Knight of Swords

The Spoiled kid

Knight of SwordsWe don’t make an effort. We are used to others doing our work for us and being told what and how to do things. Although we know exactly what needs to be done we do nothing.

Correction: We need to start executing our own ideas. Only once we do so we will become successful.

The Knight of Coins indicates that we are waiting for someone or something to enter our lives and change them. We are passive because we are used to things happening by themselves and therefore think that the solution is “out there”. In practice we do have good ideas and the ability to put them into action. All we have to do is think, plan and execute.

The solution will come when we switch into an active state in which we find a solution, work hard and fight for our goal. Only then will the Knight turn into an Ace of swords, and we will be able to realize our dreams and reach our goal.

Areas of particular relevance: Arguments, stubbornness.

  Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships We are easy to get along with, others find us interesting and never boring We are waiting for the other side to act, we do not try hard enough
Career We are accepting authority and can perform well in our work – if we only want to We do not initiate, we look for shortcuts so we won’t work too hard, without supervision we tend to slack off

Page of Swords

The Journalist

Page of SwordsWe are motivated by a strong feeling indicating that we are missing something better elsewhere. We are constantly looking for new topics to discuss.  We are practical, logical, communicative, and adapt well for life.

Correction: we need to spend the required time so we can get to the bottom of things. We need to diversify within the existing structure of life.

The Page of Swords represents a state of mind in which we feel that we can find something better, newer or more interesting elsewhere. We are always on the lookout for change and variation in life and want to replace the existing with the new. We do not realize, however, that in practice this variation can be found within the existing structure of our life – without the need to change it.

The card shows that we are communicative, develop good relationships and know how to charm those around us. We aspire to live the world intellectually so for us anything can be a new and interesting experience. However, if we constantly keep looking for new thrills outside of our existing life we will never be able to advance in our own life. Our challenge, therefore, is to re-invent our life and not try to replace it. For example, we should find new excitements within our existing relationship rather than seek a new partner.

Areas of particular relevance: Studies, education, learning, communication, sales.

  Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships We are social, connect easily with others and knows how to charm others We look for superficial relationships, want to move on, do not give a chance for things to develop
Career We are fast learners, know how to sell ourselves and charm our peers and supervisors We get easily bored, do not invest in our work and will not stay committed over time

Queen of Swords

The Idealist

Queen of SwordsWe are motivated by a sense of justice, ideals, and the need to improve society as a whole. We often sacrifice our immediate environment, mainly family and relationships, for the sake of society at large.

Correction: we need to think more about those who are closest to us and learn to enjoy life.

The Queen of Swords represents a state of mind in which we meditate, disengage from our surroundings and disregard interruptions so we can fully focus on what we do. We can, for example, excel at work as we focus all our attention on an important project. We have superior ideals and act to correct the world as a whole, yet we tend to forget and sacrifice what is dearest to us, mainly family and relationships.

The card shows that we have good ideas and can be ahead of our time, yet we can also be underestimated by others. Eventually we will be recognized for the talented individuals we are, but until then it is important that we become less serious and less rational so we can enjoy the life that surround us.

Areas of particular relevance: Ideals, justice, social justice, innovations, technology, medicine.

  Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships N/A We do not dedicate enough time to our relationship, we tend to miss the important things in dealing with our partner
Career We are very focused on our goal, we invest time and effort at work, we are good thinkers with solid ideas We have good ideas but others do not recognize them as such –consequently we might enter into a conflict with our peers

King of Swords

The pacifier

King of SwordsWe are motivated by a strong need to avoid conflict and achieve harmony at any price. We are willing to sacrifice our wants and needs and do not truly face our problems. Once we pass a certain threshold, however, we will dramatically cut anything that bothers us out of our life for good.

Correction: We need to learn to think more of ourselves.

The king of Wands represents a state of mind in which we want to have harmony around us. We want so badly to avoid conflict and pacify everyone that we are willing to sacrifice our opinions, beliefs, and even the most important thing: who we really are.

We tend to be ideal partners, especially in relationships. We are social and feel very comfortable around others, who usually mirror our feelings. On the other hand we are so concerned with harmony that we seldom express the things that bother us. This avoidance builds up frustration that will one day erupt in a sudden, violent and irrevocable way.

It is important for us to learn how to be ourselves and how to express our wants and needs to the world.

Areas of particular relevance: Relationships, marriage, design, art and aesthetics.

  Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships We are starting to aspire for a serious relationship leading to family and kids We tend not to discuss what bothers us and then suddenly end relationships without granting second chances
Career Peers tend to like us, support our work and give us credit We tend to be “too nice” and not fulfill ourselves due to potential conflicts
