A hand emerging from the clouds clutches a sword crowned with a crown. The crown is decorated with palm and olive branches. In the background is a mountainous landscape.
A sword is an important magical symbol (magical sword, dagger). As a symbol of protection, it is depicted with the point down. Sometimes, if the point is pointed upwards, it is crowned with a crown: this is the symbol of the «sword of God». It's just that the sword is not depicted with the point up, because for ordinary people it can mean misfortune. However, in some decks such a false image occurs (the artist was not aware of this rule). Therefore, those who have the Ace of Swords depicted with an error, it is better to consider it «straight», i.e. its correct position — point down.
This rule does not apply to other cards of this suit.
The Ace of Swords is the element of air in its purest form. It represents thought and judgment. The sword destroys all illusions, helping to see things in their true light.
In the schedule, it can mean gaining clarity in something, whether it is solving a difficult task, clarifying relations with a partner or overcoming doubts. It is not for nothing that the Latin word «secare» also means «to understand», «to solve» (a problem), remember the Gordian knot.
The correct Ace of Swords means a decision, a solution to some problem, generally a sharp mind, or «getting rid of a burden», i.e. the birth of a child or a plan.
Inverted means that the problem is not solved, the «relieving of the burden» does not occur. Perhaps there is no solution to the task at all. Sometimes, on a purely everyday level, it can mean saying goodbye to someone or a stroke of Fate.
DESCRIPTION: A hand emerging from the clouds holds a sharp sword surrounded by a crown at the top. From the crown hangs an olive branch, representing the world, and a palm leaf, symbolizing victory. Above the hilt of the sword, the six letters Yod float in the air — six means balance. Element: Air.
EXPLANATION: This card represents conquest or triumph. Success is near. You are able to use your logic and intuition in solving matters that concern you, and your troubles will soon disappear. However, if you are involved in some new business, carefully plan your steps and do not act hastily.
REVERSED CARD MEANING: You allow your excessive power to influence your judgment. You are worried and depressed and expect the worst to happen. You are in danger of defeat.
LESSON FOR SELF-DEVELOPMENT: Ace is a sharp sword, so in this situation you should evaluate your personal power (power) in a global sense and not remain double-minded . Learn to respond intellectually and emotionally to the world around you. This means that you must develop your insight to the point where you are able to reconcile elements that may at first seem opposite to you.
Each of the Aces represents a certain chance. The Ace of Swords corresponds to the higher Mind, that power of cognition that leads to clarity, consistency, and the ability to make decisions. In contrast to the next card (Two of Swords), which symbolizes 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 mind that we have must be directed to penetrating the essence of the problem, without losing sight of the overall picture, without drowning the problem in a dispute about the form, but looking at the very content of the problem and not dismissing it by pressing on it as "insignificant " says this card.
WORK AND CAREER: A clear, clear idea of your business, which allows you to make completely unambiguous decisions, as well as a sign of a close solution to some confusing problem. Some fresh stream that gives a new stimulus to a routine business or moves the stalled negotiations from a standstill. Or a conversation that will put everything in its place and revive the «suffocating» atmosphere. The symbolism of sharpness and separation associated with this card may mean a deliberate decision to part ways with a former job.
CONSCIOUSNESS: Here this Ace shows that we need to take a new approach to a problem that has long seemed insoluble to us, to divide it into separate, accessible parts for analysis and deal with them one by one: just like this we will be able to solve the whole problem in general. Thanks to this ability to analyze and synthesize, we can find a way out of confusing situations, free ourselves from addictions of various kinds, and begin to move purposefully on a new path.
PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS: The Ace of Swords can mean here a serious conversation that will bring freedom, or solving (and overcoming) a deep problem. In addition, a clear and sober look at the things with which this card is connected can mean liberation from illusions, that is, in the end, the dissolution of the union.

Meaning and inner content of the Ace of Swords arcana
Tarot aces are traditionally considered to embody the qualities of an astrological element associated with a certain suit. The Ace of Swords Tarot in normal orientation means clarity of thought and intellectual focus. Practically, this means that the Client has decisively overcome the obstacles on his way, thanks to his willpower, and he is entering a new period in his life, which will bring him a well-deserved reward.
The Ace of Swords tarot card is triumph, prosperity, conquest, fertility. Birth (child, ideas, new hobby). Tremendous power has been used and/or can be used now in any area you choose. Extreme feelings related to this situation and the people around you; an excess of everything connected with it. You are on the crest of a wave.
The inverted Ace of Swords Tarot means that the Client acts very intelligently in business, but in his relations with people he is rude and despotic and does not take into account their feelings in pursuit of his goals. In some situation, the Client may abuse his intellectual advantage, resorting to dishonest deals. Problems with the law or with the authorities are also possible.
An inverted Ace of Swords tarot card can mean the same thing as a straight one, but with disastrous consequences for the inquirers. You have won a great victory, but soon there will be, if not already, reasons to regret it. The beginning of strained relationships and emotional conflicts with others and even with oneself.

In addition, the Ace of Swords tarot card is a card of prosperity and fertility. Triumph can relate to any aspect of your life: work, love, financial affairs, any activity that captivated you. In fact, in this suit you have started where others finish: all your goals seem or are actually achieved.

Вместе с Отшельником перевернутый Туз Мечей означает неспособность человека разобраться в себе, с Шутом – большую глупость, с Повешенным – погрязание в противоречиях.
Если находимся с девушкой в длительной ссоре и на вопрос о попытке помириться выпадает Туз Мечей. И в кельтском кресте выпадает последней картой итога Туз Мечей. Что это значит — удар судьбы, разрыв отношений или триумф?
Сделайте, пожалуйста, статью чем отличается Туз Пик в игральных картах и Туз Мечей в Таро!
Ещё на успех примирения сегодня выпали 10 кубков перевёрнутая и Башня.
Башня похожа на Туз Пик. А чем отличается Туз Мечей?
Если вы делаете несколько раскладов на одно и то же событие, то точность каждого будет сильно падать. В раскладе информацию дают не карты, а тот кто делает расклад. Если человек не честен с собой, то и карты не будут с ним честными. Собственно правильную интерпретацию может делать только тот человек который делал расклад если у него хватает смелости смотреть на правду, а не пытаться увидеть желаемое.
Игральными картами не занимаюсь, образы слишко замусореные и интерпретация будет слишком скакать от человека к человеку.
Да. Вы правы. Часто спрашиваю про одну и ту же ситуацию. Под предлогом «А что на данный момент происходит?».
В данной ситуации, когда влюблен в девушку сложно мыслить логически и получается делать ошибки в общении. А соперник будучи психологом воспользовался ситуацией и поймал девушку в момент ссоры и печали. Причем он уже несколько раз в разводе был. Разрушил все свои семьи и сюда залез.
И теперь мне выпадает Башня, а у них сначала была Императрица в прямом, а теперь в перевёрнутом положении. Паж мечей вот появился.
Смириться сложно. Влюбленность убрать не просто.
Ну... мой опыт говорит что в любовном треугольнике побеждает тот, кто первым из него уходит. Но только не так чтоб вернуться, а окончательно и безповоротно, не оглядываясь назад.
Затем следует заняться собой: спорт, хорошая работа, отдых ну и конечно другие девушки.
Таро тут не помошник. Только собственная воля и самоуважение.
