Universal Fantasy – Ace of Swords

November 2, 2008 § Leave a comment

My first daily draw with the Universal Fantasy is the Ace of Swords – one of my favourite cards in the deck.

A single sword is displayed in huge echoing halls. I can hear footsteps and silence. The sword points up, to high ideals, and is fixed to the wall. Truth is eternal? Yet displayed here, in this museum-like building, suggests that the sword represents an ideal that is difficult to aspire to in everyday life. It is like a relic of some great but long-forgotten empire. One can walk round it and admire it, but not hold it in one’s hands.
