A Walk Through the Thoth Tarot
Ace of Swords
The Ace of Swords is the primordial Energy of Air, the Essence of the Vau of the Tetragrammaton, the integration of the Ruach (BOT)
The Ruach, again, is the intellect part of our mind. And to some mystics, that part is the enemy. The mind wants to be in control and resists identifying with any higher levels of consciousness. So, we get all the anxiety and worry and sadness and conflict. The Swords tend to look really nasty - stabby cards, but! Used correctly, that stabby blade and cut through all of those conflicts.
Upon the blade is written Thelema - Greek for Will. And that is what the swords take to use. This Ace is the seed of our intellectual power - the beginnings of ideas, or just a reminder that we need to use our intellects here and while it is always good to stay balanced with our emotions, right now we need to use rational thought more. Invoke this Ace to help you see clearly!
