Strangely, this card reminds me most of the Thoth Four of Disks, and in fact the book's description is somewhat similar. What price security? If we are so anxious about what we have that we build walls, we lock ourselves in far more than we lock others out. The author states that this is the next level up from the Four of Disks, in this deck entitled Home. Here in the Eight of Disks, it is not merely physical day-to-day security we are looking at, but also more "abstract protections such as psychic boundaries and monetary investments". The more we up the ante, the more we may lock ourselves into our anxiety.
I am grateful for the reminder to stay open to others, and to love.
