Ace of Wands, Thoth Tarot

The Aces in Love

The Aces are new beginnings, seeds, gifts, opportunities for abundance and an influx of powerful energy. Often they enter our lives out of the blue and sometimes nothing becomes of them. Other times they are the beginning of a wonderful new connection or a fresh new start in an existing situation.

So what do they mean specifically in a reading about matters of the heart?

Ace of Wands, Thoth Tarot The Ace of Wands is a spark of passionate energy. This is the ultimate mojo card. If you get this card in a love reading, you can count on at least one person being powerfully attracted to the other. Charisma abounds.

However, a spark is a thing of the moment. This is something that could fizzle and die if not acted on.

Depending on surrounding cards or if it comes out reversed, it could be a superficial attraction, lacking in-depth and intimacy.

The Ace of Wands is the root of our very life force energy. Therefore it relates to sexual energy in both males and females but for obvious reasons it relates more to male virility and sexual health. A reversal could indicate impotence.

Intimate moments signified by the Ace of Wands will be passionate and physically vigorous but may not always lead to a deepening of emotional bonds. They are about being in the moment.


Ace of Cups, Thoth TarotThe Ace of Cups is often found in a reading at the start of a great new love relationship but it could simply meaning falling in love. For reciprocal love we want the 2 of Cups.

The highest aspect of this card is the gift of unconditional love, which is a chance for the divine to shine through us.

This is the most emotionally intimate of all the Aces, relating directly to an outpouring of love. If you find this card in a reading and know that it relates to how you feel about someone, you may want to make sure they feel the same as you are likely to get powerfully hooked on them if you ‘go there.’

Reversed or ill dignified, it can indicate withholding affection or devotion.

This is also a symbol of conception, heralding a pregnancy, especially together with The Empress or The Sun.


Ace of Swords, Thoth TarotWhen the Ace of Swords shows up in a relationship reading for a potential date, you can expect stimulating conversation and being introduced to new concepts and ideas.

If it shows up in a reading for an existing relationship, there is a chance to change the way you communicate for the better. It could also mean that someone is thinking about the relationship in a new and different way.

Reversed or ill dignified it signifies break-downs in communication or withholding of affection the form of words. It can even mean that someone is mean and sharp-tongued.

In intimate situations, the Ace of Swords could mean using language to arouse each other or deciding to try something new and experimental.



Ace of Pentacles, Thoth Tarot The Ace of Pentacles could signify a posh date with luxurious surroundings. You could be drawn to someone because of their status in society, their power or their money.

In a reading for an existing relationship, it could mean a new focus where you decide to work toward financial success or to start a fitness regime.

Reversed or ill dignified, this Ace can symbolise an obsession with the physical and material side of the relationship. One or both of you could be more concerned with appearances than with depth of emotion.

In an intimate setting, the Ace of Pentacle signifies a focus on achieving climax or surrendering to animal instincts.

  1. Hi. I just pulled the ace of wands one card. Asking will they contact me. What type of communication do you feel the ace of wands brings ?

    1. Post

      It’s important to be very clear about your intent when pulling just one cards for a yes/no answer. Aces are a strong yes but very little else as they signify potential. Why not read separately on what to expect in terms of communication?

      1. Okay what spread would you suggest. I tried it with a past present future.. i got knight of swords high priestess and 6 of cups but i don’t really know how to interpret it tbh. I used the question you suggested . Also what type of communication do feel the ace of wands brings

  2. I have just started “seeing” a new man and when I did a reading on what was to come with our relationship I pulled the chariot with the ace of cups… I am not sure if the outcome is still a good one being with the chariot??
    any help??

    Thanks! 🙂

  3. Sorry Lisa, I should have clarified I just noticed that cards that indicate soulmate (Six of Water) and falling in love (Ace of Water) and mutual love (Two of Water) they all showed up in the reading and I always look at the overall presentation of the reading. I am a girl just learning to accept that she is a medium too so I go by the feelings and perceptions etc. I feel like the cards that are present show a significant soul mate connection. The ending of problems and that with the Eight of Air present there is a feeling of no matter how difficult it has been to have this connection there is feeling you are not able to escape the bond. Two of Water in the outcome it’s a positive outcome. I don’t read reversed because I am able to pick up reversed energetically and through vision. Just was wondering if you had anything on the combination of those three cards showing up in a reading together cause I also read from the overall energetic perception of what cards are present not just the position they are in. Thanks so much Lisa! <3

  4. Lisa, I did a six card mini celtic cross and I got Ace Water at position 1, Awakening(Temperance) at 2, 6 of Water at 3, 10 of Air at 4, 8 of Air 5, 2 of Water at 6. I have the Ace of Water, 6 of Water, and the Two of Water in the outcome is there something you have written about all of those cards showing up together in your web literature. It was a mini Celtic Cross Love reading. I’ve looked at them all individually. Thanks Lisa!

  5. Great Point about pulling cards over and over. What’s the best way to “detox?”
    Is there a number of days to rest from the cards?

  6. I did a reading regarding the rekindling of the relationship and this is what I got:

    How he sees me: Ace of Wands
    How he feels about me: Two of cups

    I’m thinking I’m in good shape – what do you think?

  7. God but the Thoth is beautiful, is it not?! Yes, for me too the Aces signify opportunities that come to fruition a little further down the line – like a seed that needs time to grow before it blossoms.
