Tarot Series~ Minor Arcana: Knight of Swords

63951679f53b24efd6f0ad0e2898a5bd

When pulled upright this card represents someone who is so focused on a certain idea, that they become oblivious to any difficulties; conflicts; or consequences it brings us, as they try to achieve it. This card is about someone full of life and energy but they need to make sure they are balancing themselves out with a good dose of compassion and responsibility. The person this card represents, is someone who once they have set their mind to something there is no stopping them. While this can be a great trait as it shows ambition and dedication it can also have some downfalls. Some of the things this person might be willing to do to achieve their goal could have some very serious consequences. They are likely prone to move ahead without any preparation or foresight, which can put them in a dangerous (or at the very least unpleasant) situation.

When pulled in reverse this card is about someone who is extremely impatient, impulsive, and full of energy. However unlike the person the upright card represents this person has no direction, despite their abundance in energy. This causes a lot of rash decisions which can drag others down with them. This person likely has a lot of scattered thoughts and they don’t tend to take the time to go through them and organize them. It is quite likely that they are a disorganized person. When they do finally have something they want to achieve with all that energy they have they are likely very unprepared due to this lack of organization. 

Here is a tarot spread to help you find some direction for all that energy you have. First I would take out the knight of swords and meditate on it thinking about your directionless energy that you have. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

When pulled upright this card is about betrayal and deception. This card is typically about you, or someone you are close with, having a hard time getting away with something. Sometimes we have to be sneaky in hopes that no one finds out. However when someone finds out we do have to face the consequences. This tends to happen when you have to react quickly and you act out of character. You may be trying to sneak out of a situation due the the situation no longer working as you thought. Instead of dealing with the issue head on you may try to sneak out of it hoping no one will notice your absence. You are likely hoping the situation will go away with time and you won’t have to deal with it however that is not the case. Ignoring the situation has actually made it worse. When you get this card you really need to think about whether not dealing with the issue is going to turn out okay or make it worse. It may seem like not facing it has worked out for you only to later realize that it’s blown up in your face. In some situations this card can also be about a wanting to “go solo”. You may want to go on an adventure on your own or just wanting to spend more time to yourself. This can be really great to explore your independence.

When pulled in reverse can have a few different meanings. One meaning can be that you need to change the way you’re doing things. The way you’ve been approaching things just isn’t working. This card can also be about a more extreme version of the upright card, in the sense of cunning victory achieved by deception and trickery. On the flip side it can also be about developing a conscience. You or someone you are close with may finally be coming clean about any manipulative things they’ve done. The trust people have had in you may be gone but with this honesty you may start gaining this trust back. This card is really about trying to be more collaborative rather than your usual method of independence. 

Here is a tarot spread dedicated to the seven of swords! First thing I would do is take the card out and meditate on it while thinking about what it is that you’re trying to avoid. Then I would shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
