Ace of Swords

The Ace of Swords is closely connected to quick thinking and intellect.

All Swords are, in one way or another, related to the mental processes that take place within us.

The Ace, being the first of the Swords, illuminates these thoughts and quite often brings in new ideas alongside the foresight in how these ideas may be put into action.

If there is anything new you have been thinking lately then take note of it. Often a new idea takes hold by a stray thought here or there coming into play, and before you know it the idea is firmly fixed within your mind and you are on your way to a new course of action.

If you are learning something new or studying, the Ace of Swords is a great card to have as it shows you are thinking clearly and able to grasp new concepts and ideas.

Air signs are associated with Swords. The signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius all share an affinity to this suit and particularly the Ace, as it allows for the intellectual energy to flow smoothly. You may be spending time with like minded people where ideas can be discussed openly and easily. There may be something you need to sit down and get your head around and if so, now is the time to do it.

This card shows you are thinking with your head and not your heart. It denotes that any decision or action you are about to take will be based on logic and intellect, as opposed to emotions and feelings.

Do you have something to decide at the moment? If so, and you have received this card, then take note of what your brain is telling you to do, because this is one of those times when logic is knocking at your door.
