Daily Draw - Ace of Swords

The Ace of Swords is the rawest, purest energy of thought, words, ideas. It would be good today to make some firm decisions, slicing through to the heart of the matter, and to base those decisions on logic and confidence.

Swords are drawn in troubled times, but Aces are tokens of positive beginnings. Writers can use adversity to their benefit, because there is nothing painful that happens to a writer (or anyone, if they know where to look) that is without merit. Clear thinking leads to clear writing, and as I work through some of my other issues, and become more confident of myself , my mind is emerging from the muddle anxiety has created for me.

This card is from the Tarot of the Cloisters by Michelle Leavitt for US Games.


  1. I agree with you Manda that clear thinking does lead to clear writing. But you know also when I see the Ace of Swords something else it seems to say that I should be aware of is that in order to have a true balance of the way things are and not be sidetracked by illusionary thoughts, I must combine my intellect with my spirit. Neither my emotions or my intellect alone bring me to the truth. but true awareness must come from a deeper level of understanding.

    God that's me waffling again.... waffling off now lol :O)

  2. I also wanted to say this is a very nice deck.! I love the stained glass window effect.
