    Eight of Swords Description

    The raven is a symbol of freedom of thought and wild ideas and the serpent or snake is a symbol of negative thoughts that ensnare and restrict movement.

    The raven entangled by the snake symbolizes how trapped a person is in a particular situation.

    Even if the raven wants to fly away, it is surrounded by sharp swords, and could be struck down easily with just one move.

    NOTE: The Tarot card meaning description is based on the Rider Waite cards.

    Tridevia Tarot Deck is designed with 156 beautifully crafted positive affirmations in our guidebook ,uniquely aligned to both upright and reversed meanings of each card, to not only guide your readings but also help you manifest your dreams and awaken the divine Goddess within you.

    Upright Eight of Swords Meaning

    You might feel strapped inside your own head. Anxiety and negative emotions overwhelm you. It’s important to change your perspective and look at the bigger picture and realize that your obstacles might not be as great as they seem right now. Meditate in order not to be controlled by your own thoughts and trust your intuition - it knows where to lead you even when your mind is playing tricks on you.


    I refuse to be a prisoner of my own mind.

    Reversed Eight of Swords Meaning

    It’s time to break the pattern of negative thoughts and to step out of the victim mentality. Change your energy and focus, and soon enough you will see your life changing for the better. Don’t be too hard on yourself and trust that you’re on the right path to achieving your goals. Believing that you’re not good enough is what’s preventing you from showing your true colors and enjoying life to the fullest.


    I believe that my thoughts affect my reality so I choose the positive and nurturing ones.
