Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
“The ace of swords is a very powerful card with a deep meaning. The card to me is the card of strength, inspiration and about being prepared for new challenges. I wanted to portray this with a powerful, beautiful and strong looking woman. I created the crown with beautiful sea items, the seashells and the little starfish in the middle. The traditional wreath is made ot of seaweed to match the sea throne.
I wanted to do something original and special and I was very happy with the card given to me. I created the drawing with my favorite medium, charcoal. I love the contrast and softness you are able to achieve with this medium.”
A beautiful warrior queen holds her sword high. She is victorious, but this battle was not won through strength of arms or physical prowess. As her crown, wreathed in seaweed and adorned with a shining sea star, symbolizes, this battle was won with clarity of mind and force of will. Her sword, upright and strong, indicates her focused mind and intellect. But the sea beyond her is barren and devoid of life, illustrating the truth that logic can be cold, even harsh at times.
This card heralds a major change, the start of a new, spiritual journey. This journey will take courage, as it will be life-changing. But you’ll need to exercise caution – a sword by its very nature can be dual-edged. It is a lot of power to wield, sometimes more than necessary.
