Aces can be read as chances that lie in our environment or in ourselves. The Ace of Swords means that we have the chance now to clear things which had been unclear or incomprehensible. We have the chance to dissolve entanglements, to resolve conflicts. Basically the Ace of Swords means that now is the time to put some distance between us and our problems and look at them with a cool head and a clear mind. Out of this perspective we will be able to understand them better.
