Knave of Swords


1. Swords have two edges, those who have them have two sides to their nature.

2. Tricks and manipulation hide one's intent.
(Light and dark side of the Fey conflict with the plentitude of rings ((completeness)) -- why is he doing this?)

3. A sword unheld is an uncertain outcome in the making.

1. The Fey has no fear as he is about to catch the sword from the blade end, not the hilt end.

2. The Fey seems burdened by the large ring belt he is wearing.

3. The sky appears to be raining some sort of magical dust.

Hope I got the gestalt idea right: First step - just description of three different aspects of the card

Knave of Swords

1 - The fey shows the dark and the light sides of thoughts in his body's colours. He has chosen the right (conscious) side as the light one - quite typical for an air-type/thinker.

2 - The fey is having the sword floating free in the air. Concentration on this task. Maybe he's just developing the 3rd eye for control.

3 - He has some rings on a belt tied around his waist. Seems that he lost the keys - or hasn't found them yet.

Knave of swords-

He is split in two like ying and yang, and whale he yields a sword he dose not use it in hast.

His sword is floating but seems to be under his control. Which shows that he is quit skilled not only physically but also mentally!

He has circle rings all about him, I always think of the snake eating his tale the circle of life. To have soo many he must have respect for the delicacy of life its self.

Knave of Swords


1. Young Fey has problems with arm coordination.

2. Fey in training realises he might perform better if he didn't wear so much jewellery.

3. Fey loses his grip on the sword and it flies from his hand.

Is a summation now due ?


Let's see if it is possible to summarize what has been said so far relative to the Knave of Swords.

COORDINATION, BALANCE problems: 5
JEWELRY, RINGS issues: 4
GRIP ON SWORD: 3
DUALITY: 3
NO FEAR: 1
RAINING: 1
TRICKS, TRICKERY: 3
MISC.: 1

This is how I see the offered statements in a summarized form. Using the sword and the Fey's grip (or lack thereof) on the sword seems to be the primary issue. The number of rings around the Fey's waist seems to also be important. Duality and trickery are also noted.

This Knave is either highly confident or quite reckless about his own and other's safety. His lack of concern about the promised completeness of life (rings) suggests that he feels he has nine lives like a cat has. Trickery and suspicion of his motives and intent might keep others a little distant from him.

Is this the sort of "gestalt" view that you were expecting, Luna?

QUESTIONS~


The Fey has no fear as he is about to catch the sword from the blade end, not the hilt end.
-why is he fearless?
-why would he catch the blade?
-why is he twirling the sword?

The Fey seems burdened by the large ring belt he is wearing.-Why does he wear the belt?
-what are the rings for?
-why is the sword in the air?

Swords have two edges, those who have them have two sides to their nature.
-what is the blue side?
-what is the purple side?
-what is fey doing with the sword?

1 - He has some rings on a belt tied around his waist. Seems that he lost the keys - or hasn't found them yet.
- Were the keys important to the fey?
- If the keys are gone, why doesn't he just remove the rings?
- Is the Fey looking hard for the lost keys?

2 - circus fey is preforming his juggling act
- Why didn't he choose the highwire act instead?
- When will he be ready to juggle a second sword?
- Is his insurance premium paid up for doing such an act?

3 - His sword is floating but seems to be under his control. Which shows that he is quit skilled not only physically but also mentally!
- The sword is under control, but what will it be used for?
- How hard was it to train for this?
- Why a sword and not a gun?
