Card: Ace of Swords – from The Hermetic Tarot by Godfrey Dowson.
“Invoked power for good or evil. Whirling force. Strength through trouble. Affirmation of justice. Great determination.”
Message from the Faeries: In a world that is full of chaos and uncertainty, it can be easy to get swept up by your or emotions. One emotion that is easing to get tangled up in is fear. Fear is a force of its own. It is so powerful for the that it can take over and one can be easily lost in it.
There will always be events that occur in your reality that will evoke fear. Sometimes fear is a necessary emotion that will help you survive, but it then becomes an emotion that is clinged to when no longer needed. Often, fear is irrational and evoked by others in order to cause you harm for their own benefit.
We want you take this sword that we present to you in this card. Learn to use this sword of knowledge and discernment to fend off the fear that is not serving you. Don’t let fear manipulate and control you. If you know that other people use fear to try and control you, what are you doing to stop it? You own yourself. Nobody else own you and fear does not own you.
One more thing we would like to say: when you feel like your heart is too hurt or fragile to move forward, turn to the cunning of your mind and use logic to guide you to your truth. Use this sword to fight your way through difficult times.
We love you,
