Self-Care with Knight of Swords

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Knight of Swords.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-s12-01

If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean to be mindful of the balance between your ego and your mind.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is track your behavior in your journal and evaluate it for signs of egoic hijacking in terms of the intellect.

Do you tend to treat others as intellectually inferior? Are you quick to insist that your perspective is the only one that is correct? What about opinions? Do you push yours upon others while dismissing theirs? How open-minded are you really? Do you honestly give the thoughts, ideas, and perspectives of others a fair chance?


Do You have any Self-Care Activity Ideas to Suggest?
