Ace of Swords
The foundation of consciousness, Air
Mental activity, comprehension, understanding, clarity, objectivity, cognitive ability, decision
We are rational beings capable of making sense of our surroundings and to comprehend the world around us. We think, bringing order to chaos, analyze a situation and formulate theories and solutions.
This card urges us to use our heads, to trust reason and objectivity to solve conflicts and problems. Perhaps it is time to have that clarifying conversation, to sit down and think things through rather than blundering blindly along on hunches and on instinct.
Exploring the Card
For the Aces the cards revert back to the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Rowena Ravenclaw prized exactly those traits in her students that the Ace of Swords stands for – brains, intelligence, a quick and nimble mind. Her sky-blue color and her totem of an eagle associate her squarely with the air element, as does the Ravenclaw common-room, perched atop one of Hogwart’s towers and accessible only after you prove you are intelligent enough to solve a riddle.
