This is clarity, a breakthrough, separation (dissection by the blow of a sword), penetration (blades into the flesh). The inextricable link of victory and suffering. The victory of the Sword is always the elimination of convenient half-heartedness, laziness, self-pity.

The  Ace of Swords may indicate the beginning of a new intellectual project. Since Swords are associated with strife, conflict and difficulty, this card indicates the likelihood of a promising project that may arise from an adversity. 

The traditional meaning of this card is “strength in adversity”: there would be no happiness, but misfortune helped. To overcome all obstacles and difficulties, you need discipline and determination. Inevitable and painful life changes can start something positive. 

You have great power at your disposal. You can focus your mind and efforts on achieving a goal. You need logic, balance and order. Sometimes this card indicates that legal intervention is needed to resolve the conflict.

In an inverted position, the Ace of Swords card draws its energy onto itself, symbolizing diseases and destruction in all kinds of manifestations. 

In the worst case, an Ace of Swords can mean an erosion of vitality, in principle, a fatal outcome. However, this is a very rare occurrence. 

You  may be in a situation where you are being used. It seems that you are putting in much more energy than is necessary to achieve your goals. 

Be careful: do not overdo it, do not burn bridges behind you. When the Ace of Swords appears in the layout, it usually indicates that you are throwing too much out of your life, sometimes it is completely unnecessary. 

Remember, you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. You may need to end a relationship in which your partner is being cruel or unfair to you. Perhaps sometime you have injured another, and now it is your turn to suffer. 

If your question was about health, this card warns that you may injure yourself with a sharp object or experience complications after surgery. 

Sometimes the appearance of this card symbolizes conception, and under certain Arcana – the birth of a child.

Something arises and begins to ripen. It is difficult to indicate the clear difference between the direct and inverted position of the ACE OF SWORDS. We can only say that the upright position is stronger than the upturned one.

The ACE of SWORDS is considered both as the embryo of the Force, and as the medium that perceived this embryo. With this approach, you need to have a clear understanding of the boundary between the seed and the medium. Seed is maximally separated from the environment. It has not yet sprouted into it. The environment can destroy the seed or the seed – actively affect the environment.


The suit of SWORDS also symbolizes the direction. The whole question is where the action of the Force will be directed, outward or inward.


At body level, an ACE of SWORDS may indicate the beginning of passion, illness, or any undertaking. We can say that the ACE of SWORDS symbolizes a new action or a new volitional act. Through ACE of SWORDS initiation can also go, that is, a connection to something new. On the whole, ACE OF SWORDS is the most “energy” card of JUNIOR ARCANA.

Ace of Swords Symbolism (Raider Waite)

Ace of Swords in Raider Waite Tarot Deck depict a hand coming out of a cloud squeezes a sword, the tip of which is surrounded by a crown.

Each of the Aces represents a chance. The Ace of Swords corresponds to a higher Reason, that power of knowledge that leads to clarity, consistency and the ability to make decisions. In contrast to the next card (Two of Swords), symbolizing the destructive power of doubt, here the work of the mind is carried out in the most pure, bright and liberating form. 

All the sharpness of the mind that we have should be directed at penetrating into the essence of the problem, without losing sight of the general picture, without drowning the problem in the debate about words and not brushing it off “for insignificance,” this card says.
