Swords cards popping up in a Tarot spread when you’re seeking foofoo romantic results are often quite puzzling. So what does the Ace of Swords in a love reading mean?
It’s always a “go for it” card, the very name conjuring an image of your sleek paws tightening their grip on your (metaphorical) sword as you head out to battle, hew your way through nebulous crap or cut ties.
The Swords are Air – intellect, ideas, thought process – and the Ace is the primal, archetypal Air. When this Ace turns up, you are about to have a sensational breakthrough and the situation in play is – or will – evolve your thought style.
Shouldn’t You Be Getting Cups?
It’s also your cue to apply your mental powers to a situation, to be dispassionate and logical. At the very least, the Ace of Swords says fantastic concept. But it’s confusing to see it in a love reading. Shouldn’t you be getting Cups?
It means that the primary drive of the relationship or dalliance is to alter consciousness. Yours, theirs, everyone around you. New concepts emerge out of the connection or attraction. It’s a meeting of minds, massively inspirational and most likely beyond any simpatico rapport either of you has experienced before.
Don’t go prowling for nuance or signs of affection with this alliance. Focus on the cognitive energy between you, the brainstorming and ideas that you two conjure out of the aether.
‘Seize The Day’ Or ‘Get A Grip’?
All of the Aces symbolize determined new beginnings but with this one – the Ace of Air – the revamped mindset drives everything else. One idea, a single conversation or fresh intel could change the terrain.
Finally, take this card in a romantic reading as advice to seize the moment – if there is one – and communicate lucidly. If it’s crossing you or in a potentially negating position, the answer is succinct: get a grip. Less visualizing – more analyzing.
