Shadowscapes Day 3: King of Swords

Today’s card is King of Swords.

Coincidentally, I drew the companion to the card I drew yesterday, the Queen of Swords. They have some similarities in the way they are led by truth and send birds to fly away and bring their findings back to them.

According to Shadowscapes Companion, the owl and twin ravens in the image “are the balance of night and day. They are the sharp clarity of the sun, and the owl is the truth that can only be heard distinctly in velvety light of stars and moon.”

I think the avian companions, flying, and balance of night and day, art and science resonate with me in this card. It gives a feeling of completion and cycles that I’m trying to embrace in my life.
