Hi Mojo Twin 2,

Well what do you know? I've never seen the similarity between these two cards before but I've now got them both in front of me and you're absolutely right.

Both cards are at night, in the woods, both cards have a 'doorway' in the foreground; of trees in the case of The High Priestess and of trees and swords in the 8 of Swords.

The big difference is in the stance of the women on the cards.. Whilst The High Priestess has her arms raised and is naked and free looking, the lady on the 8 of Swords is bound and blindfolded.

I love the insight you got from looking at the two cards together too.
Thanks for sharing .

Edited to add images of the two cards:
