The Tarot Suit of Swords

The Minor Arcana of the Tarot is comprised of four suits: Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. Each suit is made up of cards numbered from one to ten and four court cards: King, Queen, Knight and Page. Swords represent the element of Air, and as such they cover thought, intellect, communication and conflict. The suit is shown below, as illustrated in the Marseilles Tarot.
