The Eight of Swords represents self-imposed restriction. Although you may feel hopelessly trapped, there is a way out, if you're willing to look at it from a different perspective. The swords don't surround you fully; there's a clear path, but the blindfold keeps you from being able to see it. Several years ago I was going through some very intense anxiety and depression, and without fail every single time I did a tarot reading this card would come up for my present!
