Focus on this card when you need to make a difficult
A young woman sits on the bank of a river with her
arms crossed over her chest and two swords balanced on her shoulders.
She is balanced, peaceful, and composed. She is
also blindfolded. In some secret societies, initiates are blindfolded,
to symbolize their spiritual and physical blindness.
She makes up for her loss of sight by engaging her
other senses: the feel of the breeze on her back and in her hair, the
sounds of the creatures of the night, and the scent of the water.
The sky above her is dark and cloudy, lit only by a
sliver of the waxing crescent moon.
The card symbolizes an uncertain peace, a frail
alliance, and impasse. It some cases, it suggests the need to break a
stalemate or resolve a tie.
The young woman is dressed in yellow, the elemental
color of air. It indicates that she’s thoughtful and quick, and that
she’s practicing air magic.
She’s pictured in a spring landscape, because the
suit of swords corresponds to the season of spring.
