Knight of Swords: Mastery of Passionate Thinking and Intentionality.
By now many of us know that the
Court Cards represent personality Archetypes. In the book: TAROT-Dictionary and Compendium, Jana Riley describes Archetypes ; The original Archetype was a thought in the Mind of God-male and female. The Supreme Mind became enamored with this thought and created life in Its image by the friction of Its Word-or by the motion of Its sound. This caused the Universe to divide into ordered strata, and because creationis within the Mind of God, everything is a model or a copy of the original pattern, which is God.
The court cards are pictures of 16 different personality types. Eight proven by Carl Jung, and later 8 more by Katherine Briggs and Isabel Myers who devised the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ( MBTI) which is the most accurate tool used by counseling centers around the world . Proving once again the Ancient Wisdom of the Tarot.
The Knight of Swords is seen to be flying over water. In alchemy, elemental air is associated with the Mind and elemental Water is emotionality. This combination of air and water represents passionate thinking. Three swallows represent the union of mind and heart with all action proceeding in united direction. This serves to remind us that focus, will, and intention must be aligned to achieve any goal.The dagger in the left hand and the sword in the right hand, represent yin/yang, (feminine/masculine) forces of One energy. Female is magnetic force and male is electric force, both must be combined to create a balanced unity called life. Four wings, are four directions, north, south, east and west; each represent four levels of conscious: mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. The six pointed star at the center of the wings, symbolizes illumined clarity and spiritual guidance. Golden armor represents powerful fluid thinking.When this card is thrown, it indicates the fiery part of air , which states that the querent is a passionate thinker and/ or stubborn and defensive. A mature male who is in possession of a cutting- edge mind promotes creative control and will. Often involves matters of justice,discipline, civic and personal order. Or that the querent is involved with such a male. As always, there is greater depth to this card than can be explained in a short text so for further information and/or a personal appointment, call Eli @ 253-241-0129 or email <firstname.lastname@example.org> Please leave a message if phone is not answered, as I may be giving readings at the time of your call.
