Daily: Ace of Wands

Ace of Wands (2)
Efflorescent Tarot

Today’s card is the Ace of Wands.

The Ace of Wands can represent a new project or a desire to create. It could be a flash of inspiration that sparks creative confidence and enthusiasm. An eagerness to rise to a challenge. Be bold and trust your inner light. It can also symbolize spiritual awakening and sexuality. Fire energy may not last for long lengths of time, so we must take advantage when inspiration strikes and trust our instincts. The eight leaves flying off of the wand in the Efflorescent Tarot card, which is similar to the traditional RWS card, symbolizes the number eight card of the Major Arcana: Strength.

A shadow could be a lack of passion for a project, a premature start on a project, or a missing opportunity. As an element, the work of fire is irreversible, so it could be a reminder to not let our passionate enthusiasm run so wild that we damage others (or even ourselves) in the process of pursuing our creative endeavor. Perhaps if we are lacking passion we need to seek out that which will inspire us and light our inner fire.

If the Ace of Wands could say something to me today, it might say, “Pay attention to what inspires you and follow your passion.”
