Minor Arcana Suit of Swords Keywords at a Glance
The quickest and easiest way to start learning the Tarot is to use keywords and phrases, which provide an essence of the core meaning, and can act as a memory jogger to help trigger the full interpretation in your mind. They can also be useful when dealing with larger spreads, such as the Life Spread and Anchor, to gain a quick overview as you lay out the cards.
The keywords shown here are not intended to replace the full interpretation, which can be found in more detail in the Easy Tarot Handbook, and you'll also find full Tarot Cheat Sheets for the Major and Minor Arcana (pages 216 - 219).
On the site you'll find some keywords included in the Tarot Card Meanings and Combinations section. The weekly Tarot Trends are designed to help you get to grips with how the cards interact in groups to create Tarot combinations, whilst the free Daily Card can also help to become more familiar with the meanings.
You can view the cards individually, play as a slideshow, or click on a thumb nail below to view. Place cursor over the card to begin.
