Eight of Swords

A woman stands in a harsh, icy landscape. She is blindfolded and bound, although so loosely that she could break free if she struggled. Eight swords are impaled in the ice and a stream flows swiftly past her.

My Interpretation: Bondage.

Disillusion and loss of hope. A time of difficulty. Indecision could make matters worse. Troubles ahead - illness or misfortune.

(Reversed: Hopelessness and deceit. Try to rally your strength to overcome the adversities that face you).

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've made it far more similar to the Rider-Waite card. A woman stands bound in a harsh landscape. She is only loosely tied however, and could break free if she tried.
