All swords carry an association to the element of air. Swords deal with thoughts and the working through of ideas. This extends to communication, but the kind of communication shown by the sword cards is not necessarily rooted in emotion and would traditionally indicate a certain level of detachment from feeling. Swords CAN and Do show up in readings which are done when life circumstances are difficult and will reflect the state of mind of the person having the reading. Swords don't represent physical buildings or feelings; they show your mental well-being and response TO the situations and people around you.
