How to Read the Ace of Hearts:

The Ace of Hearts specifically symbolizes the home and domestic affairs.

My grandmother called the A♥ “La Casa” which means “the house” or “home” in Italian. For her this card would denote wherever a person held residence. It could be a house, an
apartment, a hotel, or even a car if that was where the individual called “home.” The surrounding card would reveal the current situation in the home, and any problems or changes affecting the querent's home life.
The A♥ is also a card of protection. I can remember my grandmother sliding an Ace
of Hearts inside the picture frame behind a photo before she hung it on the wall. She believed the Ace would protect the home and bring good luck.
