Daily Draw Affirmations Ace of Swords

The humorous Housewives Tarot today yields up the Ace of Swords.

A wedding-ringed hand wields a large knife as a multitude of different cakes and pies, with slices cut out of them, wind past.  Towards the front is a lemon meringue pie, then a pink-frosted sponge cake.  A little further back is a heart-decorated chocolate torte, a petit-fours-type cake, a chocolate-frosted sponge, and a carrot cake, as well as a coconut-dusted sponge.

So, what to make of this sweet feast?

I use discernment to remove what is unnecessary in my life.


I mindfully choose what I want, what I need, and what I let go.


I cut sugar out of my life.

  1. Love it , that last one is great. Ace of swords is for me about mastery and this is certainly the sentiment here. I love love love the Housewives tarot and use it with students who sometimes struggle with the Rider Waite deck. I love the Housewives irreverance and tell it how it is stance ..thanks Chloe fab to see this on a Sunday morning F.xxx

  3. Hi Fiona,

    Yes, you certainly get a different perspective from the Housewives, while still having the same basic ideas. I can see how it would be a good starter deck for some: not too mystical, just clear and down-to-earth.

    Hi Helen,

    I'm amazed you don't already have this deck! It is great fun. There's a forum section on it in TABI, too.

    Best, C

  4. I actually don't have that many decks Chloe - I think my total of tarot decks is 28 then I have 4 oracle decks of which I only really use one. So my collection is very modest. But I do like the fun side of this Housewives one.

  5. Hi Helen, that is a fairly modest collection. Somehow from your posts I thought you'd have lots more. I guess perhaps as there are two of you posting... Still, as every woman knows, size doesn't matter except when the deck is too large to shuffle ;-D

  6. "Still, as every woman knows, size doesn't matter except when the deck is too large to shuffle ;" ha haaa so funny!

    I would like to have more decks, but finances don't allow me to purchase just when I would like. I usually get a deck at Christmas, and a very lovely friend is buying me one for my up and coming 60th birthday - just a couple of weeks away now - I will officially be a senior citizen :(

  7. Well, 4 or 5 of the decks I have I got for review purposes from TABI, so given how good your writing is I'd suggest writing something tarot-related and sending it in. Once you've written something, you can put in requests for review material they have available.

    In any case, 28 decks is not to be sneezed at. I know some readers who swear by just one or two and can't understand why someone would want more. However, being a double Gemini (rising and ascendent) I'm a born polygamist, at least where decks are concerned ;-)

    As for becoming a senior citizen, does this mean you'll have more time to devote to Tarot Bella?
