Ace of Swords

The card show a ghostly hand grasping a sword.  The tip of the sword pierces a crown draped with laurels.  

This card represents power and action beginning to manifest in the Earth plane.  It may indicate the start of a new enterprise or the beginning of a very strong, power based sexual affair.  There is the suggestion of an excess of force, of pure, undirected physical strength. The crown hints at positions of authority held by fear and intimidation rather than by merit or morality.  This card is also linked to minor surgery and small cuts.

Reversed: This shows someone who is pushing too hard or coming on too strong.  It warns against over-reactions and loss of temper. If the Querant is entering a new business deal be warned that it may go very, very wrong.

EXAMPLES:  A new boss or supervisor who immediately starts reshaping things to his or her own model through intimidation and sheer force of personality.

A new lover who is way too dominant and controlling.
