Tarot Tuesday

The Wands are a fiery, passionate and creative suit. In the past this suit was associated with peasants and today it is still used to predict changes in work and creativity. Their direction is south; its element fire, its season summer and the
astrological corresponding signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
The Ace of Wands indicates the birth of an idea, a promotion or new job or business. It can also show any new venture or challenge including a marriage, pregnancy, the birth of a child or start of a passionate relationship.

The Ace of Wands, in questions about love relationships, can show a fiery, passionate and hot blooded affair. This affair, although exciting and thrilling is very likely to be short lived and will burn out rather than smolder gently.

The Ace of Wands can also show the potential of healing. If you have been feeling low lately, its warming healing energy can offer a renewed sense of vitality and improved strength. The positive energy and the promise of success contained within the Ace of Wands assure major breakthroughs and real progress. This progress forward to achieve your dreams and goals may come about through unexpected sources, events or people. An element of surprise, exciting twists of fate, and being exactly in the right place at the right time are strongly indicated when this card shows up in a Tarot Reading.

In financial readings, the appearance of this card is usually the sign of a turn for the better in terms of fortune and wealth, and sometimes it can even indicate gifts of money, or inheritance from unexpected sources (but it certainly doesn't mean that someone has to pass over for you to receive this inheritance.) This gift does not have to be money of course; any kind of gift that has value to both the giver and the receiver can be indicated by the Ace.

Three cards from the Major Arcana go well with the Ace of Wands: The Magician, Justice and The World. When any of these appear, things will be going your way on projects or plans you have. The Magician indicates that you will be the master of your own destiny. Justice reveals that the social structure is working in your favor. The World indicates that your creative plans are in synch with the natural order of things and should find their own high-water mark of success.
