The Suit of Swords
The Minor Arcana deal with the business of everyday life. Like the Suit of Wands
, the Suit of Swords have a traditionally masculine, phallic imagery and energy. They are associated with the mind. These cards center around intellectual pursuits, thoughts, and perceptions. Swords are linked to the Air element, and the Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius astrological signs.
