Until next week,
Ideas may come to you suddenly today like a bolt from the blue, and you will feel an immediate rightness about them. Don’t second guess yourself and don’t talk yourself out of these flashes of inspiration and insight. These revelations will prove perfect for your purposes.
This weeks randomly drawn card is the Ace of Swords. In the tarot deck an Ace is akin to a seed which contains the essence of the suit….in this case Swords, which represent ideas, the intellect and communication.
In this card we see a brilliant white sword which stands straight up, piercing the black of the night sky. This symbolises truth and clarity and can indicate that any hidden motives or agendas are about to be exposed, for better or worse.
The white lightening which zigzags across the sky represents those brief moments of illumination and insight when we suddenly see the truth of something, or experience a light-bulb moment. Although these revelations can come and go in a flash, what has been revealed can never be forgotten and remains an everlasting truth in our lives, symbolised by the rainbow coloured lemniscate coiled around the hilt of the sword.
The Ace of Swords also heralds the arrival of inspiration, new ideas and fresh perspectives. However at this stage the insight it brings is just pure potential and it is up to us to put in the work and focus to bring these embryonic beginnings to manifestation and fruition. The lightening in the card can be viewed as both dangerous and inspiring, reflecting the fact that sometimes new and exciting ideas can seem threatening in the way that they often shake up the status quo.
I hope that this week you receive some amazing insights and flashes of illumination which spark off new beginnings in your life! Let us know in the comments below if the Ace of Swords visits you over the upcoming week.
This morning I asked for guidance regarding my gifts and talents. I wanted to know which strengths I had which could be put to use in the world with best effect, both for myself and others. The Queen of Wands and The Ace of Swords literally shot out of the pack with a force and gusto which immediately indicated their resonance with the question I had just asked!
Firstly the Queen of Wands speaks to me of enthusiasm, warmth, positivity and inspiration. This queen is bursting with a vivid radiance, exuberance and creativity which she brings to bear on all her projects. Her life force is palpable and she can’t help but motivate and inspire others to be their best selves. This is the energy which I need to bring to my connections with others in 2015.
The second card that leapt from the pack shrieking “me, me, me!” was The Ace of Swords. This card imbues me with the sense that this year is all about communication, whether that be via the written word, face to face or connecting with like minded people online. Whereas 2014 was a very introspective “Hermit” year for me, this year tells me that it is time to get out there and share my gifts with others. Instead of sitting on the sidelines of life it is my time to fully immerse myself in connecting and networking…..sharing my experiences and what I have learned in my life so far. Although 2014 was a navel gazing year, my natural inclination has always been to reach out to others and help them in whatever small way I can. This year it is time to make use of my friendly, approachable nature in combination with communication and people skills to really try and make a difference! Bring it on!
The card I have picked today is The Ace of Swords. This is the card of sudden flashes of insight and clarity. Maybe you have been wrestling with a thorny issue or problem for some time, and then suddenly, like a bolt from the blue the answer is presented to you in a wholly formed flash of inspiration. You wonder why this perfect solution had never occurred to you before…..but here it is, flawless in it’s creative simplicity!
If you get a sudden, lightening bolt of inspiration today be sure to make a note of it as it could be just the solution you’ve been searching for!
