The 8 of Swords came up for me in the 'Advice' position as a reminder to cut the negative internal dialogue and stop holding myself back. Maybe it will help me if I think about the idea that it's not affecting only me standing here, but also the person who is waiting for me at the other end.
I totally agree.
I love this card it's beautiful.
A little while ago it came up quite a bit. Then it disappeared for a while and today it returned, in the advice spot.
Did those 3 little birds just appear on this card today? They are as plain as day, but I swear I have not seen them before?!?!
I'm blown away, I've stared at this card heaps, studied the gate, enjoyed the awesome peacefulness of the scene.
But I haven't noticed those 3 birds until now. And they make so much sense to me as a key for me opening this gate! (Not that's its locked, its a matter of changing my perception.) These 3 little birds were probably there all the time, but I'm only now ready to understand their message. Not yesterday. Today.
And there it is.
