The Ace of Wands

Ace Of Wands Tarot Card

The Ace is the core or primal representation of that energy.

If you are seeing the Ace of Wands in your reading then there is a good chance that you are experiencing a lot of momentum, passion, and power around one or all aspects of your life at this time. The Ace card brings positive energies with it including exuberance, energy, and motivation to get started on a project.

The Wand is full of power and directs the energy where to go. Being that you are likely dealing with fiery energy in your life right now, it is a good time to start making plans for the future that require action or motivation on your part. With the surge of fire behind you take action and charge forth, completing aspects of your life that you have left unattended until now. Focus your energies on growth and renewal or being influential. Do not waste this energy as it does not come around all that often. It’s like a surge of energy being blasted into your life and can leave you feeling glorious or almost as if you can take on the world.

The Ace of Wands can also represent renewed creativity or innovation. Think outside the box for solutions or ideas that are not the norm. This is a great time to push yourself forward or challenge physical limits. Mentally speaking, your psyche is overcharged with optimism and eagerness. Think about ways in which you are stunted by routine and switch them up. Create opportunities for renewal and success by exercising your mind and body.

If you are finding that right now you are lacking motivation, you need to activate this power. Sometimes the Ace cards will show up to remind you what is needed in your life right now. With the wands card, it can indicate a need for passion, rejuvenation, motivation, and confidence. Consider areas of your life that you have felt that there is a lack and spend more time cultivating change.

The Ace of Wands in Love

The Ace of Wands in a love reading gives a sexy or sensual feel to your love life. It can represent a focus on primal urges, sexuality, and dominance. Even though all of these aspects can have negative sides to them, usually the ace represents that you have the energy to burn right now. It shows a true spark either in your current relationship or one that is going to be coming to you soon.

When asking the cards about someone specific in love the wands card will often represent a person with auburn, red, or medium colored hair. This person will be dynamic, active, and radiate confidence. The card also represents the beginnings of a romance that is very physical but sometimes lacking on more substantial levels. It is likely that the attraction in a new relationship will be based on appearances rather than things in common. When you find a relationship while the Ace of Wands is favoring you, be prepared that this may not be your true love but still a fun relationship while it lasts.

It can indicate a whirlwind relationship or one that is sexually charged. Try not to get too caught up in the details but rather allow yourself to be swept away with passion and abandon. This is a time to be experimental and try new things. Consider taking charge in a relationship right now or letting that special someone know that you are interested in them. Expect fireworks.

Reversed ace of wands

The Ace Of Wands Reversed

Because the Ace of Wands is a card about excess power, indulgence, and has a sexual tone, when it is in the reversed position it can often indicate these aspects in your life are present but out of balance. Whereas when the Ace of Wands is upright the power is directed and has focus, in the reversed position the power pours out and can affect multiple areas of your life. Often it will indicate being out of control or a lack of balance in a relationship. You may feel that you are caught in a power struggle and feel a lot of resistance around you. Creativity is present but again, not focused. In times where the Ace of Wands reversed it is time to reign yourself in and center yourself. Allow your focus in work or finances to settle and avoid stretching yourself too thin.

The Ace of Wands Reversed - Love and Romance

The Ace of Wands reversed for questions on love and romance can indicate that you are having too much of a good thing. For feelings, the Ace of Wands reversed can mean that an opportunity is fizzling out.  Generally, it means that someone (in the relationship) has already decided on the course of action they wish to follow. As the upright signifies love, romance, and happiness in the reversed position the ace of wands can suggest something is being blocked, such as impotence or flat libido. It can simply mean that the “passion” in a relationship has diminished in time.

This can also signify that you need to turn your sexual energy inside yourself and work on yourself and internal constraints. If you have drawn this card based on somebody’s feelings for you, it can indicate that they are losing interest or perhaps suffering from some type of acute depression. The most important element of this card is if we reverse the Ace of Wands, we can still see the roots of the tree so there is still hope that in love someone may not let you down. At times I’ve drawn this card when self-growth is needed in a relationship. Very occasionally the ace of wands reversed can represent starting something new. And in this case a new relationship,  but there are going to be struggles , and the opportunity may not manifest itself. Alternatively, this card can appear when you are frustrated about a love affair. Perhaps you simply lack the energy to get the love that you need or feel deflation.

The Ace of Wands Reversed - Family and Home

In the family and home spread the Ace of Wands reversed can indicate feeling powerless. It can mean someone has let you down and is best to review and consider your plans or goals for the future. The good news is that in the reverse position the route appears in the sky, therefore there may be some new expectations. In the reverse position, it can also represent an unproductive relationship or trouble with somebody who is rather cruel.

The Ace of Wands Reversed - Work and Finances

In terms of career, the Ace of Wands reversed emphasizes the need for inner strength and power. This is to overcome rejection or mixed up goals. If you’ve applied for a new position at work it can mean that you are going to be “turned down” this may be for a reason. It can also mean that if you achieve success in gaining a new position (either through work or finances) then it is not the right time. In regards to money, the ace of wands reversed shows that you need to “plant your ideas” in the spiritual world. How can you ever achieve something if you don’t know where you’re going in terms of yes or no this is a “no” card. But it emphasizes the need for strength and power to turn it into a positive result.

The Ace of Wands Reversed - Personal Spirituality

You might resist change and be reluctant to take on certain elements of life when the Ace of Wands reversed appears. It can indicate that your creative energies are blocked. Alternatively, somebody may be letting you down.  I do feel this is a time for “setting goals” but on an energetic field - you are feeling weary of reluctant to take on spiritual self-growth. The placement of any Ace reversed in your spread points to emphasize like a command you need to look at your spiritual goals.
