Ace of Swords

Ace of Swords

Mercury goes direct at 0° Libra today, bringing with it the need to move forward again in terms of problem-solving and communication skills. After three weeks in retrograde motion, we can expect to see these areas to move ahead again, and to clear up some earlier communications missteps and misunderstandings.

Mercury in Libra calls for more discretion, diplomacy and harmony, and encourages us to be more objective in our thinking. Much like the Ace of Swords — this version from the Crystal Tarot — it invites us to cut through the confusion and uncertainty, and adopt a clearer perspective.

You can see the Libra need for balance in the mirror images of the crescent moons that frame this card, They represent the Crescent and Balsamic Moons, which fall on either side are the new Moon. The current Moon is in fact Balsamic, as it moves toward the Libra New Moon. These crescent Moon symbols are repeated on the Sword’s hilt.

Today’s Moon  also conjuncts Mars, an aspect that is beautifully referenced here with the Sword plunging into the depth’s of the ocean (emotions) and piercing the crab on its floor. The Crab is associated astrologically with the sign Cancer, which is the ruler of the Moon.

It reminds us of the need to get a handle on our emotions as we strive for more clarity and perspective.

It’s up to you to decide how you want to wield your sword. Are you ready to stand up for what you believe in, even if it goes against status quo expectations?  Are you ready to make a decision about something you were unsure about in the past? Are you ready to take back your power?

You want to be conscious about what you “put out there” today — through your words and through your actions. The Ace of Swords encourages you to speak truthfully, but to do so from the heart. Be considerate of the feelings of others: remember that words can be both helpful and hurtful, so use yours wisely.
