Music & Tarot – Ace of Swords

Music speaks to the majority of us. So what better way to learn the Tarot than to connect each card with a specific song? While there are so many to choose from, I have been attempting to do just that!


Typically depicted as a single sword with a crown, this card represents catalyst, forced change. The spark that drives you to action.

  • Determination
  • Conquest
  • Action
  • Clarity of thought/mental clarity
  • Great Force
  • Achievement
  • Victory
  • Success
  • Intellect
  • Breakthrough
  • Truth
  • Bravery


Eye of the Tiger – Survivor

Do I even need to explain this one? What better song than the one from the Rocky movies (also, Dean Winchester slays it). The lyrics of this song are all about determination and working hard to win. If that isn’t enough, Sylvester Stalone working his ass off to win should cinch it.

Tell me about your song choice.

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

My Song Choice

Something Like That – Tim McGraw

I chose this song because it is the epitome of new love! The lyrics take you through the classic tale of teenage love. But underlying this sweet story is the journey of working towards a goal and achieving it. The feeling you get when you reach your goal and the lifetime impression it leaves on you. I feel this is the perfect representation of the Ace of Cups! What song would you choose?

Check back next Thursday for the next card!

I worked so hard for that first kiss
And a heart don’t forget something like that

Tim McGraw
