Aces are the root force, the spark or seed of the suit. Relate them to the Magician, who presents the tools to the Fool. 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, but which is which is often debated. Here are the most typical directions and seasons. If, however, they don't feel right to you, the reader, change them to what works.
These are the Aces, the raw or initial passion, feelings, thoughts and needs that can be directed into something more. They represent hope, a possibility, an action to take, a future that you can create.
Choose wisely what you take up from the Magician's table for each has its pitfalls as well as pinnacles.
