Ace of Swords

Ace of Swords:

Today’s card — from the Alchemical Tarot — is all about clearing your head and focusing your intentions in order to achieve your goals.

The Ace of Swords — as with all Aces — can act as a tool for manifesting. It is raw, pure, unharnessed energy that can be channeled into something both powerful and magical.

It can act as a lightning rod for either positive or negative energy, depending on how it’s used. It refers to getting to the heart of the matter, cutting through the BS, speaking your mind and honoring your truth.

But the Ace of Swords can also be somewhat aggressive and argumentative. When used negatively it really does “cut like a knife” with respect to cruelty or hurtful words.

In this version of the card, a rainbow-hued basilisk is entwined around the blade of the Sword, while a white dove flies in the distance. The dove’s wings are repeated on the hilt of the Sword.

The juxtaposition of these two disparate forces — the dove representing peace and the basilisk representing a powerful yet destructive alchemical force — reminds us of the need to balance our decisions with forethought and our actions with foresight.

Think about what’s been weighing on your mind that now needs to be decided once and for all. And what discussion needs to be had in order to iron out any differences. The Ace of Swords encourages you to speak truthfully but to do so from the heart. Be honest but diplomatic. And be forthright but compassionate.

A healthy dose of discretion can take you a long ways. Be considerate of the feelings of others: remember that words can be both helpful and hurtful, so use yours wisely today.
