Ace of Wands Description
Wands are associated with fire and passion. The Ace of Wands depicts a hand reaching out of a cloud in the sky and cradling a large wand. The image embodies the forward, enthusiastic energy of the tarot card. Looking at the wand more closely, you will see that small leaves are sprouting from it which symbolizes growth on both the spiritual and material planes. In the distance is a castle suggesting that the seeds that are sown with the Ace of Wands could prosper into great wealth in time.
Ace of Wands: Yes or No?
There is no doubt when you pull the Ace of Wands in a yes/no reading. Because of the forward momentum of the card, it can be interpreted as a green light for any questions regarding whether you should act on something or not.
If you are asking about a potential lover, the Ace of Wands is a very exciting card to pull. It can mean that you have sparked this person’s interest and they are very sexually attracted to you. They may want to do something fun with you such as go on a date, go hiking, or even travel somewhere together.
In an existing relationship, this tarot card can represent renewed passion. For those planning to take the next step with their loved one, they can rest assured that their partner feels the same way and it may be time for the couple to break from their routines.
For career-related questions, you should follow your eagerness and take opportunities from others who are equally as excited as you are to be working together. A new job or new business may materialize in the near future and you should accept the offer.
Where there may have been problems in the past, you are able to look at these issues with a fresh set of eyes and not repeat the mistakes of the past. A more optimistic approach will see you do well in all your endeavors.
You are heading in the right direction. Maybe you have found a new hobby or a new way of doing an existing job that has restored the spark. If you have been unsure about whether you should make a move or not, the Ace of Wands seems to say, “just go for it.”
Reversed Ace of Wands Meaning
It is likely that when you pull the Ace of Wands in the reversed position, the card is trying to explain how you may lack motivation and excitement in your life. You may feel completely lost as though you have no real purpose or direction. This could leave you feeling uninspired and paralyzed when it comes to making decisions about the future.
In circumstances where you do have a goal in mind, you may not be excited to achieve it. It is likely that what once motivated you is no longer enough. Taking some time off to recalibrate could be very beneficial to you.
The Ace of Wands can also indicate delays with a certain project. External circumstances could keep cropping up that prevent you from achieving your goal. These frustrations can cause you to feel defeated. Likely, you have a clear vision of what you want in life but you may not know how to bring that into reality. You would greatly benefit from creating a step-by-step plan to achieve your goal and rewarding yourself as you move further down the path.
When the reversed Ace of Wands pertains to love, you should exercise caution. Perhaps you have just met someone who is sweeping you off your feet. The Ace of Wands in reverse encourages you to remain level-headed because an intense flame can quickly burn out. Long-term romances are not favored by this reversal, so be sure to slow down the pace if you are looking for something more secure.
