Thoth Cards Meaning Ace of Swords
Thoth Cards Meanings Ace of Swords is a very powerful Tarot Card. Many Readers do not fully understand its full interpretation. However, most do get it right.
They are right to say that the Ace of Swords is “the seed” of our “expectations”. However, to understand the Ace of Sword more fully, one may want to say instead, that – “the Ace of Swords is the ‘Primordial Energy of Air’. It is not the Element of Air per say, but rather the “Root” of the Power of Air”, The Book of Thoth by the Master Therion (Aleister Crowley). The Root of the Power of Air, is another way of saying the ‘Seed of the Element of Air; not the real manifestation of the Element in its material form. In other words, it is ‘the energy’.
In Tarot Magick, the Ace of Swords – is a double-edged sword. Occultists, Magi, and Witches use its energy to invoke either good or evil. No matter how you may want to use it, you can get a sense of justice by merely looking at this Card. You can sense it can hang over one’s head like the Sword of Damocles; it splits hairs (so to speak). It cuts through the bullshit!
Tarot Magick is a powerful form of magick. It is dark, some may rightly refer to it as ‘Tarot Voodoo’ or occultist. One thing is for sure, it is esoteric.
In this type of magick, the Ace of Swords is not a wimp. In fact, the Ace of Swords is above, and quite distinct from the other Pip Cards. It is the Sword on the Magician’s table, in the Majors Card The Magician. To read further about the Magician’s Card, click Magus of Power Tarot Card.

Invoking the Sword
Invoking the Sword, is not Fluff Magick. It is a very powerful invocation. The godname for all Aces, is Eheieh. However, the very specific godname for the Ace of Swords itself, is Elohim. Its Archangel is Michael. And its angel is Ariel.
The Ace of Swords is an Invoked Force, The New Golden Dawn Ritual Tarot, Keys to the Rituals, Symbolism, Magic and Divination – by Chic Cicero and Tabatha Cicero. It can be invoked for good or for evil. Invoking the Ace of Sword’s energy, is not for the Fluffy Bunny who just can not get past defensive magick. Nor is it for those who enjoy flexing their muscles to them.
Thoth Cards Meanings Ace of Swords is seriously about the double-edged Sword of the Astral world of Yetzirah. It has two branches. The Olive Branch on the right, and the Branch of Peace – on the left. The Olive Branch is the branch of Mercy (Chesed). The Palm Branch is the branch of Peace; the branch of Severity; the branch of Suffering. The double edges are the two possible courses of action when seeking justice.
Making the difference
Making the difference between the Primordial Root of the Element of Air and the Element of Spirit is essential. After all, if you are going to invoke the Sword, you might as well do it with the right Element lol…
In the Thoth doctrine (Thelema), Spirit is represented by the Major Arcana Cards (see the above picture of the Pentagram). The Symbol of the Pentagram is the Shield of David. The Pentagram (the Shield of David), represents Spirit ruling the four Elements. It symbolizes the Triumph of Man. The Aces form a link between the Princesses and the small cards. There is no real manifestation of the Element in its material manifestation. The Ace of Swords, is brilliant will power.
Representing Justice, is the Ace of Swords with a double-edge. It is the type of force and strength likened to a Tornado spinning through the bullshit in a situation. When there are clouds of confusion lurking about, the Ace of Swords affirms Justice. It upholds Divine Authority. The Ace of Swords, also brings wrath to the wrong-doers. It changes their world into chaos.
If you must remember one thing about the Ace of Swords Tarot Card, remember this much. That the Ace of Swords has no real manifestation. You can not really see this “seed” in this physical world. It is an energy that is still in the Astral World… It is for good or for evil.
