As suggested by @TheTravelWitch I’m trying to do a daily, or almost daily card pull, to give me further insight as I continue on my journey to quit drinking.
Today I picked my box up and managed to drop the card with the Ace of Swords practically throwing itself into my lap and I figured that’s a sign if ever there was one.
The interpretation in my Tarot Journal for the Ace of Swords is:
Truth. Courage. Vision. Insight. Power. Triumph. Accomplishment. Irresistible force. Cutting through to the heart of the matter. On a roll. Needed change.
The truth will set you free. You possess the power to cut to the core of thorny issues and the ability to move forward with greater courage and conviction. While confronting raw truth may be painful, it can also arm you with valuable, powerful clarity.
I see this to mean that facing the truth that I have a problem with drinking was hard, but I’ve done it and I’m on the right track now, and I will succeed and improve myself in the process.
Anybody else have any other insights into what the Ace of Swords means? I like the book I’m working from but I realise that I have a long way to go with Tarot.
