The Ace of Swords

Written By Expert Billy All In The Cards

The Suit of Swords deals directly with ideas, plans, hopes, and at some level, dreams and aspirations. The Ace of Swords Tarot card is the first card in the suit. As such it deals with fresh new starts, new ideas, hopes, and plans. When you see the Ace of Swords towards the beginning of your Tarot consult, in what I consider the foundational positions of the consult, it represents the start of a particular train of thought in regards to the situation or interaction. Upright, it will denote fresh new positive ideas. Reversed, it will denote… shall we say, less than the most positive ideas. It’s not ALWAYS negative, just not the most well thought-out concepts.

To see it show up later in a consult, in the future or predictive positions, it shows us a change from one frame of mind to another. Depending on the surrounding cards, this denotes changes to the actions stemming from the ideas, which can indicate change to the direction the situation or interaction is heading, from that particular point forward. The true power of the Ace of Swords lies in its ability to take concepts, dreams, or hopes and manifest them into actual actions. It is in the direct impact that thoughts which are intangible can have a direct and lasting impact on the path a particular situation or interaction takes.

Ask Cristina!

Hi Cristina,

I'm hoping you can help me. I have a huge crush on two guys at work. One is married and the other one is single, but he is younger than me. I talk to both guys every day, but lately it seems the younger guy, Nate, is always talking to me and his smile and voice make me all tingly. The other guy, Ron, is married, but not in a happy marriage, yet I get the feeling from him he is all about his "image" and I deserve better than to be treated like a second banana by him. I have tried every dating site: and and I can't seem to get a guy to save my life. I don't know what to do. Everyone is telling me to "live my life and if it's meant to be it's meant to be." Can you give me some direction?

Thank you.

Blessings my dear, and thank you for allowing me to do a reading for you today. As I look at the many questions you ask, I feel that you already know the answers. You are highly intuitive and have a strong sense of things and can even predict the final outcome of situations yourself. But I see you do need to sort through all this to figure out the best outcome for yourself.

This strong attraction that you have for these two guys comes from the simple truth that your social world at this time is all tied to work, so naturally you'll be attracted to people at work. Because for you, your routine involves basically work and home -- even though you have outside interests and can be incredibly fun to be with, work and home take up most of your time.

With that said I don't see a future with either one of these guys. I feel the younger one does desire you most, but I feel you know this would be a short-term affair. The possibilities with the married man... well it would take a book to write how wrong for you it would be. All the negative energy of the married man, his unhappiness, his frustration, problems with his family, all would infiltrate into your life and reality and you have to ask yourself, do you really need that?

I know you have tried all the dating sites, but try something else. I see when your routine changes, the universe will bring you someone totally different into your life who matches your spirit perfectly. Expand your interests, break from the work and home routine and get involved in life. Take on a hobby, a class, the gym or just something else that involves you in loving life...and this vibration from you will attract the right man into your life. At the end of the day, I don't see you old and alone.
