~ Discovering the Wild Unknown: Ace of Swords ~ Today’s card draw in the Discovering the Wild Unknown series is The Wild Unknown Ace of Swords. I want to start off by providing an important notice, which will be included in all of this…
Yod comes up in many of the cards such as the Ace of Swords, Wands, and Cups, and in the Tower (the falling flames) because of its deep symbolic meaning.
However, the sword has two edges, and for every gift it gives us, it also comes with the warning of cutting away at something.
However, if we are aware of what we are saying, if we are aware of what we are thinking, of the knowledge we share, and we concentrate on using the energy of Air for positive means, then while there are difficult lessons within the suit of Swords, we can still gain positive experiences, and thus, create positive experiences.
In order for our ideas to be heard, we must communicate with them. In order for us to understand our ideas, we must have good comprehension. Understanding the dual nature of how we communicate, how we understand, and the ideals we hold to be true can determine how our reality is shaped, and how we influence the world around us.
It seems fitting, as I write this, that Mercury is in Pisces. Pisces is the sign of intuition, and most ultimate water sign of the zodiac. Mercury is the planet of communication and travels. Transitioning from the Ace of Cups, in which we focused on the intuitive and emotional beginnings and development if the suit, to the Ace of Swords, represented by air, representing communication. Of course, it isn’t just communication that it represents, but logic and the intellect as well.
