Wednesday 7th August: King of Swords

On this, the first day of my summer holidays, it is good to see this particular arcana appear once again as I am working today to catch up on some of my neglected projects. Last week, when the King of Swords appeared, I wrote that,

The King of Swords calls upon us to use our powers of cogitation to make clear and definite plans and to prepare thoroughly for the coming season.

Yesterday’s flighty Seven of Swords is now framed by two kings, the fruitful King of Pentacles, and the intellectual King of Swords, which suggest to me that the creative quality of the Seven of Swords can be put to use to break down the restrictive structures and old habits embodied by the (16) Tower to create fresh new and profitable perspectives and plans, and to start work on them right away.
