Ace of Swords

Ace

previous      next

 

A hand issues from a cloud, grasping a sword, the point of which is encircled by a crown.

Divinatory Meanings: Triumph, the excessive degree in everything, conquest, triumph of force. It is a card of great force, in love as well as in hatred. The crown may carry a much higher significance than comes usually within the sphere of fortune-telling.

Reversed: The same, but the results are disastrous; another account says--conception, childbirth, augmentation, multiplicity.
