The Knight of Swords: Reversed Meanings
- Evil Intentions
The Thoth Tarot Knight’s
Knights are supercharged with energy. They actively bring something into your spread and into your life. It could be a visit, news heading your way or major changes. Depending on the energy of you spread, a Knight could be a serious opponent or challenge in your future. The Knights are very special cards because they are all active, they are on their way and on a mission. Pay close attention to their message for they want to take you somewhere and show you the best way to continue on your path. They serve the King and Queens of their suit and usually announce actions, news and revelations. Knights are about forward motion, high spirit, drive, determination and almost reckless demand for compliance.
The Thoth Tarot Suit of Swords
The Suit of Swords is associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence. This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. The Suit of Swords deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centred around the mind and the intellect. Swords mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Swords themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups). The negative aspects of the Suit of Swords (i.e. when the Swords cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.
The magnificent Thoth Tarot Deck contains the Kabbalistic and astrological attributions described in Aleister Crowleys Book Of Thoth. It is known for its striking beauty, as well as its depiction of an understanding of the occult that was gathered over a lifetime of study. In 1773 Antoine Court de Gébelin claimed that Egyptian priests coded the Book of Thoth into the images of the tarot.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Tarot Triumphs: Keep in mind the difference between the image of the card in your mind and the external world. Don’t try to place the image in the external world, like a vision or hallucination.
Elements of the Psychic World: One of the four natural elements used in pagan rituals and magic. In Wicca a water elemental is one of the four spirits that energizes a spell and brings its wishes into being. Water is a symbol for the female principle – the moon goddess, intuition, emotion, love, relationships and the natural cycles of birth, death and rebirth. The magical tool associated with the water element is the cauldron or chalice. Its colour is blue and it is associated with the zodiac signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. In Chinese philosophy water represents the deep hidden characteristics of a person. Hearing in general is also associated with this element. Water flows deep and water people tend to be thinkers.
Development for Beginners: As you touch each of the objects, say to yourself, ‘I am feeling an object that is [insert a texture-related adjective]. I am sensitizing my sense of touch to enhance my psychic abilities.’
