A sword, wreathed in roses, points to the sky on a hillside. The sword is surrounded by golden light against a magical purple-blue sky.
The Ace of Swords points to the sky, reaching toward the heavens, grounded in the earth. The green of the grass represents new life and new growth. The golden light that surrounds the Sword is the illumination of new ideas, a lightning bolt of insight. I was inspired to create a purple-blue sky to represent the higher chakras of communication and intuition, the realm of higher knowledge.
The Ace of Swords is wreathed in wild roses, representing the ability to manifest dreams into reality. They also represent our connection with the Divine. They spiral around the sword, representing our journey through life as a process of continual growth and transformation.
The Ace of Swords represents a new idea whose time has come. The Ace of Swords instructs that we have the power to create and organize our lives in a way that best suits our life's purpose. It is time to cut away that which no longer serves us to make room for the new. For the seeker, it is a time to reflect on the opportunities a new venture brings; idea, clarity of thought, and willingness to let go open the doors for success.

Tarot never ceases to amaze me with its insights and wisdom! I have owned a tarot deck since I was 16-years old, but only began to seriously study and use Tarot two years ago. Astrology, along with tarot, allow us to better understand the Universe, and our place in it, through the stories that are told by symbols. Aeclectic Tarot has been a great gift, helping me to decipher the language of tarot!
