Interpreting Ace of Swords in a Love Reading
If you’re a tarot practitioner, you may know that Swords are not a romantic set.
The Aces are not simple cards when it comes to predicting the future. They are not as easy to read as other cards in the Minor Arcana. For example, the meaning of the Two of Cups or Three of Swords card usually depends on the rest of the cards in the spread.
Meanwhile, the first card of each suit represents the qualities of the suit in the purest and simplest way.
Swords indicate thinking and communication!
So, you can expect new ideas and big talks when Ace of Swords shows up in your reading.

1. Speaking your mind
Ace of Swords love means saying what you think.
When this card is drawn in your love reading, it means you feel the need of clarify something through honest conversations. Most of us don’t like to do the confrontation as partially because we’re afraid of finding out something bad. Try telling a man that you want to have a serious talk with him, and you’ll see him running away. Honestly, women are no better in this either.
They will tell their best friend all of their worries for several hours, while their partner has no clue about their problems and insecurities growing inside.
2. Giving you the courage
The tarot card here gives you the courage to say what you think, and it usually helps strengthen your relationship as well.
Not only do we search for solutions to resolve misunderstandings in the past, but we also show our partners that we are assertive, confident, and equal to them. A deep and honest conversation can rebalance the relationship.
Ace of Swords will appear when a couple is having problems in their relationship.
There may be conflicts or distance between each of them. As the tensions rise, the presence of this card in your reading marks a certain phase where you can solve and unravel problems. That’s when you reach a conclusion for everything happened to your love life and start a new chapter.
It can indicate that the misunderstanding of you and your partner is too big causing the inability to talk to each other. If you get the Ace of Swords card, perhaps you two already move on to a new stage of the relationship. However, it can also mean that you are ready to give a closure to your relationship with the other person and begin your own journey.
3. Showing you THAT moment
Another meaning that Ace of Swords can convey is the state of mind where things become clear, like “oh, that’s the problem,” or “that’s how I’m going to deal with this!"
With this card in a spread, you should take a moment to think, reason, and put all the pieces together in order to achieve the clarity. It can be either a great plan or a sad experience once realizing the truth.
Does this mean the relationship will be over?
Yes, if that’s what your free will choose!
Ace of Swords is a card giving you power, and whatever happening in the future almost certainly starts from you.
4. Getting wrong
When Ace of Swords love turns wrong?
Overall it will include positive aspects!
Even if it’s about ending a relationship, you will still have the feeling of victory with the presence of this card in the spread. However, Ace of Swords also has a negative side like other cards.
When Ace of Swords is in the reversed position, that’s when the communication between the two of you turns sour, and they tend to use harsh words to you. For readers who don’t interpret its reversed meaning, then its negativity will be pointed out by other cards in the spread. Depending on the Ace of Swords’ position in the reading, it can indicate not really great news or verbal abuse.
In other words, both are really tired of some problems, but Ace of Swords also indicates the strong will of each person. Therefore, both can overcome together if they put enough effort. However, the conflict will become worse if these two are stubborn and don’t listen to anyone else’s opinions but them.
No matter what the situation is, neither feels sorry for what they have treated each other.
Interestingly enough, the Ace of Swords can indicate a bit of pressure being present in the relationship. One of you is being too selfish, conservative and controlling. As a result, the other person is more likely to feel frustrated.
This card as well shows that two people love to argue with each other about many issues in life.
So, that’s what Ace of Swords love means in a love reading!
No matter what situation symbolized by Ace of Swords, everything will become clear like crystal at the end of the day. Either through honest conversations, or your own thought process, or news from the outside, you will know where you stand in the current relationship.
The result of this clarity can’t be found out immediately, as all the Ace cards contain many possibilities.
When seeing Ace of Swords in your tarot spread, remember that "information is the most powerful tool." Knowledge is the best weapon you can make use of to protect yourself or to move forward in life.
