The King of Swords – music not war

September 18th, 2013 § 0 comments

King of Swords from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

In Tarot, the Suit of Swords can reflect some pretty difficult situations, things like conflict, sadness, treachery, and depression.

At the same time, especially in the Court Cards, this suit can represent mental clarity, discernment, focus, and intelligent communication.

The King and Queen of Swords are particularly good at turning the challenges of their suit into positive lessons and opportunities for mental expansion.

I got to thinking of the Sword family while watching the video below called, Turning Weapons Into Instruments by The Creators Project.

In it, artist Pedro Reyes shows us how he did just that – he turned weapons into instruments, and they sound beautiful.

It’s clear to me that Reyes is a true King of Swords. With mental mastery, he’s turned tools of destruction into beautiful songs that get us thinking.
