Its primary signification, when the card is reversed, is that of a Paul Pry, or spy, whence we have the secondary ones of inquirer, spectator, watcher, overseer, as well as the result of such a man’s investigations.

For the ones with the Jack of Spades birth card, life is full of lucky turns and unexpected gifts. This person is very prone to inherit money. Yet, they are more than capable of building a successful life for themselves.
Despite the lucky charm that comes with their life. People with the Jack of Aces usually choose to make between two paths. They are capable of great things and can achieve greatness as well as a life full of happiness. Yet their destiny is separate with two different sides of a coin. And it’s up to them to pick which kind of life they want to live.
Two paths, two different outcomes yet the same great potential. For some, the choice is easy, and they become successful in their career life and romance. Those tend to pick careers that enable them to practice their comprehensive knowledge and help others. They tend to choose jobs as a doctor or around the field of assisting others in hardships situations.
For those who pick a different path. They can become empty due to the lack of accomplishments, sadness, and unhappiness. Friends leave, and their life can feel like a complete disgrace. They can even drift for a life of crime. Thye becomes selfish and unable to open their mind to life with different outcomes.
Personal message: With immense power comes big responsibilities. And you have known this from an early age. Even though luck comes to you easily. This doesnt mean that your life has always been that way. The path you took definitely took a toll on how your life is now developing. Yet you have everything that you need to achieve success already in you. So it’s also up to you to decide which life you want to have.
What you have been through doesn’t define where you will be tomorrow. It only makes you stronger. You are capable of tremendous spiritual power. You just need to accept your worth and your ability to thrive in life. Believe that you can achieve it, and you will.
