This suit refers to mental aptitude, attitude and conduct. The Swords reveal the Subject’s ability to understand how they are dealing with conflict in their lives and what that could subsequently lead to. The Swords will help to identify how and why conflict is present and the extent to which the Subject actually sees, accepts and/or faces up to it.
Throughout life everyone learns and gains experience and, as a result of that, attitudes, beliefs and opinions change. At times there is little impact on the Subject’s life and at other times powerful experiences will compel them to reassess their life and relationships. Generally, this can create conflict and therefore consequential action is taken by the Subject or by someone in their life. Having the capacity to understand that mental change, and the effect it will ultimately have, should help to mitigate or ease the pain or hurt experienced.
People that are represented by the Swords cards are those that have mastered harnessing their mental energies in order to better handle the difficulties that life presents. When Swords people appear, the subject may need to learn something about the way these people conduct themselves and the way they function. Such people are clever, analytical and intellectually acute.
However, if the brain makes all the decision and people are unfairly weighted against feeling and emotion it will be hard to form meaningful relationships. It is easy to feel unimportant to Swords people, who are fiercely independent and unlikely to rely too much on anyone else. More extreme Swords people are ruthless in relationships as their head can and will overrule their hearts.
