Today’s card is the Father of Swords from The Wild Unknown Tarot. Father Owl looks stern and strict but his standoff demeanor is softened by the beautiful colors of his sword.
This sword tell us he has seen it all, experienced a lot and all of this has made him a wise and knowledgeable father. One you can go to in times of need or trouble. You can talk with him about anything. Pick a color and he will tell you tales you never heard before and give you advice, gladly and sincerely.
I wonder why he has showed up today and I pulled Death. This is a card a of transformation, closure and letting go. Whenever we are confronted with the Death card it is so easy to shift in full emotional mode but Father of Swords reminds us stay clearheaded and to remember other Death occasions which weren’t all together as bad as we feared they would be. Death is what it is, unbiased and a part of everyone’s life whether we like it or not. Death is the only certainty we have in life. Maybe Father of Swords’ gift of perception and looking at a situation from all angles can be very helpful for us to learn to accept this undeniable fact of life.
