Tarot Cards – The Minor Arcana Ace Cards
The aces of the Minor Arcana carry meanings of great significance and power, often more associated with the cards of the Major Arcana. However, given their sub-group, these aces must be applied to our individual identities as seekers.
The aces of the Minor Arcana are often said to represent the beginning of a new cycle in the seeker’s life. Typically, they represent a psychic force that is propelling the seekers into a new area of development and growth. However, for the seeker, this might feel as though they are at a crossroads in their life; that they have an important decision to make. When an ace is drawn in a reading, it represents the arrival of new opportunities.
Each suit has its own ace and they are the foundation cards for the rest of the cards in each suit. The ace represents the root of that suit, encompassing everything it stands for. It can symbolize forward-thinking, new opportunities and individuality. When there are a number of aces in a Tarot spread, it means that every aspect of your psyche is fired-up and ready to embrace new things. It may be an opportunity at work, in love or that you are about to begin a cycle of understanding about yourself that will result in further opportunities. Each ace has its own particular significance:
Ace of Wands

Ace of Swords
This ace suggests that you are about to rediscover your self-confidence, giving you the boost you need to chase ideas that you might have let go in the past.
Ace of Cups

Ace of Pentacles
