“One must marry one’s feelings to one’s beliefs and ideas. That is probably the only way to achieve a measure of harmony in one’s life.” Napoleon Hill

Today’s Tarot is the Prince of Swords, associated with Air in Air. (As the equivalent position to the Page, I’d normally associate him with Earth in air, but this is a Thoth-style deck with Thoth-style attributions.) Holding both a sword and a sickle, this fellow slays his ideas almost as fast as they arrive. He’s got the whole “thinking something to death” down pat!

When you don’t have full information, it’s easy to conjure up ideas to fill in the blanks, one after another making up a flurry of mental activity that doesn’t really mean much of anything. The prince here reminds us that all ideas are not created equally, but they may be getting equal attention. Look in your life for what he’s missing: the emotional threads running through the ideas, to help give weight (read: energy) to those worth feeding. Let the others go, cutting them from your life.

Time to call on some Earthy superpowers! Channel your inner Virgo (everybody’s got Mercury SOMEWHERE) to discern, dissect, and discriminate your ideas. Group like-minded thoughts together to get a feel for the general direction of the energy. Organize, classify, and prioritize here, and you’ll manage to ground some of those ideas into something that resembles a reality, now or soon.

The Prince of Swords is brilliant, and has outstanding powers of reason and perception. USE those powers to your full advantage by discriminating, and you’ll be adding weight to the best ideas. That’s where you can move ahead.

You have a head full of ideas that need sorting? (I do!)

  1. “Thinking it to death?” HAHAHA-the title alone says it all. This is part of my problem – I OVER analyze everything, some more than others but it’s still a big part of me.

    “When you don’t have full information, it’s easy to conjure up ideas to fill in the blanks, one after another making up a flurry of mental activity that doesn’t really mean much of anything.”
