An owlet sits perched upon a solid black sword. She gazes forward at us as though she’s got nothing to hide. Behind her, the night sky is splattered with rainbow hued stars.
There are many ways to think of court cards. I typically view them as representing personalities, psychological traits or approaches to life. The Daughter of Swords might ascribe to the motto “keep it simple.” She is a straightforward character who doesn’t bother with frills or nonsense. What you see is what you get.
The daughter is the youngest of the courts, and has the most uncomplicated relationship to her element. Of course, swords relate to the air element and deal with the realms of ideas, reason, and communication. This daughter approaches situations directly and without drama.
The sword in this picture is positioned in a straight line. This is representative of the daughter’s straight and narrow temperament. While others would swing wildly about getting caught up in complicated thoughts and over-analyzation, the daughter is more likely to cut to the chase.
Although she is a straightforward character, the Daughter of Swords does have an understanding of others’ experiences. She is a good listener, always willing to consider different viewpoints – as long as they are clearly presented.
In a reading, the Daughter of Swords can suggest that you approach a situation as she would. Instead of getting caught up in mind games, look for the simplest solution. Clear your head and determine which of your thoughts are essential for the task at hand. When in doubt, tell the truth.
