Ace of Swords Tarot Card Description

Swords are often seen as difficult cards because they are associated with rational thought, but this does not necessarily make us happy. Numerologically, the Ace of Swords has the value of one, which celebrates all that is single-minded, independent and innovative. It is also a card of new beginnings.

Upright Meaning

You need to recognise something that has been hidden from you until now; it might be sticking to what you believe to be true, a fight for justice or being frank with yourself. In the same way, the Ace of Swords asks you to be honest with yourself when facing new challenges. This is a time to be logical and calm, be ready to take action and do so quickly, do not prevaricate or indulge in self-doubt. If the past has been rather unkind to you, avoid being discouraged, you can succeed but you must go forward boldly and with confidence. You need to be resolute in your plans and be willing to push forward despite any problems you face. Nevertheless, you must be honest with yourself in relation to your abilities. This is also true of your interactions with other folks, you need to clear the air and be sure that you all want the same things, even if this causes some friction for a time. This is a good opportunity to resolve any difficulties you have with another person, analyse the problem, then get to action to resolve the situation. Yes, the Ace of Swords is a card which brings with it some challenges, but it also suggests you can achieve your goals as long as you are conscientious and hard working. The opportunities this card brings can make your dreams come true - but nothing will be handed to you on a plate.

Reversed Meaning

You are not Mr Spock, so logic can only get you so far; don’t let your head take precedence over your heart or instincts. Talking about feelings, you may be happy to be something of a cold fish, but those around you could be deeply hurt by your attitude. You have a tendency to over-analyse your situation. For the time being, try to follow your gut instincts more. Swords are the intellectual suite par excellence which is fine, and you could be blessed with being a brain box, but are you using your gifts in the right way, or are you using your intellect to manipulate or misguide others? Equally, is a cerebral someone using their brain power to put you on the wrong foot? Don’t be pushed around, if you believe there’s something dodgy about a densely worded document, get an independent professional to advise you.
