Step EIGHT-Two asks us to list as many metaphors for our chosen card as we can. Then, we are asked to put them into given statements. Two example statements are given:
** Inserting the metaphor into a sentence.
** Inserting a character from the card into the sentence along with an emotion or sensation that would be described by the metaphor.

RWS 5 of Swords

3 figures stand in 3 different sizes, with 3 different perspectives of the same situation. The smallest man has his face in his hands, the middle man stares out to the water, the biggest man holds 3 swords. 2 swords remain on the ground.


-sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me
(I’m all broken up, but not dead)

-every cloud has a silver lining
(This falling out is for a reason, soon to turn for the better)

-cry me a river
(I’m crying a river, but who cares)

-tomorrow’s another day
(I’m down now, but tomorrow’s another day)


It feels as if I’ve been destroyed, but here I stand, humiliated, but whole.

Will refocus and try again, I know things will get better.

To complain would do no one any good.

I know it may feel like the end of the world, but will give it some time.

At the present, I feel my life shifting. There is no evidence of it happening outside of myself, everything is effecting me internally.
I have been disheartened by recent breakup with friends, and personal relationships. I have made a conscious choice to work through these experiences and try to make the best out of what has transpired.
