Ace of Swords

     The Ace of Swords is one of the cards of the Minor Arcana, however I have classified it as a Royal because it, like all other aces, is the highest achievement of which can be attained of this particular suit. This, like all other aces, represents the highest spiritual self. Depicted on this card is a hand issuing from the clouds grasping the hilt of a sword. The point of the sword is encircled with a crown, an olive and laurel leaf hang from the crown. Toungues of fire fall from the sky When this card comes into your spread it indicates the entirety of emotions and actions at their hightest level. It can represent the greatest love or greatest hatred. This card is also a fertility card.

     There is a myriad of symbolisms on this and many of the other cards in both the major and minor arcana. In order to present a comprehensive and easy to use as a reference source set of pages for this and other cards, I will refrain from going into great detail regarding the individual symbols on the cards. On a future date I will go over the more explicit aspects of them. If you have a question regarding a particular symbol you can email me at Tamerin.
