The Aces

The Aces represent the foundational energy of each suit. Since they are the first number in each suit, they represent new and fresh beginnings. The Aces begin our path of development through the particular aspects represented by each of the four suits. They contain the seeds of our potential, which will unfold into realization as we progress through the Cups, Wands, Swords, and Pentacles.

Ace of Cups

The Ace of Cups is the receptacle for our emotional aspect. It is a card of the heart, and speaks of peace, harmony, and most importantly, Universal Love.

The Ace of Wands is the card of inspiration. It represents the moment when we open the door to spiritual development through conscious thought, and by tapping into our inner spark of knowing. Creativity emerges throughout the Wands.

The Ace of Swords invites us to step out of life’s illusions, and heralds in experiences which are penetrating and direct. Here we are plunged into deeper concentration and focus, and confronted with the awakening of our individuality.

Ace of Wands

The Ace of Pentacles represents a new opportunity in our physical, earthly experience. Positive and exciting developments are now possible. Here we begin the lessons that teach us a great deal about manifesting higher goals in all of our worldly endeavors.

The Aces are our first glimpse into the deeper meanings represented by the four suits. These seeds of potential are the building blocks upon which all future experience will unfold. So, when we encounter one of the four Aces, remember, we are coming face to face with an invitation to develop emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual maturity. What a lovely opportunity!

After a long career of painting and sharing the nature spirits through my art, I decided to create a tarot deck. This project has been an eight year personal journey. As I worked to capture just the right imagery for the message of this timeless tradition, I learned much about the psyche, and I deepened my connection with nature. I hope these interpretations will bring you new insights, quiet moments with nature, and great pleasure.
