Get OUT of My WAY!!!

February 12, 2012: The Eight Of Swords, Haindl Tarot

This card is simply one of the most difficult cards in any deck, one of the multiples of four that does not mean "building on a foundation". Indeed, this card is more like "repeatedly failing the building inspection." Each of the swords here represents one of the four basic elements, Air/Mind, Fire/Will, Water/Emotion, and Earth/Mundania. The pillar of the tree trunk they are piercing is the representation of spirit, and the visual image is of interference on every front preventing the growth of spirit. So--take a look around and see if you can figure out where you are standing in your own way, and where might be the first place you might be able to make an opening in the barriers...
