Suit Of Swords

The Suit of Swords is associated with air. Swords are cards of the mind. They’ve got seriously cool, calculated, and harsh vibes. The Suit of Swords is driven by thought, and often tends to deal with decision-making, intellectual pursuits, planning, and analyzing. I often think of each sword in a card as a thought. Many of the sword cards are glyphs for overthinking, madness, or thoughts in conflict. The Suit of Swords stands in contrast to the Suit of Cups, and suggests that choices are being made with the head over the heart.
