ACE OF SWORDS in The RIDER WAITE Deck of Tarot Cards
Ideas, new beginnings, success, willpower, focus.
A hand holds a sword, which has a crown on the top and the wreath of success in the crown. As with all the Aces, this is a card of beginnings. Beware, it can be a double edged sword.
The card represents a new beginning, new ideas, a new (or renewed) force of will and mental energy. This is a card of victory and success.
This card often indicates new focus and increased clarity around a decision. This is also an indication that you have the strength and power within your own hands to accomplish whatever needs to be done.
The opportunities offered by the Ace of Swords are likely to be challenging and you will probably have to call on the full force of your will or personality to achieve your goals. However the crown at the top of the sword indicates success.
It indicates the need for courage, resourcefulness and determination. It will also call for you an honest and ethical approach. There is often a clear sense of understanding of what needs to be done and an ability to cut through irrelevant things.
The Ace of Swords can also point to truth and justice, to championing a cause and standing up for what you believe to be right.
With abundant blessings.
