Tarot Card of the Day: Eight of Swords

With the moon in Libra, today is a day where you just want to let bygones be bygones. If anyone wants to argue, you’ll probably just let them win. Maybe you feel tired and just don’t want to fight or maybe you just want to remain peaceful for your own sanity.

Whatever the case may be, the Eight of Swords reminds us that if we don’t speak our mind and say what we feel when the time comes to defend ourselves, we will feel trapped in our own heads and will become afraid of saying or thinking anything.

Stop second-guessing every thought or word and just say what you feel. Keeping the peace only works when you are wrong. If you feel you are right, then you have to speak up. Maybe it will even lead to more respect from the person you stand up to.
