A few words to describe the card:

High energy, new path, light bulb moment

Ace of Wands

The ace of wands tarot card is a powerful starting card. As with the other ace cards, this represents a new adventure or new beginning, and thoughts and ideas. Wands are a high energy and passion card, being connected to the element of fire.

This card is representing you taking a new idea and going with it. Something is there for you to latch on to. Now it’s up to you to get it. It may mean stepping away from what’s comfortable to you, but it’ll take you on a new adventure if you can go.

Because the element is fire, this journey may not be the easiest, and you may have some battles to fight on your way, but something great may be at the end of this. It’s just up to you to take hold of the wand and go. Seeing this card appear in a tarot spread symbolizes that now is the time to take the risk.

Card Imagery

Still Confused?

Still confused about the meanings of the cards? A few tools that have been really helpful for me have been: practice, taking the time to look at each card, read books like Tarot: Learn How to Read and Interpret the Cards by Kim Arnold. Or try out tarot spreads! Try doing a simple reading every day. The Labyrinthos app is really helpful too. Or try some that I’ve created by looking here: Tarot Spreads.
