Do you feel as if you are fighting your way out of a box with both hands tied behind your back? Well, read on and see what the Eight of Sky has to say about that… keep in mind the card was reversed so pay attention to the reversed meaning.
Eight of Sky:
Living at the mercy of the elements, Sky Cats often find themselves in difficult circumstances. This cat has been caught in a sudden windstorm, and a falling branch has trapped him in its tangles. Panicking, he flails and thrashes at the risk of injuring himself in the process. If he only could be calm and look for an opening, he could easily escape and go on his way unharmed. Instead, he wastes energy fighting an enemy that doesn’t really exist.
The Cat’s Advice:
The situation is not as dire as you think. When you feel trapped and out of choices, stay calm and look around for a simple solution. Keep still until your fear passes. Thrashing around will only make the situation worse. Don’t let small annoyances add to your worry. Use your intelligence to find a way out.
If the card is reversed:
You are being tested, whether by others or by the universe in general. Show your ability to improvise and find innovative solutions. Consider this an initiatory experience–once you have passed the test, you will feel a great sense of achievement and self-respect, which others will recognize as well.
It doesn’t do any good to fight against change. Change is going to happen whether you are along for the ride or not. You may as well stop fighting it and hop on. Embrace it.
Until next time…
