solution by strength, wands meaning power, and cups meaning creation, emotions.
All Aces indicate the beginning of a new phase, new undertakings, projects.

Swords – law enforcement; legal institutions; Cups – emotions, creation. In the reversed position, they
mean a waste of energy in the corresponding field.

exception is the Eight of Swords that predicts crises and insoluble problems. Its reversed meaning is the
Nines indicate that some undertaking will be completed successfully, while in the reversed position they
mean inability to implement some plans. The Nine of Swords in any position means betrayal, troubles.
Tens mean the time to rest on one’s laurels. In the reversed position, they mean inability to succeed.
The Ten of Swords is one of the worst cards in the deck. It means serious failures, and the meaning
doesn’t change in the reversed position.
