The suit of Swords is related essentially to the mind and rational thoughts and attitudes. Metaphorically speaking, the sword is a weapon for mental freedom that unchains us from ignorance. Similarly to a sharp sword, a sharp mind denotes a quality of a keen and discerning intellect.
For that reason we compare the symbolic sword to the classical element Air, active and enthusiastic, full of wisdom. Swords as mental concepts have deep contrary mental aspects, and just like physical swords, they have the capacity to create discord and chaos if used with cruel intentions. In the same way, they also protect and create peace and harmony.
