The Knight of Swords shows us another form of mental mastery, creative thinking. The Knight of Swords dances with his long sword and his short sword. Behind him, a huge number of birds are flocking. Flocking behavior in birds allows us to see the entity of the flock instead of the entity of the individual bird. In the same way, our creative endeavors are often seen in aggregate. The entire flower garden instead of one bloom; the body of work instead of one panting, the entire race instead of one bicycle. The creative master within us sees the big patterns and pictures and is able to dance with them easily and without judgement. How is this card working for you today? Do you see yourself in the knight of Swords?
