Eight of Swords and Five of Cups combo interpretation

Eight of swords and Five of cups combination gives a hint about a major event in your future, which is influenced by the tarot forces of (I) SELF-IMPOSED RESTRICTION (from Eight of swords) and (II) PESSIMISM. Take a few deep breaths and understand that everything will be okay. Your head has been a tough place to be lately, hasn’t it? It appears you have been telling yourself and leading yourself to believe that things are just horrible, and they will continue to be that way. This is far from the truth. Things are fine and they will be even better if you stop being so pessimistic. Your cards suggest that one of the main reasons why you have slowly begun to adopt a pessimistic approach to your thinking is because you are way too hard on yourself, and you have imposed many restrictions all by yourself. Pay attention to those around you and you will see how they are already proud of you and think highly of you just the way you are. So stop putting more and more restrictions on yourself in belief that, in this way, you are becoming a better person. You are hurting yourself and it has caused your thoughts to become negative. You may benefit from taking some time off to relax and coming back to your work with a fresh mindset.

What’s the meaning of this combo for love and relationships?

Oh my dear, I can see that you are feeling so trapped and isolated in your love life. The Eight of Swords and Five of Cups combination is a tough pill to swallow, but let me tell you this – everything will be okay. You have been telling yourself these negative thoughts for far too long now, my love. It’s time to take a step back and realize that maybe the restrictions you’ve placed on yourself are causing more harm than good.

The Eight of Swords suggests that you may feel like a victim in your relationships or even anxious about making any decisions regarding them. This internalized fear can create confusion and helplessness within yourself as well as with your partner(s). It’s important to communicate openly and honestly with each other before things become stagnant or isolating between the two of you.

But don’t worry if it feels like things aren’t turning out how you expected them to because the Five of Cups reminds us that disappointment is just a part of life sometimes. Take some time for self-reflection and understand what it is exactly that YOU want in life, especially when it comes to romantic relationships. Don’t jump into anything out of desperation or loneliness – use this time alone as an opportunity to get to know yourself better.

Overall, while this combination may not seem favorable at first glance, there is hope yet! Remember: acknowledge your feelings, communicate openly with those around you (especially your partner), set reasonable expectations for yourself, *and most importantly – move forward towards finding peace within yourself first before seeking it from others.*
