When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawings, the Ace of Swords may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers do like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic readers conduct their readings because a Tarot Card deck connects to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
Merging the qualities of number one, “Ace” and the qualities of the “Swords Suit,” the Ace of Swords card would represent:
|Having mental force||Looking at things in an objective way|
|Finding facts||Thinking your way through|
|Good at analyzing situations||Applying logic and intellect|
|Overcoming adversaries||Facing problems, no fear|
|Strength to overcome||Setbacks don’t shuttle you|
|Bringing injustice||Making a wrong right|
|Truthful, responsible||Dispelling confusion or doubts|
In a reverse position, the Ace of Swords would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Intellectual confusion||Lack of concentration|
|Creative blocks||Making the wrong decision in an impulse|
|Lack of communication||Arguments and misinformation|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If the Ace of Swords would sit in a horizontal position, it advises you to be careful of the opposition you have.
It could indicate that there is a specific person. Still, it usually shows that you are lacking mental strength, are confused or not thinking clearly, which creates blockages when dealing with anything. The strongest opposition anyone faces is themselves. Before making final decisions take your time to analyze everything thoroughly. Also, don’t jump at the first thing you feel is best; it may not be the right time yet.

How someone sees you or feels about you?
The answer would be they see you as someone logical, intellectual, good at analyzing the problem from many sides, and taking well-thought decisions. It proves to be a good trait in a relationship because they love how you solve things out, you don’t allow your emotions to run you and make a mess.
You are collected and put together, and you prefer to communicate in any case. Sometimes what you say may come out as harsh and cold-hearted to them, but if they do appreciate an honest opinion, that’s nothing to worry about. If they don’t, you may need to adjust the way you say things.
Just starting dating?
If you have started dating this new person, the Ace of Swords indicates that your person sees you as someone who may be cold-hearted, because you put out such a strong face, and give a strong impression. Though, when they get to know you, they will see that you are prone to intellectual discussions, and you don’t like to joke just for the sake of it.
You value a quality conversation, and you manage to educate yourself on everything you can. They also see you as someone who would cut them out in a blink of an eye if they don’t step up to your standards.
What not to do?
In terms of what not to do, it would advise you to watch your words and also watch your thoughts. Sometimes you may get so lost in your heard and over-analyze anything to the point that you make a whole mess out of nothing, or you create trouble and issues where in reality, there is not one. Also, because you tend to act on intellect and argue with logic, what you say may come out as harsh or even insulting to your partner, which in turn will only deepen the issues and add more problems. If you need a time out, say so, and give some space to each other.
Reverse Position (Love and Relationships)
If you pull the Ace of Swords, reversed indicates a lack of communication. One or both of you may not be used to talking things out. It may also be the case of deep-seated resentment, anger, doubt, and hostility. Unless you turn the Ace of Swords upright, there’s not much room to solve anything. You need to work with yourself if you recognize these emotions in you.

It could also mean that you will meet up with colleagues or business partners to brainstorm ideas for a new project and strategize the plan to get it going. You have bright ideas of what you want to achieve and the final results.
What not to do?
The Ace of Swords would advise you to always put logic, especially in money and business problems. You are prone to making wrong rights, therefore you may consider jumping in a venture just because you can help someone else, but this may not be the wisest investment.

You should double-check your investments and make sure you understand what you are diving into.
Ace of Swords – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull the Ace of Swords, this would mean that whatever you desire or wonder about will manifest, but it will take time, as an Air element indicates movement, and a swift one.
How soon is that, it would be kind of complicated because it could mean Wintertime, or that of a Zodiac Sign season Gemini, Libra or Aquarius.
It would also be counted in months, or around the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th of a month.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming, though it could come in a breeze or not stand for long.
With the Swords Suit, the best way to go around figuring out the time would always be to think at least one later, and it would go something like this: If it is already Winter, your best bet would be next month or around Aquarius season.
