Ace of Swords Reversed Meaning

by MoMoTarot

Examine every option and eliminate those that are impractical or difficult to achieve


Card Details:


The reversed position of the First Card of the Sword represents that the sword has been swung and cut down. The Sword of Wisdom, which was originally used to cut through chaos, is now in reverse position, which symbolizes the overuse of thinking and wisdom. Witte believes that the reverse position of the Swords means that things will complicate, or expand, or become more numerous. This result, however, is much more negative than in the positive position. The sword is cut down, of course, because of the difficulties, disasters and obstacles, and the solutions that have to be dealt with are just disorganized.


A sword in the reverse position will not hold the crown, either because it fails to capture the crown, or because the crown that was on the sword falls off. This imagery also represents the loss of the best opportunity, the missed chance to elevate oneself. Missing that ray of wisdom in favor of growth. When the Head of the Sword is upside down, the cloud in the image becomes above the hand, representing the confusion of the mind taking over. It is time to concentrate on committing to a program or plan to confirm that step toward the desired goal. When your thoughts are clouded over, it is difficult to take a step forward, so clarify your purpose before making any moves and success will be much easier to achieve.
