II. Meaning of Ace of Swords Linestrider
The Swords is a suit that represents wisdom, thought, and cause, closely related to justice, truth, and moral elements. In Chinese philosophy, the Sword represents the element of Air – which is invisible but in constant motion. With its power, it can still blow away bad things and clean the space it passes through.
The Air element is associated with knowledge, action, power, and change. It shows masculine energy, brute force, and strength, even though it is not visible. But Sword also implies discord or unhappiness. Our intelligence is an invaluable asset yet a factor forming the ego of each person. It can therefore lead us to deviate from the right path, especially when not accompanied by the wisdom of the heart. The cards of the Sword suit therefore represent strength, thought, communication, struggle, and conflict.
The Ace of Swords Linestrider represents the need to approach things with a clear mind and complete concentration. Try to search for evidence, facts, and hard data. Now is the best time to put your emotions aside and see things with analytical eyes. This card does not always carry politeness; sometimes it will push you to painful truths or force you to put your fantasies and idealism aside in order to approach things in a more rational way. According to the author, a bird of prey would be the perfect representation of this card – the animal which possesses sharp vision, hunting ability, agility, and majesty. Some of the elements depicted in this card represent victory and are generally quite positive – the crown, the sword pointing up, the bay leaf. Every sign of success is yours if you can clearly understand and evaluate the facts, be honest with your motivations, accept the truth of your situation, and take decisive action.
