If there is one card in the entire Tarot that scares people, it is the sword. The images alone are enough to create a haunting sense of despair.
In this suit, and swords trapping people, jump on their heads, and pass through the heart. Many of the images show women blindfolded or using swords as weapons of destruction, as in The ten of swords, where men are literally stabbed in the back and lie in a puddle of his own blood. The Queen of Swords is called even the Mark of the Widow.
The sword and the beliefs
The letters of the sword, however, are the key to your own freedom. These letters are almost always related to our mentality and the deep histories that we tell ourselves about our own worth, our abilities and our closest relations.
The self-limiting beliefs and fears tend to creep into our dreams and in the waking life. Prevent us from taking the stage to sing at the karaoke, apply for the perfect job or invite to come out to that friend in common that makes our heart beat faster.
The swords are also associated to the elements of interpersonal relationships of our life that we can avoid.
Does your partner maintains the distances? Does the environment in your team is tense? Are you avoiding your best friend, but you don't know why?
These letters often point to the hard work we do to overcome relationships or harmful habits that begin in the mind and end up forming part of the manifest world.
