Game of Thrones Tarot/Enchanted Spell Oracle
Eight of Swords
Ahhh the stabby thoughts card. This card shows us what happens when we overthink ALL THE THINGS and sort of stall ourselves out - getting overwhelmed by the hamster wheel in our heads. When thoughts get that hectic we often can't see the way out of whatever we are stuck in, but there is a way out! Try looking at your situation from a different perspective - don't become incapacitated by overthinking, instead, open your eyes and clearly see what is happening and then you will find the path forward!
I LOVE how this card actually describes Brienne of Tarth in the 8 of swords card. In Gaelic are the words, Brave Warrior - and that is Brienne to a T. When this card comes to us it's time to look at the energies we let into our lives. Some people just have the ability to suck all the life out of us, or drag us down into the Debbie Downer Depths of Despair. (nice alliteration!) So be sure to set boundaries, say no when you need to and don't feel bad about it either. Walking away from a negative situation keeps your positive energy shiny!
So today, set some boundaries for yourself. If you are overwhelmed with too many stabby thoughts or stabby people for that matter, put your foot down and walk away from it. There is a way out of the negative morass but it may be hard to see at times. But it is there! Keep your energy up and the stabby things out!
