Storm clouds, pelting rain, three swords stuck through a plump, red heart. This is not a good harbinger for the upcoming Valentine’s Day! In Tarot, swords represent the element of air, thus thoughts, words, communication in general. If you’ve been hurt by someone’s words or if you’ve been the one to lash out, now is the time to come to terms and reconcile. Swords are double-edged–they can vanquish and save the day or they can wreak havoc and destruction. Consider the effect of your words. What kind of communication do you think fosters best results? If you’ve been hurt, try to forgive and move on (it’s best for you to let it go). Maybe try not to take things so personally–we all have our moments. And if you are hurling invective into your universe, check your attitude. There may be better ways for you to communicate your needs. The good news is that storms don’t last forever. The sun will come out and even perhaps a rainbow.
