Complete Book of Tarot: When upright, the Ace of Swords suggests new beginnings related to principled thinking and effective communication. You are able to focus your mind, see things clearly, cut through confusion, invoke intense force, and put matters in perspective. With the courage of your convictions, you cut through the crap and don’t suffer fools gladly. Swords are weapons of battle, and the upright Ace indicates the courage to face obstacles and fight for what you believe. You are likely to emerge victorious from your struggles, with a greater sense of personal identity. In the myth of Perseus and Medusa, the hero uses his strategic intelligence to outwit the snake-headed monster and chop off her head with his mighty sword. Sigmund Freud pointed out that the sword has long been a symbol of a powerful phallus.

Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 6: The Oxford Dictionary defines psychic as ‘relating to or denoting faculties or phenomena that are apparently inexplicable by natural laws, especially involving telepathy or clairvoyance.’ 7 In my view, the tarot is a tool that allows us to tap into our intuition, the results of which often appear ‘inexplicable by natural laws’ because we tend to ignore intuitive hunches as we grow into adulthood. The tarot helps restore the balance between rational analysis and listening to our gut. With continued practice, you may be surprised at how often unexpected yet verifiable impressions seem to leap from the cards.

Complete Book of Tarot: To calculate his cards for the year in which Clinton was impeached (1998), we would add the month and day of his birth (August 19) to the year in question, 1988: 8 + 19 + 1998 = 2007. Then, reducing 2007, we get 2 + 0 + 0 + 7 = 9, the Hermit (IX). Thus, the year measured from Clinton’s birthday in August of 1998 until August of 1999 was a time of withdrawal and turning inward to seek spiritual wisdom. Themes of introspection and personal integrity are typical of a Hermit year.
