~Keys / Locks~
Historically, Keys have been used for everything from winding pocket watches to switching on the first two-way radios! The most common symbolic meaning used for the key is its power to unlock the door to the heart, opportunity or adventure. Companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, remind us that the key to life is making sure you have the right tools before approaching opportunity.
A symbol of giving or taking control, or exercising restraint in one's self. Commonly associated with trouble, wearing them, like a bullet, puts the ability to control your actions back into your control.
~Ace of Spades~
It's been said that those who identify with this card are able to detect truth & dishonesty better than most. A handy trick if you happen to be a gambler. Those who associate with this symbol are also known to have a stronger drive succeed than normal, in both matters of the heart & the wallet.
