Card 1, within: Ace of Swords

Introduction: As with all Aces, The Ace of Swords can indicate a new beginning of some sort in your life, possibly on several fronts. Sometimes this new beginning can be started by a separation of some kind – from a relationship, or from a job situation. Know that as anxiety-producing as such a new beginning can sometimes be, that underneath it all is good, beneficial energy that is getting you where you want to go.

General: In general the Ace of Swords calls on us to not be afraid to make a leap if it’s in our best interests. In short, bravery is called for. As the old adage says, “feel the fear and do it anyway.” You have a good idea already of what must be done. The hard part is the doing of it. Start today.

Keywords: First step towards redemption and exultation. Open mind, ideals, ideas, good plan. Clear vision. Desire to rise, climb and find the truth. Intense and singular focus.

Card 2, without: Queen of Swords

Creates an environment of mind.

Keywords: An environment with intellectual integrity and truth where you can develop ideas and freely gather knowledge and wisdom and share the same. Sharp and direct words.

General: In general the Queen of Swords can indicate that your instincts are serving you well. You already know what it is you want and need, now you just have to go after it. Be mindful of other people’s boundaries as you are doing so, however. This Queen has forceful energy which some people find abrasive.

Card 3, advice: Knight of Disks

On a quest for what is physical.

Introduction: The Knight of Pentacles points to messages, often with regard to money and finance. You are likely to finally receive news that you’ve been waiting on, and this news is likely to be good. This Knight is a very practical card. The news in question is unlikely to be that you’ve won the lottery.

General: The Knight tells us to pay attention to the mundane and normal parts of our lives. A wise man once said,  “Take care of the little things, and the big things will all fall into place.” The Knight of  Pentacles asks you to look at how you are handling your affairs, and is a grounding influence.

Keywords: Don’t look outside for an answer to the problem, look inside to find peace. You already have everything you are looking for. Look in your own home. Do not have doubt in yourself, you are made for this and already have all the tools. Take the middle path, use just what you need (so I don’t need the Adobe MAX conference, a bike or new clothes! – good), no more or less.
