KNIGHT OF SWORDS (reversed): Libra, you are likely experiencing a range of emotions, everything from feeling great — amazing — to anxious about when the next shoe drops. You’re likely wondering if all the good things in your life are going to be washed away some how. I’ve seen this personally with one Libra in my life — it may not apply to all Libra types, alright, this is very general sun sign stuff — and I also noticed that he’s kind of cracking a bit. It’s not the most fun to watch a Libra person under this kind of duress; everything’s going well but they can’t believe it. I don’t blame you. You should be having a fairly good stroke of luck these days. Well, not luck! You earned it. Read the rest of this entry
SIX OF SWORDS: Gemini, if you feel a little scattered, it’s understandable. Just try to focus on what you’re doing when you’re doing it. Don’t let your mind get too far ahead of you. You’re sorting things out and maybe what you’re discovering in the process isn’t what you wanted. But it doesn’t matter much as things are still in a state of flux. This card talk about moving away from problems, either literally or metaphorically. Maybe you’re changing your mind about things now that you’re really thinking things over. Maybe you’re moving away from a mindset that’s been holding you back. This is a good time to think about where you’d like your thinking to go, where you’d like to see the changes in yourself. While these changes may not make huge differences in your situation overnight, it is a change for the better. Any change that’s positive is a good change, Gemini. Read the rest of this entry
EIGHT OF SWORDS (reversed): Taurus, this card talks about being ready to move forward in your life. To leave the imaginary constraints behind. Though you may not feel 100% sure of how to go about this, you do sense that you’re ready to start taking steps forward. We need to remember that it always is a little scary to go beyond what we’ve become accustomed to. This could be some limits you’ve imposed upon yourself, like maybe you don’t go out much. Or your life is online and not real life. Maybe you just go out to work, get your groceries, but you go right back into your house and…back online. Read the rest of this entry
SEVEN OF SWORDS: Cancer, the suit of swords isn’t the easiest to deal with but they can be used to your advantage. While the seven is a little sneaky, and may very well indicate that you my have to be sneaky to achieve your ends, it could also mean that someone’s sneaking around on you — and you’ll have to be sneaky to figure out what they’re doing. I know, I just over used the word sneaky but there’s no better word for this card in my mind right now.
Swords are about battle, of course, and when we see them in readings they aren’t the most pleasant at all. I think if you ask most tarot readers they’ll tell you this is their least favorite suit. But we do have to remember that these cards can come up in all kinds of questions and so if the matter at hand is romance and this card comes up, then this card is interpreted in that light. The question could be about a job and these swords can come up; there’s no way to avoid them if they have a message that needs to come to light. Read the rest of this entry
KING OF SWORDS (reversed): If this card is a person, this is a man or someone with masculine or otherwise dominant energy (yes, it can be your wife if she’s very dominant), and could be someone in authority over you. This could literally be a judge, someone judging you, or even opposing counsel in a legal matter. If this card is you, you need to realize that you are on the wrong track, especially if you feel that the world is against you, that you aren’t getting what you feel you deserve, or have an attitude lately that everyone has ‘done’ something to you or it’s all ‘their’ fault. These are energies in extreme but this is already an extreme energy. I have to say right up front that this isn’t a card that I like to see in the reverse. This person can be a son of a bitch to deal with. That’s why you need to be very certain this person isn’t you. Read the rest of this entry
SIX OF SWORDS (Reversed): This card indicates that you’re having trouble reconciling your logical mind with the emotions. You may feel like you are stuck and can’t move forward. Maybe you can’t get away from a situation because you are afraid of what moving on will be.
Are you afraid of the unknown? It is even possible that you are weighing yourself down with thoughts of things that didn’t go right and you are carrying your baggage and it’s dragging you down. If you had travel plans, or plans to ‘move’ whether physically or symbolically, there could be complications that are not sorted out yet. Keep in mind that Mercury is direct but it’s not yet passed the degree it was when it went retrograde. Read the rest of this entry
PAGE OF SWORDS (Reversed): Now, water-bearing friend, reversed cards do not make bad cards (I can just see those wheels turning in your head). It just means a different meaning to the card and not always the opposite. This is an interesting card for Aquarius to get right now considering we are just pulling out of Mercury’s retrograde phase. We’re in shadow so all the themes associated with this page are appropriate.
This card can indicate misunderstandings, miscommunication, difficulty expressing thoughts or ideas, and even saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. It is also the card of missing a message somehow, like maybe in a spam folder or a phone call lost in a cell phone app. The more negative connotations of this card would be not being honest with yourself or others, gossiping, and even being too gullible. That’s not what I see though. To me this card is just speaking about the usual delays that this phase of Mercury’s shadow. Read the rest of this entry
SEVEN OF SWORDS: This card is one that talks about deception, gathering information, mental agility, and yes, full on lying. This card even talks about breaking the law to get one’s way. It’s also a card of breaking agreements with people, too. When I see this card I usually wonder what someone’s up to because they are usually quite aware they are doing something in a sneaky way to get something, like information. It reminds me of the energy of a snoop, a detective, someone digging quietly, sneaking around, to get some information. Read the rest of this entry
