Knight of Swords in the Wizards Tarot

This weekend I finally purchased the Wizards Tarot by Corrine Kenner. Hooray! Unfortunately, when I took it to lunch and went through the deck, there were two Knight of Swords cards. What was worse is that the 10 of Cups was missing.

I had a good, long laugh at this. The Knight of Swords often comes up for me when I am too much in my head, forging along doing projects that may or may not be the best idea for me. This has been happening a lot in my business, where it has been “full steam ahead” for some time. Part of this has been my exploration of what I really want to do with this business and how I can best help other people.

Not all of it has worked out. Not all of it has felt right. But I have learned a TON from it, and can now help advise other people on the perils out there.

But back to my new deck: there was no 10 of Cups. If you’ve read my blogs in the past, you have heard me begrudge that I am not a “feelings” or “emotions” person. I have had a lot of trouble connecting with this aspect of myself, and for a while did a Mind, Body, Spirit, and Feelings spread every day. While it was somewhat helpful, I always hated turning over that last card. Even today I completely resist doing that spread. So for the 10 of Cups, which is often about emotional completeness, happy families, and the like to go missing, well, let’s not get too deep in analyzing that.

I will say that I was able to trade the deck at the store for a new one. A complete one. While Llewellyn (the publishing company) would have undoubtedly sent me a replacement card I didn’t feel like going through the rigamarole if I didn’t have to. Now my happy little complete Wizard’s Tarot is here.

I think I’ll do a Mind, Body, Spirit, and Emotions spread today and see what’s what.

Have you ever gotten a deck with missing, torn, or messed up cards? What did you do? Did it mean anything in your life or business? Let me know in the comments below.

    Hi Michelle,

    How very interesting to have a card missing! That is like the cards pulling out a big megaphone to speak to you, isn’t it? lol… How cool is that! I have had readings where we were playing with it and repulling cards just to be cantankerous and getting the same dang card. When I do several readings in a row, I often find the same cards coming up!

    Now that you have the Ten of Cups returned, perhaps it might be interesting to sit with it and ask it to tell you things? Maybe to ask it why it went away? That might be interesting. Just a thought!

    I am so excited to have discovered your blog. You and I have so much in common. I really LOVE that you are working with the metaphysical business owners to help them with their businesses. I was trying to do that for a while and then realized that I really needed to work on myself first. My blog right now is not a business at all. It will be soon, but for right now I am just writing and connecting with people who want to develop themselves. It is all so fun… blogging, business and diving into our potential!

      Oh, I know exactly why it wasn’t there, Amy. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’ll have to check out your blog more. It will be interesting to see what business you make of it!

    Gosh that must have been amusing and reflective at the same time. I once bought an Oracle card deck for my partner, he had been worrying about money and the deck had two abundance cards in the pack. We loved that and placed one in his workspace.

    I really need to take more time out to “play” with my cards and get requainted with them. How do you lay out the cards for the Mind, Body, Spirit & Emotions spread? just 1, 2, 3, 4 in a row or do you lay them out with the directions (north south east west)?

      I do them from left to right, but if the directions feel better to you, go for it! There are no rules in Tarot. Anyone who tells you there is a “right” way to do it is either an egomaniac or an outright liar. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is what I love so much about Tarot – it keeps us thinking with symbols so we’re always taking a deeper look at who we are, no matter what causes the reflective moment.

    Never had a misprinted/mispackaged deck, but if I keep collecting like I’ve been I’m sure it’s only a matter of time!

    I don’t know of any way I can remove you. However, there should be an option to do so in any email you get. It may be really small and at the bottom of the email. I’ll ask around my business groups and see if I can find anything out about it, but it should be in your control. ๐Ÿ™‚

    After I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any method you’ll be able to remove me from that service? Thanks!…
