The four ACES are the Season Cards:
ACE OF CUPS = SPRING = March/April/May
ACE OF WANDS = SUMMER = June/July/August
ACE OF SWORDS = AUTUMN = September/October/November
ACE OF PENTACLES = WINTER = December/January/February
Although the Aces are Season Cards when they appear in certain positions in a spread, they also retain their individual interpretations as well. Don't become so involved in trying to determine a date that you lose the essence of divination contained in each card in the spread!
Aces play an important part in the Tarot drama. When an Ace appears in a spread it opens up many possibilities in terms of interpretation. EXERCISE 3 in Chapter 2 provides a good deal of important information about the Aces, and if necessary, it might be a good idea at this point to go back and review this material before going ahead.

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
