Tarot Card of the Day

Ace of Swords
This suit represents the rational mind and its ability to discriminate. Swords cut through things in order to pierce illusion, to differentiate between fantasy and reality.
In the image of this Ace, a single upraised sword represents your prime motive or guiding ideal — the vision that guides you through life’s changing fortunes with single-minded clarity.
The sword is sometimes shown piercing a silver and/or laurel crown, a symbol of optimism implying evolution, progress, a sense of hope and victory. It is occasionally shown pointed downwards — a darker message, which refers to sacrifice, challenges and a critical environment.
A powerful shift is taking place.
