The Ace of Swords card is portrayed by a single glowing white hand that appears from a wisp of dark clouds from the left of the card. The hand holds a long double edged sword.
The background of the card is light grey with rocky terrains or mountains visible at a distance. That the hand holds the sword firmly is demonstrated by the white ray of lights exuding from the hand. The sword points upwards. Near the tip of the sword is a crown made of gold. On one side of the crown laurel leaves hang while on the other side are palm frond.
Upright Position: The Aces in general are about new beginnings. The Ace of Swords is probably an indication that a situation is about to begin that is double edged just like the Sword in the card. Only a sharp mind with intellect can emerge from such a situation. The card indicates focus and a burst of energy. Even if uncertainties exist, the sword would be able to cut through it. In a reading the card is considered to be a good omen to make new beginnings. Overall, the card is all about judicious and fair decisions, ambition and determination to execute.
Reversed Position: Reversed, the card would warn the seeker to postpone any new beginning – it may be a new project at work or a new relationship at the personal level. It may even indicate a lack of focus and ambition. The subject has probably reached a point where the mind is devoid of ideas.
