Some readers will speak of the Ace of Spades as “the death card” but what they are referring to, in a kind of psychic’s shorthand, is an ending or conclusion in a person’s life. It may be as benign as the satisfactory completion of a project. On the other hand, it may be a great upheaval such as a physical move, the loss of a job or a change in personal status. Often the card portends a marriage or the birth of a child. Just as often, though, it signals the end of a relationship or a diagnosis of infertility.
The important issue with the Ace of Spades is not the card itself but where it sits in the spread. The cards around it are the determining factors. If the Ace of Spades is surrounded by Hearts, for instance, a new and life changing relationship may be coming the querent’s way. Or perhaps they are heading toward reconciliation with a close family member. Or, as noted, a child is on the way. These are just a few examples but you get the picture.
The thing to remember is that the Ace of Spades signifies not just a little blip on a querent’s daily radar, but a life changing event. And many times embracing versus resisting such change is the driving factor that brought that person to ask the cards for insight in the first place. Bon Vendredi ~
