Key Words: the earthly aspect of air; out of the clouds into clarity; victory over moods; rebellion
The Princess of Swords represents a fresh intellectual clarity which shakes everything up. She has just demolished the old altar, which explodes, sending clouds of smoke, rubble and ash into the air. When intellectual and spiritual (air) renewal meet the element earth, the altars of old ideals are destroyed, and the smoke will soon settle, leaving room for clarity.
Every change, every inner conflict you experience sends smoke and ash (emotions and moods) flying into the air. But the Princess of Swords does not allow the dust, caused by the destruction of the old and useless, to cloud the clarity of her vision! She uses her sword to sweep away moods and disruptive thoughts which arise. She is resolute and aggressive, dealing well with practical issues, particularly when they include contradictory or paradoxical elements.
