Detailed meanings for the Ace of Spades​

Ace of spades meaning french deck


The Ace of Spades, as well as the Ace of Clubs, is one of the most favourable cards. It means above all: Stocks, financial papers. It also announces forbidden pleasure, success with the girl or woman loved; passionate and sexually voracious love, marriage, happy future.

When reversed, this card means all the matters related to love. However, depending on its surroundings, Ace of spades becomes a rather dark omen: luck will not last, sadness will follow joy, the beloved woman will leave you behind, the man will deceive his mistress or his wife, passionate sex will turn into abuse; discord will reign in the household.

Despite these poor prognoses, this card is so good that everything it announces as bad will only be temporary, and the pain will turn into joy through other unforeseen circumstances, which will change the face of things.

Ace of spades

Ace of SpadesUpright.  

This card, coming out in natural position, and intervening between the representative cards of a male and female, relates wholly to love affairs. When accompanied by the ten of spades it shows that an intrigue will be accompanied with a deal of sorrow and affliction, and will ultimately end in abandonment under most disastrous circumstances.

One of the primary significations of this card is a paper or document, chiefly appertaining to law matters, such as warrants for arrest, writs, subpoenas and legal pleadings.

Another is that of a ship, or other means of conveyance by water, particularly when accompanied by the eight of clubs, reversed, which betokens the consultant to be on the eve of a sea voyage, or other journey over water of some description.

Ace of SpadesReversed.  

When in the oracle of a married consultant, this card appears reversed, and near to her representative, its primary signification is pregnancy, which in her case can be expressed by the following synonyms:

Conception; maternity; accouchement; childbirth.

From this we derive a secondary signification, applicable to other things, for which we employ correspondent synonyms:

Enlargement; engenderment; fecundity; fertilization; production; composition; increase; augmentation; multiplication; deliverance; parturition; growth; addition.

When reversed and accompanied by the knave of clubs, likewise reversed, this card is a premonitor of death.

The general secondary signification of this card, when reversed and in the body of the oracle, is a fall, whence we have:

Decadence; decline; discouragement; dissipation; ravage; ruin; demolition; destruction; bankruptcy; error; fault; overwhelming sorrows; perdition; an abyss; precipice; gulf; waterfall; disgrace; shame.

Ace of spades English Cartomancy meaning

As Master – Card, the Ace of spades figures a special Misfortune, Unhappiness, or Hurt to one’s life, by no means avoidable, and perhaps not discernible at once.

Influenced by the King of its like suit, sudden: by the Queen, long continuing ere complete; by the Knave, Ill – Fortune through Persons ; by the ten, through concurrence of sundry events.

By any other spade, sudden.

By a Heart, Ill-Fortune in the Affection.

By the Diamond, in the eye of Others, in society, money or art.

By a Club, to our fear.

Postponement of something you were sure to get. Cancellation of business offer, job offer, university scholarship.

Ace of Swords meaning tarot


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.

Today’s card reading is the Three Free Fortunes. It is based on the traditional French cartomancy. It is good for people who would like to get a quick, but serious reading of the day.

Be careful though, because the unstable arcana cards might be nasty and sometimes gang up on you. They are like human beings – some are nice and friendly, some are jealous and mean. Some are outright evil. That’s how those cards are, because that’s how life is.
