Everyday Tarot, 06/09/11: Detail Fixation / Rev Knight of Swords

reversed-knight-swords-tarot-forecast-radiantBeing all Virgo like I am, I have a huge tendency to miss the forest for the trees. I can become so enthralled in pruning a particular bush that I’ll miss a brush fire a few feet over. But damn—doesn’t the bush look perfect?!

Today’s Tarot forecast is the inverted Knight of Swords or “Prince of the Chariot of the Winds, ” associated with Air in Air. He thinks, quite simply, too much! His thought go hither and yon, full of ideas and idealism, but sometimes lacking practicality. He can overthink. Inverted, he lets us know we don’t have to have all the facts to succeed in our quest.

The questions are more important than the answers. Specifically, the question of what you really want, not how you can orchestrate it. Don’t over-intellectualize. And forget perfect-case scenarios, trying to plot it everything out like a movie of the week. That doesn’t work well, what with so much of that pesky free will floating about.

Focus on the feeling, thus creating the vibration you’re seeking. Leave the details up to spirit. That allows for a flow you could never mastermind independently. This is how you get there.

Do you get sidetracked by the details?

    Met him just yesterday! The Knight I mean! I was playing around at a Tarot site I’ve been using to learn the cards, and did an online draw (don’t have my own deck yet) and there he was! Not reversed though. I tried to understand what he was all about but I did not quite get there. Thanks for giving me extra tips!

  2. “The questions are more important than the answers. Specifically, the question of what you really want, not how you can orchestrate it”

    Yeah… this really resonates with me today! I keep trying to figure out what I’m going to do when I don’t even know what I WANT to do. I think it’s time for this Knight to rein in her white charger and regroup. LOL

  3. Ah, the Knight of Swords… My nemesis…
    All that thinking, all that movement! He’s a bit much to take for this Queen of Cups.
    What do you think is his best quality?

    • Well, it depends on what’s needed at the time, what his “best” quality would be to me. I will say that I admire his idealism. There is a purity about the Knight, a dedication to making sure everything fits together logically, fighting through any disconnects to create a unified, cohesive perspective that can serve as a foundation.

      I think it’s important his ideas are further developed and matured, more like the Queen or King of Swords would But the enthusiasm and the demands for clarity can also serve at the right time.

  4. I get this card a lot..

    let me ask ya, I really like this Osho deck you have. And I checked them out on Amazon. I am going to buy a deck. I buy used books on Amazon all the time and I love that they are used. I love the way they have a history when they come to me. But, I wonder about buying a used tarot deck. Something about that makes me hesitate a little. (Dixie..Josi is a terrible cheapskate). The prices for new/used on this are comparable so I’ll buy a new deck for the Osho Zen..but what do you think about buying a used tarot deck? Any big deal?

Shine Thy Light!
