huge majority of the cards in this deck focus on one - or at most two -
individuals, with minimal use of man-made objects or symbols. One
exception to this is the Aces, which all feature different woodland
Here, on the Ace of Swords, we have an elegant heron
on a simple, purple background with a ribbon-like detail. The heron has
a clarity of focus that suits this card well. For instance, it stands
waiting for fish to come close enough to catch, assessing the water
currents and the fishes habits to judge the best spot on any given day.
The Ace of Swords, likewise, can be seen as representing the mind's
ability to assess and plan, to see what facts are relevant.
myself, what I see today is more the new communication aspect of this
card. We'll be meeting up with a heap of cousins today, and it will be
the first time Big Boy has seen them in nearly two years. At not quite
six, two years is a long time, and they're all communicating so much
better these days.
I am grateful for the chance to establish new lines of communication.
