The Suit of Spades is associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence. This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. The Suit of Spades deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centered around the mind and the intellect. Spades mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Spades themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Spades symbolizes the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Spades must be balanced by spirit (Clubs) and feeling (Hearts). The negative aspects of the Suit of Spades (i.e. when the Spades cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.
Timing: When looking for time sensitive answers, Spades generally means moderately fast, often a matter of days to weeks.
The Cartomancy Aces are most often welcomed in a draw, as they inspire newness in many aspects: growth, challenges, ideas, love, opportunities, perspectives New everything! They are usually seen as positive, if you are ready for change or to see things with a new vision. Aces are the root force, the spark or seed of the suit. They have no purpose yet, but are filled with raw potential. They are the active energy of the suit ready to be used. They can also indicate compass direction or season. They represent the seed of potential, the potential of what could happen next, because it hasn’t yet fully manifested. And within any Cartomancy reading, the Aces show us that possibility. It’s up to us to turn it into something further.

Getting The Reversed Ace of Spades might mean that one’s thoughts are confused, unsure and very chaotic. This isnt a good time for one to make any decisions since they dont have any clarity on what you should be doing, meaning that the chances of failure can be pretty high. At this time, it would be better to prepare yourself and take baby steps – work methodically as you slowly move towards achieving your goals. This would be a good time to lay back and rationally think your way through each stage rather than acting on impulse, since everything appears in a blur and is not very clear at that moment. It might also be a good time to seek advice since things may not be as they seem.
