An intelligent figure, the King of Swords presides over mortality and serves as a benevolent and ethical judge who doles out Justice.  The King of Swords serves in the military and makes life or death decisions as a function of his role as a leader.  He wields authority and commands power.  The King of Swords specializes in strategy, logic, and reason.  When he lands in a spread, take it as a signal to cultivate integrity, solutions, and fairness.  When reversed, expect cruelty and sadism.

Adorned in a robe of clouds, the Queen of Swords sits on a throne of butterflies and angels.  She reaches out with her left hand representing the feminine, but remains guarded with her right, the masculine.  The Queen of Swords has endured suffering.  She emanates sorrow and mourning stemming from loss or separation.  Despite her suffering, the Queen still finds humor and irony in life.  Difficult to manipulate, her incisive wit slices through the fluff.  When she pops up, get direct, honest, and realistic.

The Knight of Swords rides with a pure heart and noble air.  Intelligent, discerning, and firmly direct, rely on the Knight of Swords for his reasoning backed by bravery.  The worst qualities from the dark side of this card include arrogance, dominance, and extravagance.  When the Knight of Swords surfaces, ask yourself if you could benefit from a little more directness and honesty?  Sometimes it is best to lay the proverbial cards on the table.  In the alternative, maybe your communications could use a sprinkle of love, and you come off too blunt, intolerant, and critical?  To embody the true essence of The Knight of Swords, strike a balance where truth and compassion happily coexist.

Arguably, the Page of Swords singly represents the suit of Swords better than any other card in the deck.  Generally speaking, Swords are associated with air and masculine energy.  The Page of Swords holds both these powers within its four corners.  Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, this one is for you.  The wind blows through the trees and whips the Page’s hair.  His challenging journey evokes travel, thereby touching on another central theme in Swords.  This card depicts action.  He looks out for his enemies and remains vigilant and observant.  Now is the time to take authority and oversee.

After a long slow descent, we’ve reached rock fucking bottom with Ten Swords stabbing us in the back.  This card signals the pit of despair accompanied by pain, sadness, and tears.  Just when you really want to feel sorry for yourself – don’t.  Life has a way of slinging another layer of shit on top of our preexisting suffering when we sink into woe-is-me self pity.  Don’t make a bad situation worse.  Opt for genuine self-sacrifice over martyrdom.  Remember no matter how bad you think you have it, somebody else has it worse.  Keep gratitude in your heart and positive change will come.

Tuesday’s Tarot

The Nine of Swords is a card of anguish, destruction, and grief.  It is often described as a card of “utter desolation.”  There is no hurt like the depth of pain associated with this card.  Expect death, miscarriage, failure, and total despair.  No big surprise that these feelings manifest in depression, sleeplessness, and negative thought cycles.  We just can’t let go of the guilt over our perceived or actual sins.  No matter how self-destructive the inner beating, we continue to lament misdeeds.  When reversed, prepare for shame, guilt, suspicion and even imprisonment.

Tuesday’s Tarot

Here’s the bad news: the Eight of Swords brings sickness, mental unease, conflict, and slander.  This card surfaces when you feel trapped, persecuted, and blocked by obstacles.  This combination of circumstances leaves us feeling overwhelmed and powerless.  It’s tempting to slip into self-pitying victim mode.  Resist this tendency.  Remember that whether or not you can control the situation, you can always manage yourself and your reactions.  Start by exercising autonomy in this area and see if it doesn’t open up a new path to freedom.  This situation is undoubtedly bleak, albeit temporary.  Instead of an opposing bright side, when reversed the Eight of Swords brings opposition, treachery and even death.

Made a dishonorable choice lately?  The Seven of Swords is here to remind you of the bad decision.  Even with a strong moral compass, the best of us cave to greed, opportunism, and deceit on occasion.  We hope those moments go unnoticed by others, but in truth they etch away at our conscience day after day.  Perhaps the subterfuge failed which resulted in annoyance and conflict?  The Seven of Swords depicts intentional separation and a desire to fly solo.  A fine strategy in small doses, but don’t lose your integrity along the way.  Sadly, most of us need others around to keep us honest.  When flipped, words come your way either in the form of wise counsel or babbling slander.
