The aces represent the distilled energy—the seed energy or essence of each suit. As such, they could be said to be both higher and lower than the court cards, just as in a regular playing deck.
Aces are related to their numerical equivalent in the Major Arcana: Key #1, The Magician/ATTENTION, who presents the tools of earthly existence to the newly incarnated Fool. The Ace has no direction of its own; they are filled with raw potential. They are the energy of the suit, ready to be directed by consciousness.
The Aces represent 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. The aces demonstrate the promise of the power represented by their respective suit: each suit opens up a path that when used together allow us to create on the material plane.
