The Suit of Swords (also known as Spades or Blades – the suit of Spades in a traditional deck) highlights your mind, your ideas, your intellect and your reasoning ability. It’s about your mental abilities, your thinking and thought process, your beliefs and what you see as “the truth”. Also associated with the Swords is sorrow. Sorrow comes from clinging to ideas in the hopes that something is not true. Misfortune can also be associated with the Swords.
