My thought– I see a castle in the background. When I see the wands suit, I think of walking sticks, which people in the middle class in middle ages. The wand is red, making me think of Fire, passion, drive. I like how the hand that is giving the world the wand is also giving us a thumbs up too. It makes me think that we should go for it, and I don’t know what to go for.
The book – LIke all of the aces, the Ace of Wands is a gift or unexpected opportunity. The aces indicate a moment in time filled with fortuitous possibility. The power of the aces shows up in our lives when circumstances are just right for action. Acting quickly is the best way to take advantage of the aces, as these moments do not last long. Aces are also seeds of great promise. Because this is a wands card, it contains the fiery energy of all the wands. This energy is manifested in several ways: passion, inspiration, courage, will, action, optimism. It is particularly suited for career-related activities and projects or plans of any sort. The Ace of Wands is the universe giving us a “Thumb’s up” sign. It tells us to “just do it” – act on that idea or accept that challenge.
The Universal Waite Card- The image of the hand emerging from the cloud highlights the idea of a gift being given. The wand is alive, showing the potential for growth, the possibilities inherent in the gift. The cloud underlines the idea of a temporary moment: wait too long, and the circumstances will change
Core Meaning- An opportunity to take action.
