When I started my blog I did a bit of a ‘how to read tarot’ series. This year I thought we’d come back to that in a round about sort of way. This year I thought that I’d come back to that in a round about way. This year I thought I’d do a bit of an indepth tour of the tarot deck. I’m going to take a card or an element of the deck and go in a bit deeper on it.
This time I want to start with the suit of swords.
Swords is the suit of intellect, thoughts and beliefs. It shows a lot about your ambitions, drive and courage. Think of swords as that supportive friend encouraging you to follow your dreams or will tell you the truest of truths. There is no hiding and fucking about here!
Swords is also a very regal and masculine energy. Make no mistake that doesn’t mean blowing a gale, being forceful, and strong arming people. Air is as much as a gentle breeze as it is a hurricane but it still embodies that take charge attitude. It doesn’t want you to sit by and be passive. It wants you to step forward, even in the smallest of ways and have an effect.
On the negative side it’s about anger, harsh judgement, and abuse.
Its also covers the element of Air and star signs like Aquarius, Libra and Gemini.
