The Suit of Swords

The realm of the mind, air, intelligence, invention & power.

Human intelligence has unlimited potential. This potential is manifested in our tools, weapons, and devices. The suit of swords has traditionally represented the realm of the mind, air, and intelligence.  In the American Tarot swords take the form of our most powerful devices. From smart phones to atomic bombs, to cocktail skewers, this suit explores the possibilities and dangers of the human intellect.  



The suit of swords represents raw intellectual potential.  The querent must decide how to use it.
Will it be a tool to build, a weapon to destroy, or just an infinite distraction?
