The Emperor has worked for what he has and with him in a reading, he brings a deal of luck and fortune through experience and reputation.

The Emperor As An Action/Advice

The Emperor is about making sure that you control what you are doing. Think of yourself  withstanding the raging winds and overcoming obstacles no-one else can. The message here is that if we trust in ourselves and open ourselves up to advice, there will never be a difficulty too great for us to overcome. This tarot card is a message to make sure that you have the strength to overcome anything. It is about taking boldness and courage from the emperor, and your journey shall have no bounds.

The Emperor As Yes Or No

The Emperor in a Yes Or No reading draws a duality that many people find difficult to comprehend. In one aspect, a dichotomy of decisions holds weight - and this is the path of 'Yes', or plunge down into darkness of 'No'? Even so, despite all the complexity, a ray of light shines through: despite its formidable appearance, all roads lead to the same place, and ultimately, decision-making depends on courage. Life often comes down to choices, not just for ourselves but also for those around us - so in a Yes Or No reading he is saying follow your heart with bravery and grace. 

The Emperor As A Person

The Emperor as a person is a gentle soul, wise and kind with a vast knowledge. A leader of great strength and ability, the Emperor had a strong sense of justice and fairness that he applied equally to all. His words were measured, succinct, and inspiring towards those in need. Through compassion and understanding, he viewed the world. It was the Emperor's individualism and commitment to rule by consensus rather than decree that made him unique among rulers. 

The Emperor In the Past Position

In my tarot card above, you can see the emperor embodies great power and radiates strength. His throne is elevated above the masses and his word became law. Every day he sits on top of the throne, surveying the land he dominates over with a gaze that would both humble. Such were the days that an emperor held reign in this ancient past; before modern society whittled such grandeur down to hardly anything more than myth.

he Emperor In the Present Position

As he stands in this current position with a heavy burden of responsibility on his shoulders, it is a strange twist of events that brought the emperor to this point in history. Despite his tendency to reign over grandiose kingdoms, he now relies on the wisdom and guidance of the people to guide him. The only way we can write a future worth dreaming about is to embrace our collective history - a future where the emperor's presence is welcomed and revered as it was centuries ago. Even though we may never know how he arrived here or what secrets lie beneath him, this majestic figure remains an inspiration to your life right now, showing perseverance can overcome even the greatest obstacles.

The Emperor In the Future/Outcome Position

Future worlds will be mysterious and wondrous, with the emperor at the center. His actions will resonate throughout generations, reaching out to souls. A day of darkness will never fall on the realm under his command because he will command such immense power. As a result, all will pay homage to him, thanking him for leading them along the righteous path that only emperors can tread. In the future, he will be omnipotent and justice will be swiftly delivered to those who deserve it. In this infinite universe, the emperor in the future will undoubtedly be a blessing for you going forward. It is a sign that you can overcome any obstacle with his help.

The Emperor As Friendship Or Family

The Emperor begins with a field where two friends and family are called to meet: One of a silver sky and the other of an amber sun. As you rejoice together and share your hearts, they bring forth an honor so pure and fleeting - friends become family. In the same way that brothers, daughters, sisters, and mothers bond, so does this friendship (if you draw the emperor). As they sit at the foot of the Emperor, their newfound family gives birth to dreams, hopes, and memories that will endure for all time.

Emperor Reversed

Reversed Emperor In A Reading

When the Emperor appears in a reading in the reversed position, there is a loss of control possible in your near future. Perhaps being overly structured has taken a toll on your existence and you have begun receiving injuries due to this lack of flowing energy. Consider taking some time off so that you may be able to get through the frustrating phase. Pay attention to paperwork and ensure that you have only trustworthy people around you. With the positive energies in the reversed position, the energies that would usually be of an aid to you can actually be a hindrance. You will likely find that you are being overconfident or rude and not knowing it. Especially in a professional sense – the reversed position does not bode well for work and finance. Do what you can to get your finances on track by setting up a budget that is reasonable and workable. Work hours that are conducive. Overworking, overbooking, and being overextended are often serious issues when the Emperor is reversed.

Love And Romance - Emperor Reversed

When the Emperor reversed is involved, romance can turn. As unflinching rulers float wildly in the air like dandelion seeds, they will become unpredictable like dandelion seeds. If you are fortunate enough to be touched by its presence, you know not to take it for granted; the whims of fate may bring it too soon or keep it away too long. There is no doubt that even through upheaval and chaos, there is room to fully express heartfelt emotion without holding back when it comes to love and romance with the Emperor reversed.

Family And Home - Emperor Reversed

Upheaval and change are associated with the Emperor reversed when it comes to your home life. Life seems to flow along in a manner that is certain and reliable when we are strong and steadfast, with our families and homes providing us with comfort and security; however, when the Emperor flips, new ideas flow freely like a river altering the course of our lives through unrestrained inspiration. It can be hard to grapple with life --- sometimes you may feel like you are no longer in control, but this new energy can help us realize our dreams and connect with parts of ourselves that were dormant previously. Our loved ones can provide a harbor in the midst of rough seas, helping us understand this energetic wind that blows through our lives.

Work and Finances - Emperor Reversed

Stability seems to come at a price. Our ambitions for security and prosperity can seem suddenly illusive when the Emperor is reversed. Despite our hard work, we may not be able to provide ourselves with financial comfort, and any successes we achieve will only last a short time. Despite the fact that it's sometimes difficult to accept that money cannot provide all that we need and desire, the Emperor is saying you should seek security in other aspects of our lives instead: family, friends, and even yourself. Despite financial constraints, please remember there is still much joy to be found in moments when we allow ourselves time to reflect on intrinsic values that make life worth living.

Health and Wellness - Emperor Reversed

In the moments when we feel our power is reversed, it may seem simpler to succumb to the weight of our challenges than to overcome them. In order to truly care for ourselves and reclaim our health and wellness, we must train ourselves to meet those challenges head on. Self-empowerment is possible when we eliminate the obstacles that stalemate our wellbeing. We can cultivate thriving self-care and strength through headstrong fortitude in times of unrest. Despite uncertainty and opposition, we can achieve the truest form of health and wellness.

Personal Spirituality - Emperor Reversed

An experience of personal spirituality can often be a difficult and intimidating journey, and when the Emperor Reversed appears in our tarot reading, it is a sign that this journey may initially go in the wrong direction. Traditionally, this reversed card represents stagnation, resistance, and a lack of control over one's own actions. In the end, however, this could be seen as a chance to accept things as they are rather than try to force them. As a result, spiritual awakening is more of an organic process than something that is forced. The idea that everything happens for “a reason” gives us comfort even when it seems we have no control over our destiny - we just have to trust fate to bring us where we are suppose to be.

The Eight of Swords

 
 

The Eight of Swords is commonly known as the card of victimization.

This means that you are currently going through a phase where you are completely bound by your circumstances. You feel as though you are not capable of getting yourself out of the destructive phase that you are in and that in fact if you were to try, devastating repercussions would follow. You fear pain and restriction, yet that which you fear is exactly what is blocking you the most. You are going through a season where you do not trust anyone and you worse you are constantly doubting your own abilities. You are perpetuating this cycle by trying to battle more than one issue at a time and that is part of what is causing you debilitating indecision.

You need to stop thinking that your emotions make up who you are entirely. Drowning in your emotions, which are as fluid as the tides, is not an appropriate way to work on your goals. The 8 of Swords can at points be harsh to take in because there is a level of personal responsibility that you must recognize on the role that you play in your own life’s miseries. The maiden that is depicted in the card is blindfolded as well as tied up. She is surrounded by swords and for all intents and purposes is indeed stuck. However on closer inspection you can see that her binds are only loosely wrapped around her, and there is a clearing in the swords behind her which would make escape possible if only she allowed herself to try. The key to this card is the lack of the desire to try, exemplifying where you are right now. You have complete control over your circumstances at this moment but you have allowed yourself to get addicted to the way things are even though the way things are causes you to be a complete stress case.

You are absolutely consumed by a victim mentality. And up until this point it was working for you. Now you are seeing the issues that can arise from this lack of decision making and a belief in your own ineptitude. It may be a way to survive, but it is most certainly not a way to live. The only opposition that is holding you back is your mental training, the habit from the practice of victimization and a certain level of blind acceptance or even ignorance to this very fact. Perhaps this was how you were raised, or you developed a habit due to a series of negative experiences, however now the 8 of Swords is giving you a warning, letting you know that it is time to improve your circumstances, and if you choose to ignore this warning, life will get worse for you.

The way out of this cycle is to balance your mind and your spirit. Recognize that you are actually an extremely creative individual who is absolutely capable of handling their life and can have anything that they want. The mind is going to open for you to include the extensions of your personal self with a partner and children as well as the necessity to widen your circle of close friends. You must stretch passed your comfort levels. The first response that you have to new situations is to close your eyes and hide because there is so much to do. But you must meet these challenges head on should you hope to escape death by swords.

The Eight of Swords in Love

When the Eight of Swords has appeared in a reading regarding love and relationships, you will find that you feel as though you are completely stuck in your situation. This card often comes up regarding the potential end of a marriage. Usually there is a deep level of unhappiness that has been going on for a long time, but the lack of deciding to leave the marriage is what creates a situation that is not easy to simply resolve. Many in love are afraid to change their circumstances because they have grown so comfortable with the unhappiness and worse, are afraid to be alone. Question yourself at this time; are you perpetuating something that makes you unhappy so that you do not have to be alone? How are you keeping yourself in chains? How are you behaving as if you are a victim? How could you better strengthen yourself and take control of your life?

The Eight of Swords in Health

The Eight of Swords in a reading about health is referencing a hypochondriac nature. That of a person who is constantly saying they are sick enough that they actually become sick. These are the people who are overindulging in medication that is prescribed by a doctor and who have a million ailments. In essence these issues that they have are self-created and self-perpetuated, and if you find yourself stuck in this kind of situation then you are going to need to learn how to live without believing that you are just a sick person.

Consider learning how to break the habit of indulging in these medicines so that you can perpetuate your own health. Some medications are important to survival, this is true, but some take medication just to dull out life. If this is you, seek substance abuse health. The Eight of Swords makes this recommendation so that you can gain control over your life before matters get worse.

The Eight of Swords in Work and Wealth

When the Eight of Swords shows up in a work and wealth reading, there is a feeling of being victimized by coworkers or supervisors. You feel as though you are entitled to have more than what you have received thus far. Sometimes you are being overlooked for promotions because there is nowhere to go in your position or money issues with the company. Other times you are being looked over because you are not working hard enough. When the Eight of Swords is influencing a work reading, the latter is more probable. If you are struggling in your work environment, consider how much time you actually spend working and see if there is a gap or you are taking too many breaks and the like. See how you can become a better employee.

The Eight of Swords in Outcome / Future Position

The eight of swords in an outcome/future position is connected to our own limitations in life. In a positive spread, the outcome can indicate that their have been emotional upheaval and that you will not give up and that you need to face the truth of the matter. There is also a focus on over-analyzing elements and this becomes a cycle of problems. In the future, it is likely that you still will not see things that you don’t wish to see. If she actually could see what has happened in the past there is no reason for her to continue. In terms of an analogy, it is telling you to open your eyes in the future to all the things that tried to hold you back. The 8 swords Reversed

Reversed Eight of Swords in a reading

The 8 of Swords reversed is blessing you with the energy of freedom. You have done the work to improve your circumstances and you are now able to take off the blindfold of victimization and you can see clearly what is going on around you. Now you can truly use all of the creative energy that you have inside of you, freely. You are able to focus on wonderful ideas that set you apart from everyone else. You are no longer backed in a corner, so make sure not to fall back in old habits. You also might be so excited by your new found freedom that you may preach too strongly this message to others and this could prove to alienate yourself. Expressing gratitude and thankfulness for your healing is one thing, trying to recruit others against their will is something else. Keep this in mind.
