(Applies to the upright position)

The Symbolism of the Tarot Card:

A disembodied, divine hand brandishes a sword. The sword is crowned by a majestic wreathed crown. Six small "Yod" symbols are above the hilt, suggesting divinity; Yod is the Hebrew letter "Y" and the first letter in the unspoken name of God of Judaism. Jagged peaks rise in the desolate landscape below, suggesting isolation. Given the presence of the Hebrew Yods, the crown may suggest the Kabbalastic Sphere Kether, which represents the most divine of the divine.

The Meaning of the Tarot Card:

The pure isolation needed in order to achieve spiritual awareness. Conquest over inner turmoil. Great force in any venture, whether spiritual, intellectual, or otherwise. Victory in warfare. Complete focus and awareness lead to gain. Mastery over one's self and surroundings.
