The main theme of the Eight of Swords is one of interference.

It may be that we are self-sabotaging, or it may be the result of an attack or betrayal.

The Eight of Swords is a card that can represent either a self-imposed or an externally imposed cruelty.

This may be an actual physical confinement, or it may be a more metaphorical prison of the mind.

The card may also indicate a situation in which we feel trapped, or in which we have painted ourselves into a corner.
