The Knight of Swords as a Daily Tarot Card

In a nutshell: “Ideas flow from you like lightning bolts. It’s a day of mental madness, brilliance & opportunity. Don’t waste the potential of this energy.”
Hold onto your hats today as your mind will be as sharp as Einstein and as quick as Michael Schumacher.
You may at times even think you’re going mad from mental overload. Doc, from Back to the Future is a good example of the creative genius in the air today.
The Prince of Swords is all about the intellect and it will feel at times today that it has a life force all its own. You may at times feel like a spectator to your own life.
This doesn’t have to be a bad thing, channel this mental energy and you will have one of the most satisfying and productive days you’ve had in a long time.
That won’t be easy though, the Prince of Swords isn’t an easy character to pin down. He’s erratic and unpredictable and that is how your day will potentially play out.
This is a very mentally creative card and so expect lots of ideas today to just flow through you like Niagara Falls. There’s no guarantee you’ll get any of them done, you’re as likely to disregard them as soon as you have them, but that won’t stop them coming.
It might be a good idea to write down all the ideas that come to you, in their raw form and all the adjustments, so you can reassess them when you’re in a mentally calmer state. If you do that though, be careful not to let your inner naysayer get in the way of the potential that flew from your active and brilliant mind today.
Lightning bolts of ideas, realisations, eurekas and a-ha’s all come from a higher vibrational plane than this one. While this may be an exhausting day, remember you are also being blessed with the solutions to many problems and being gifted with new ideas that may change your life.
Never look a gift horse in the mouth, they say. And today, you’re mental gifts are aplenty.
Just hold onto your hat, and your sanity too…
