Ace of Wands

The Wands are associated with fire, which means they stand for creative energy. They mainly symbolize professional life (as this is the field in which we usually express our creativity and ambition) and generally everything that has to do with expansion and action.

Moreover, since the Aces stand for new beginnings, we can easily remember that the Ace of Wands symbolizes every new venture we start with enthusiasm, passion and ambition. On this card a hand appears through the clouds holding a flowering branch. This symbolizes the new beginnings that can flourish and bear fruit if we put all our energy and crativity in the effort. 


General Meaning

In matters relating to personal relationships the Ace of Wands is an indicator of male sexual energy (active and satisfying sex life for a man, a dynamic new lover for a woman). It can also indicate the the birth of a child. It generally symbolizes the beginning of an important relationship full of passion and excitement.

The Ace of Wands is a highly creative card when it comes to professional matters. It stands for new dynamic projects and ventures which are bound to be successful if served with vigor, dedication and passion. 

In a negative position
When the Ace of Wands appears upright in a negative position, it may indicate that what you mostly lack and need is focus and enthusiasm. Don't allow yourself to stagnate! The Ace of Wands urges you to take initiative in order to see your life change.



When the Ace of Wands appears reversed, it often suggests that new projects are postponed or cancelled. This may be because you are acting solely on your impulses without planning ahead. It seems you still haven't realized what it takes to fulfill a dream. If delays and cancellations are due to external factors, this card may be an indication of bad timing. Don't try to force your will on things. Protect yourself from the decline and fall instead.

Another interpretation of the Ace of Wands reversed suggests sexual problems in men and violence or sexual oppression and exploitation for both men and women.
