Ahh, today’s tarot card blows in like a breath of fresh air: the Ace of Swords.
With its cool, clear simplicity, this card embodies the pure essence of the Swords suit–intellect, rationality, ideas, communication. No mincing words or getting clouded with emotion; this sword cuts to the chase with sharp insight. Easy breezy. This bodes well for achievements of the mind–our intelligence, ambition, and ideology. A call for decisiveness and ingenuity. Of the air element, this card also has a little fire to fuel our innovation and taking the offensive. It can perhaps become a little too cool and calculating, though, verging on callous and contentious.
At any rate, just looking at this card clears my muddled mind, helping me shake subjective fears to get to the heart of a matter and do what needs to be done, say what needs to be said, in a logical, reasoned manner. Or at least I try to. “Monkey Mind” is kind of an occupational hazard. 🐵
My chosen crystal pairing: blue calcite + Tibetan quartz for calm clarity.
