Swords are the Tarot suit most associated with conflict and strife, which can refer to internal conflict, as well. Swords cut to the heart of a matter, revealing our greatest challenges. They can tell of illness, heartbreak, war, loss and death, but they can also reveal truths we need to face in order to overcome obstacles and move forward, which ultimately is a positive thing.
The suit of Swords in a classic Tarot deck consists of 14 cards beginning with the Ace of Swords, progressing upward through the 10 of Swords, and concluding with the four Court cards, the Page, Knight, Queen and King of Swords.
When a Swords card turns up in your Tarot spread, it's likely you are facing a challenge or will come into contact with a forceful person or situation. You may be on the verge of an argument or heartbreak, or they may represent something as simple as a strong opinion or a rigid viewpoint. If you let them, the Swords cards can teach you valuable lessons.
Tarot's suit of Swords is associated with the sharply intellectual zodiac Air signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.
