The Card of the Day: The Ace of Swords
“Reclaim your personal power.”
The Ace of Swords symbolizes reclaiming your personal power by taking charge of your life. Like all Aces, it symbolizes a new beginning is at hand. Your personal power is much like a sword, waiting to be drawn from a scabbard. When you grasp what makes you powerful, you can transform your energy, from victim to victor. The Ace of Swords cuts through trance-like states of mind. It flashes with dazzling light, awakening your self-confidence.
Do you feel your personal power has been depleted somehow? Are you avoiding something that you know will make things better if you just get the ball rolling? Are you overwhelmed by anxiety, causing you to feel uncomfortable with confronting an area of your life?
A mighty hand grasps the flashing sword. Sparks crackle from its blade. The Sword represents your vitality, life force and personal power. The sword is crowned. This symbolizes that when you grasp your power, you become fit to rule your life. You are the King or Queen of your own world, vested with the divine authority to make it as successful as you dare. The mountains symbolize the great heights you will ascend to, if you decide to act.
An olive branch dangles from the left side of the crown. This symbolizes that your life will feel more at peace, when you act. This seems counterintuitive to our fears which tell us to avoid things that might create stress. However, inner turmoil comes from the avoidance of confrontation, not from taking responsibility.
A palm branch graces the right side of the crown. Palm trees are primordial, tough, and hearty. They can endure desert-like heat, and torrential hurricanes. The palm branch symbolizes your resilience. You can endure much more than you may be giving yourself credit for.
Today, a new beginning is at hand. Don't dwell on yesterday, last year, or what might lie ahead. Your personal power is crackling in the present, right now. Where will you send that energy? Channel the energy to the place in your mind where your power resides. Act on something that you have been avoiding. This will restore confidence in your mind and its ability to make better decisions.
