Please note that in the suit of swords, the direction the sword(s) are pointing has an impact on the card.



Ace of Swords

Emerging from a cloud, a hand holds a two-edged sword. A crown of victory rests upon it. The six yods represent life force. This card represents victory. We strongly have the power to love or hate.

Reversed

The sword is used for harm. Great loss is possible, as well as many obstacles.

Two of Swords

Blindfolded, she can't see her way through hard times. She's turned her back on the water(emotions) and nears a point of decision. Still, she keeps her swords upright and balanced. She will contemplate, but take no action right now.

Reversed

Decision has been made. She must be careful who she deals with. She must not share confidences.

With a stormy background, the heart is pierced. Gried and sorrow are prevalent. Surrounding cards will tell the source of the sorrow.

Sorrow remains, but to a lesser degree.

Six of Swords

Rough waters are on the right, smooth on the left. We are encouraged to row to the left, but are not yet doing that. Difficult times could end for the family if the rower would only take matters into his own hands.



Reversed

The boat is no longer afloat. Abandon! They are stuck in a negative situation.

After sneaking away with five swords, two are left in the ground as evidence. Someone is being deceptive - hiding the truth.

Eight of Swords

This is a card of fear and she is held in its grip. She may have created her own prison because she is afraid to move out of a situation.

Reversed

She has a bit of breathing room. It's possible for her to relax and try to see her way clear.

This is the nightmare card. A woman holds her head in despair. Surrounding cards will explain the depth of her misery.

Time will heal and she will have developed strength of character.

Ten of Swords

The swords have actually pierced his body. Final conclusion is at hand because there is no longer life in the situation. This is not a card of death, but a card showing the absolute end of a cycle.

Reversed

He has lost the deep feeling he once felt for his loss and is ready to move on.

Pay attention. There's more to this than meets the eye. The Page wants to help by giving extra information.

The Knight has a great need to tell us something. He believes that "Forewarned is forearmed."

Queen of Swords

Represents: Mature woman/brown hair/eyes


Sitting high in the sky upon her throne, she holds out her hand to us. Is she calling attention to something? She's seen her share of sorrow but bears it well. She may represent a widow.

Reversed

Loss of sword means loss of power to the Queen. Easily angered, she is deceitful and unjust.

King of Swords

Represents: mature man/brown hair/eyes

The King stares straight at us, possibly making us uncomfortable. He is well-educated and has many ideas and thoughts for us. He does not hesitate to share.

Reversed

The dark clouds are dominant now. The King is unhappy. He is opinionated, cruel and will make unfair assessments.

Ace of Pentacles

Again, a hand emerges from a cloud, this time offering us a Pentacle. This card signifies the beginning of prosperity. It also appears in a reading when a job is about to take a new direction.

Reversed

Take a closer look at financial management. There is something lacking.
