Ace of Swords

Ace of Swords

Swords: Action, Ambition, Aggression, Force, Movement, Struggle, Strife

Interpretation

  • Freedom 
  • Beginning 
  • Overcoming 
  • Conquest 
  • Champion 

Powerful forces are at work here that will help you overcome your adversities. A new champion will arise bringing with him new freedoms. All Aces are new beginnings and this one could very well be announcing the birth of a child with these very same qualities. Watch for these new developments over the winter months.

Reversed

  • Set Backs 
  • Struggle 
  • Aggression 
  • Vanquished 
  • Delays 

To much power has the potential to corrupt us. Excessive force and domination causes the oppressed to revolt. Their struggle becomes the new cause. Your actions are fueling their will to resist. Your plans are delayed because of this. You,  who were once the victor,  may now become the vanquished. A balance between mercy and severity is needed. There is a hint of infertility here.
