The Tower Interpretation
The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.
There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.
If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.
Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.
‘You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower
Eight Of Swords interpretation
The Eight Of Swords intentionally stagnates in powerlessness.
Everybody else is to blame, aren’t they? How dare they leave you tied up and blindfolded whilst they happily live their joyous lives? Of course what they have actually done, is build some sort of make shift, flimsy trap with a huge exit and tied you rather loosely. When did they do this?I’ve a sense that it wasn’t yesterday. You look as if you have been there for some time.
When others wrong us, we can do one of two things. We can break free and live the life we want without the reckless limitations of others. Or (and the option seemingly harder yet far better) is to wriggle free and walk out of the corner the placed you in as if you don’t matter. Sometimes, imprisonment is conceived by our own limited beliefs.
If you feel trapped in love, why aren’t you talking or taking action? To remain feeling so, is to set yourself low standards. If you fear changing jobs due to the ‘what ifs’ circling your mind, try changing, ‘what if if all goes wrong,’ to, ‘what if it all goes right.’ You never know. Things may slowly start turning your way.
