Shah of Swords

The Shah of Swords is the king of air, of thoughts, ideas, philosophy, and all that resides in the head-space. A wise judge and mediator, he leads by being fair-minded, and communication is his forte. The Sufis, however, have traditionally favored heart knowledge over mind knowledge, not because rational thought is useless but because analysis, argumentation, and the need for scientific proof only take you so far in understanding life’s secrets and truths. When this card appears for you, you are being encouraged to find a form of mastery that balances logic and emotions.
