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.
She keeps looking herself in the mirror but she doesn't see - True beauty comes from within.

She could be free. She could live and let live. Instead, the love and admiration she seeks escapes her because she is trying to force it by magic and artifice. She is trapped inside her mind, surrounded by minions who do her bidding out of fear and not  out of love.
