Score!  As I said, the swords are missing from our Bowling Ball's mountebank's description, and according to an aquarian age site, "The Celestial Sword may be seen in the constellation of Cygnus the Swan, also known as the Northern Cross" so there is a connection between Cygnus and the sword suit of the tarot.  This is also associated with the Hanged Man, though I don't know how authoritative the mysticism and mythology of tarot actually is.

Both Deneb and the Coalsack nebula are part of the Cygnus constellation, the swan, which does most resemble a cross.  Interesting.
