Game of Thrones Tarot/Hedgewitch Botanical Oracle
Eight of Swords
This is a card of heavy thoughts. The more swords, the more overthinking we tend to do. When this card shows up we may be feeling forced to fulfill obligations or conform to an ideal that isn't how we want or see ourselves. This can leave us feeling incapacitated and unable to see things clearly. The best thing to do is to try to see things from another perspective - get those unruly thoughts in order and the clarity will return.
I love this card! Hollyhock is such a great plant. All of it is edible and it is used in many folk medicine traditions as well. The oracle property of Abundance is perfect for this plant, food, medicine as well as shelter for hummingbirds and beetles and moths too. This abundance can relate to money or physical possessions but mostly it refers to health and happiness, community and well-being. It is by accepting what we have and not what we think we need and it also speaks to being of service to the community around you. Living a positive life with gratitude will attract so much goodness and abundance!
So today, if your mind is running around like a hamster on its wheel - try to find clarity in the mess by slowing your thoughts down and seeing them one at a time. Looking at them with a rational mind can bring a new perspective. Also remember all of the things you do have in your life and that you are only being held back by the renegade thoughts in your head, which can often be very misleading. Stay positive and honor yourself - you are worth it!
