“I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.” Robert E. Lee
It’s nice to be a dreamer sometimes—head in the clouds, playing “what if,” thinking, thinking, thinking about all sorts of wonderful things. Airy-fairy intellectualization has it’s place in the natural order of the Universe. Ideas ARE important.
But are you getting so caught up in the ideas that you miss the practical (Pentacles), emotional (Cups) or creative (Wands) implications of your ideas (Swords)?
The Knave/Page of Swords is Earth in Air. Air energy can become a little too detached at times, even when the ideas are clear and technically correct.
I often see this guy inverted as a reminder to watch the mouth! The words can carry more weight than you realize, perhaps having an impact that was not intended.
But even more, he can advise us to watch our thoughts! Thought energy is the first ingredient in manifesting reality. It’s lighter and finer than the energy created with words, which in turn is lighter and finer than the energy created with action. All of this is lighter and finer than what we see as physical reality, but it’s all part of the same whole.
If you find yourself with uncomfortable thoughts, look to readjust them. Use the Knave’s intellectual prowess to reframe and redefine. Maybe that sounds lame, but it’s a more powerful technique than most realize.
Filter out thoughts that don’t support the life you want to live, and make sure your words support your thoughts. Make sure your thoughts and words add to what you want, and not inadvertently tear it down.
That helps aright this young fellow so he grows up in the way you’d hope: effective, kind and sharp at a tack. Upright, he can cut through a lot of dredge to find his treasures.
Do you thoughts and words tend to support what you want in your life?
