The number 1 in Tarot is represented by the Ace cards. They speak of changes, new potential and the beginnings of cycles. In numerology, the one symbolizes individualism, strength of will, and drive and determination.
The Ace’s in Tarot also represent the seasons and natural cycles of things. One is the start of a cycle so many ones in a Tarot spread often mean the beginning of a change or shift, things taking form, or starting to move in a new direction. They also represent potential, possibilities and serve as a reminder not to get “stuck” in certain mindsets, but to be open to change and to go with the natural cycles of life.
The number one also focuses on the individual: leadership, taking accountability and relying on oneself.
