Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ace Of Swords, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore
Ace Of Swords: “A sword is double edged. It can slice with the swift assurance of justice to clear the obstructions that hide the truth. It can be the beacon to use intelligence and fairness to achieve clarity. Or it can be wielded with the arrogance of raw power in the heat of rage. These are the two sides of the strength that is embodied in this weapon – two very different uses of force to work one’s will upon the world.
Something is beginning now. The winds gather in whirling eddies to summon the guardians of the skies: the wisps and the souls and the feathered ones. From that vortex, something arises that will force the duality of the Ace Of Swords to slice one way or the other.
These are the sylphs of the air, and the guardians for the swords: the winged beings of the sky. A swan is lovely – she possesses downy white feathers and a slender neck that arcs with a sinuous grace – but that delicacy is a facade that cloaks a strong body and fierce nature that is unafraid of standing up. The swan will fight to protect its own, and strong wings open to catch and ride the winds across great distances.”*

Transformation, strength, courage and protection. Beauty, grace, ease and powerful determination. The course has been decided, and it is up to us to keep on track. We are in the process of something big here, something life changing and profound. You are the spiritual warrior.
Trust your intuition and have the confidence to follow it. Know that you are more powerful than you give yourself credit for, and that it is time for you to shine your light brightly for the world. Share your gifts. Follow your heart. Stick to your guns. Don’t let anyone or anything throw you off course. No more duality, no more masks and illusions. Simplify your life in any area you can, cut our that which drains your energy unnecessarily and add more of what makes you feel alive.
Watch for signs, symbols, messages and confirmation that you are on the right track. White feathers from your angels. Clear and repetitive dreams. Animal totems. Songs or snippets of conversations that are just too bang on not to mean anything. There are no coincidences! Number sequences… 111, 222, 333, or 11:11 etc. This is the Universe communicating with you and guiding you forward on your journey.
The sword is also an indication that you are being helped by Archangel Michael; remember to call on him for assistance along the way.
