Three of Swords has the power to change your life completely. As heart wrenching of a time this may be, it is an honest and transparent look at your current experience. All wondering, guessing, and intuitive inquiring, is now replaced by crystal clarity. While this may be painfully clear, this comes with a great relief of understanding. The card depicts three swords pointing downwards, bound together by a mangled ribbon of blood dripping at the bottom. The background behind the swords is blackened and grim and the outer expanded energy is light. The light of Truth will always reveal itself.
Five of Swords represents self destruction. A parasite has been cut in half, as the self-destructive patterns are coming out of hiding. Patterns are being noticed and looked at more closely than ever before. Where once things could have been set aside or taken lightly, you are now feeling the heaviness of self imposed limitations. This is a perfect opportunity to look at any patterns that are arising and break the ongoing cycles.
Daughter of Swords pierces softly through illusion. The owl sees through the game of fear and the strong sense of false identification of self. She sees through illusion, and rests in her star filled being. If identification sprouts within yourself as fear, remove the power of this invisible ghost. Fears that arise within are internal responses that are created by the false self appearing real. These fears that have been nurtured and protected, gain strength each time you bow down to their force.
