The Ace of Swords ~ Your Personal Excalibur!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Ace of Swords, representing: Rebirth, Divine Will and Truth. Time for a story…Pictured here is the moment when King Arthur, as a teenage boy, pulled the magical sword Excalibur from the stone on New Year’s Day.
For ages, the sword has been a symbol of divine rulership and might. But it more than that. It represents the spiritual will that conquers fear and self-doubt. It is the strength of clear thinking, that routs the mental armies of worry and indecision. It is the fiery force of intuition, an attribute of the higher mind. When one holds the magic sword, they are mentally empowered, allowing them to follow their path of destiny. A warrior on the road of life.
When the Ace of Swords appears for you, tap into your power of one-pointed thinking. Seize hold of your divine will and wield it as a tool to vanquish negative thoughts. Remember, that to live by fate is be controlled by circumstances beyond your control. To follow your destiny is to honor your spiritual heritage and recognize that you came into this world for a clear purpose.
By removing the sword from the stone, you are learning to master your mental powers. This card can indicate the birthing of a new way of thinking and the demise of illusions. It may signify the start of an intellectual project, the writing of a book, or the beginning of a journey.
