The reversed As D’épée Tarot means you lack a clear idea of what your goals and your true aspirations are. You have the ability to understand deeply but you should wonder whether you prove it specifically or not.

Let’s set SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Practical and Time-bound) to be more clear about your ambition and focus on the essentials and plan a smarter schedule. The reversed sword also reflects an idea or concept that you have not applied, perhaps because you are not sure whether it will bring the desired result or not.
