Knight of Swords


Fortune Cookie: Go after it. Go! Go! Go! But go after it smart, careful, clear and clean!

Last saw this guy in early March.  It’s one of those cards I have a trouble integrating into my life.  Maybe I need a thyroid supplement.  Kelp.  A fire under my… self.  Something.

It’s a card that says,

Okay, okay, okay!  You over there!  And you.  You, too!  Everybody! Hey! 



The Knight of Swords is a card of action.  Fiery, passionate action.  So if there’s something you’ve been putting off, or something you have wanted to do but always delay, today is the day to get started.  With!!!  Gustooooooooo!!!!!! [I hate it when I do that.]

However, I will also share that this Knight has occasionally (actually, ruddy well frequently) been known to leap before he looks to the ultimate and utter dismay of himself − and pretty much everybody who is by some sad mischance suddenly involved with cleansing the flying doofus of the huge, deep pile of… meadow muffins he has launched himself into.

Quite an image with yer bran cereal today, no?

And, he has from time to time gone so far as to find himself moving with such great passion that, all unknowing, he oversteps appropriate bounds, doesn’t check out the situation and its implications thoroughly, and blows his rosy red Orkney rump to smithereens in the process − taking a pile of other good folk down with him in the mess. If he thinks of them at all − the self-centered bugger − he thinks of them as collateral damage, nothing more.

Other readers see the Knight of Swords as representing skill and bravery, or wrath and war. [A wee tad of distinction there, don’t you think, friends?  Hmmmm?]

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, sees him as a determined, intelligent young man [uh… person] – so keep an eye out – but also as someone who may be overeager to display heroics which can cause him to misjudge. [And thus end up in the m. muffins.  Or country Frisbees. Bullcrumpets.  Whatever.]


Get moving!!!! 

But take a few moments or go a few steps back and calmly, objectively check out the terrain really thoroughly first.

And double-check that you are acting with integrity, and doing something that is in fact desired by all parties who have a vote. (You might even wanna go so far as to further explore whether you are about to do something that IS in fact for the highest and best.  Always a useful test.  Imagine what the planet might be like today if we had REALLY pretty much all done that all along.)

As I’ve said before:

That way you won’t paint your foyer in record time, but paint it the lavender shade that was discussed while tippling on New Year’s Eve rather than a pale ice gray − you know, the color that matches the paint chip that was left under your wallet before you headed to the hardware store.  Dipstick.

Go after it, but

go after it smart, careful, clear and clean!   

Bright Blessings and a soft, nonsquishy landing!
