Communicating Our Truth: The Swords

January 28, 2021 | Jessie Bryant

On this episode of the Tarot Coven ‘Cast…we’re continuing our journey through the suits of the Tarot, as we float through the realm of Air, and contemplate the thoughts and beliefs that make up our mental beings, in the suit of Swords. We discuss the energy of the Swords overall, outline some correspondences and misconceptions, and then we take a closer look at the cards from Ace through Ten. The journey through the Swords can have us tackling uncomfortable truths, facing our fears head-on, and throwing away old narratives that don’t align with who we are anymore. All in all, it’s a suit that helps us to acknowledge and communicate our deepest truths. First things first, though, we kick this episode off with a little round of “Tarot This or That” inspired by the amazing @twinmoontarot on Instagram! Listen in to see whether we’d choose Minors or Majors, The Moon or The Sun, Death or The Tower – and much more!
