4 of Disks - Seven years would be insufficient...

“It is not time or opportunity that is to determine intimacy;—it is disposition alone. Seven years would be insufficient to make some people acquainted with each other, and seven days are more than enough for others.” ― Jane Austen

The natural inclination of a 4 of Disks (Sun in Capricorn) type person is to choose to protect himself from intimacy. This is a card of strict personal boundaries and walls for self-protection that have been fortified many times over.

Pressure pushing down on me

The 8 of Swords - How we screw ourselves over

“To crooked eyes truth may wear a wry face” ― J.R.R. Tolkien

The Evil Queen from Snow White makes a perfect 8 of Swords archetype because she is someone who screws herself over by allowing negativity and reactive behaviour to blind her to the truth.

The Tower - Thunder and Lightning, Very Very Frightening

“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.” ― Oscar Wilde
It could be argued that sex is about love but if the Tower spoke about sex, it would be in terms of Power. This is a purely, 100% male perspective, speaking from a place of too much testosterone rather than from the heart.

Builder of Disks - Master of Manifestation

“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.

Ace of Swords - New thought

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” ― Albert Einstein

The Ace of Swords represents the potential, or seed form, of the Element of Air. The essence of this card is not easy to capture in an image and the card you see here is my second attempt. The overlay is an image of the Archangel Michael, holding the scales of judgment.
