The Knight of Swords ~ The Winds of Change!
Tarot Tuesday! Last week we had the Queen of Swords, and this week we have the Knight—so it seems we are in the realm of swords once again! Swords are the element of air, of thoughts, ideas, inspiration and messages. The Knight of Swords represents: innovation, new ideas, communication, independence and courage!
The Knight of Swords is a harbinger of change. He’s like a strong wind that blows into your life, shaking the trees and even ruffling feathers! This knight is highly intellectual and innovative; indeed he is often ahead of his time. You may not always agree with the Knight of Swords, but he will definitely open your mind to new ideas.
If the Knight of Swords has appeared to you, this is a time to “clear the air”. Is there something you need to communicate to someone? Is there something you need to express to the world? Now is the time!
Of all the court cards, knights are perhaps the most courageous, as they are willing to grow and evolve with life changes. At the same time, they can also be impetuous and arrogant, believing that their ways and ideas are more important than others. The Knight of Swords is learning humility and how to balance his heart with his mind.
So this week, embrace change and new ideas. Free yourself by communicating your truth. It doesn’t matter if others don’t receive your message clearly. In the immortal words of En Vogue: “Free your mind, and the rest will follow!”
