However, take care not to not rush into it. You will gain better karma if you are considerate and attentive to your inner voice.

The Magician interpretation

You have the power to achieve what you desire. Do not hesitate. Go after what you want.

You need to start by ignoring what is and think about what could be. Acknowledge the present circumstance and then be ready to move forward.

Make sure that your intentions are clear so that you are focused on what you want. Don’t be wishy-washy about it, as that will only confuse matters and make it harder to work toward the goal. Visualize what you want and make all of your actions intentional.

Everything that you do from this point forward should be moving you closer to your goal. If you encounter obstacles, challenge them and get past them. Do not let barriers discourage you. Being able to overcome them shows your strength and adversity.

Time is never guaranteed, so it is important to move toward what you want without delay. Do not overwhelm yourself by trying to do too many things at once. Make a plan to reach your goal and carry it out over time until you have experienced the success you deserve.

Eight of Swords interpretation

You are feeling trapped but be assured that there is a way out.

You may be in a situation from which you feel there is no escape; there is. Take some time to consider your options and think about where you want to be in life. Examine what you will need to do to achieve those goals.

Your current situation is not what you want, so you may need to change your thoughts and beliefs to align with new goals. Let go of anything that is holding you back and work to change your reality. Try to replace any negative thoughts you have with positive ones to change the situation and find your place in life.

The resources you need are available to you; you need to choose to use them. Open your mind to doing things you may not normally do and trying new things. Only then will you be able to change what is. Do not get so wrapped up in overthinking that you are stuck on the problem. Instead, find the best solution.

You may be feeling like a victim, but it is time to take back your power. Do what makes you happy and do what will help you to achieve your goals. Do not worry about others right now.
