Another Court card; goodness gracious. The court cards are some of the hardest cards to learn and interpret in the tarot, and they are some of the cards that I need the most work with. For me, the Father of Swords immediately invokes my actual father. I tend to associate people with the suits based on the element associated with the suit and the element associated with their Zodiac sign, and my father it a Libra–a little air baby like me (he’s totally not spiritual in any way and would probably gawk at being called a little air baby). Much like the Mother of Swords, I view the Father of Swords as yet another stern figure. He is someone who has faced many challenges in life and is colder for his trouble.
