Ace of Swords: The mental world of thinking. The time of Fall and the space of West. Swords are representative of change, new ventures and ideas, the intellect, the mind, reasoning, analysis, planning, communication, logic, opinions, judgments, and all thought processes of conscious.
The clouds below the Ace of Swords, is the confusion of the clouded mind, that the Ace of swords has moved above. It is mental clarity, creative thinking, the inspired and innovative mind.The Crescent Moons, represent a receptive and balance mind (as above so below) and the two balls are the Sun which symbolize dynamic expression. The serpent handle represents the and self -regenerating and renewing mind. The radiant crown, is expanded awareness (enlightenment) that comes from the piercing mental clarity of the Ace of Swords. New insight, "a light bulb moment". From a Tibetan Tantrik's point of view, this is the "diamond consciousness." The Ace of Swords is associated with the Air Sign months of Libra (September 21- October 21), Aquarius ( January 21- February 21),Gemini (May 21-June 21). Again, all Aces stand for a years time so when this card is thrown, the qualities of experience, creative, innovative, mental clarity want to be expressed through you for the period of one year. This would be a good year to actualize a dream or to implement and original idea. It would be a good time to write,edit, research, brainstorm, initialize intuitive thinking, and for firm decision making.The Ace of Swords, is the application of Wisdom which flows down from Kether (Supreme conscious) to the Sephiroth (state of conscious energy) Chokma on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. This card is Air, and can become notably passive without the balanced application of Fire (wands) and Water (cups) which re the original parents of Air. There is much to study about this card so for more information and/or a live reading, either on-line or in person; call Eli @ 253-241-0129 or email email@example.com .
