In traditional tarot, this card represents the Ace of Swords. Since a sword is double edged, it can cut through all the barriers that hold you back, if done constructively with precision. Remember theres another side to the blade. If youre rash or you use the sword in a destructive way, it could be harmful to yourself as well as others. Always pause and think before you act. This card acts as a reminder for you to vanquish negative thoughts from your mind, to strengthen and use your mental powers, and use clarity with control to initiate new ways of thinking.
