The Scary Tarot Swords Suit - What Are They Afraid Of?

In the Tarot, the Swords suit is associated with the intellectual realm--thoughts, communication, bias, opinions, analysis, logic and so on. The sword, itself, is a symbol of power and cutting, engendering dread in many a foe.

And so it is with the Tarot Swords suit, which not only causes fear in many querents and readers--but also reflects the same relating to an issue at hand.

In my latest podcast, I discuss the underlying fears of each of the Swords/Air cards, which can be especially helpful when one of these cards show up reversed, ill-dignified or in a "positive" spread position. Click here to listen.
