That card...

(This was on Wednesday)
During the critique on my 3-D design class (the one for the "box as a metaphor of self" assignment) something happened. Something weird.

One of the boxes had a stack of tarot cards and the girl said that she was interested in that, that it was fun. Well... when we were passing the box around for everyone to see (cause it was not very big) it got to me and I don't know why but I decided to take just half the stack of cards to see what card I'd get (cause she said that it just happened that when she did that the card on top was "the lovers" and that it fit her box because her box was in the shape of a heart)... well I got a creepy card. It didn't say anything, most of the other ones had titles or something, but no the one I got... nooooooooooo, it had to be something that'd get under my skin. It was a lady that was blind folded and was tied around with something that looked like fabric, she was surrounded by 8 swords. When I did that I looked at my friend next to me and said "well, that doesn't look good" and she looked at me funny. When the other girl got to her sit I asked her what it meant (I had kept the card) and she just looked at me and said "That's not a good card." Of course that scared me out a little, my friend was giggling... I bet it was because of the expression on my face.

I don't even want to know what it means.

But my car broke down yesterday.

Do you feel like the "lady" in the cards?
Te sientes "amarrada"?
Alot of things being thrown at you?
You not knowing how to complete your tasks?
*School!! Homework!! Thinking of what "life" throws you?

No te alteres de las tarjetas... Ten fé en Dios.

This may help:

In readings, the Eight of Swords is often a sign that you are heading toward (or already in) a situation in which you will feel a lack of freedom and choice. Such situations are tricky because the more you get into them, the more restricted you feel. At each step, your options seem to narrow until you feel completely stuck.

When you see this card, remember that you do have choices, and you do have power. No matter how trapped you feel, you can find a way out if you believe it is possible. The young girl in the picture could free herself. She could wriggle free, tear off the blindfold, and kick down those swords. Solutions are not always easy, but they exist. Find your clarity of thought and purpose (the Swords ideal) and use them to take that first step toward home.
