This is the Ace of Swords from the Paulina Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy.
Considering this card and the cards I've thrown daily for the past week, I believe it's time to do an 'in depth' reading for the near future. My expectations are high, but I feel as if I'm spinning my wheels.
The Ace of Swords depicts strength in adversity. We've certainly had our share of adversity of late, but I'm not feeling overly strong. I ask the question "What do I need to know today" before my draws, and I believe the Ace of Swords is trying to remind me that better days are very close, I just have to keep my sanity and remain strong and mentally alert to get there!
This card denotes the beginning of something promising, and this will come out of the struggles we've been going through. I just have to remember that the hurdles must be cleared...But most of all, she is reminding me that I have the power to clear them!
