From the Ancient Egyptian Tarot
This card can be a bit of a challenging one, as it often shows up when someone is masking their own insecurities with aggression. Of course, our natural response to an attack is to be hostile in return, but the Princess of Swords indicates that kindness is needed here, and that understanding will pay dividends.
It can also refer to our own insecurities and fears. If you are hesitating at the beginning of a new venture because of the memory of past hurt or failures, the Princess of Swords is suggesting that your fears may well be unfounded. This is only serving to hold you back from fulfilling your true potential, and if you have the courage to put the past behind you, all manner of new beginnings will start to open up to you.
