The Ace of Wands ~ Pure, Primal Fire!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Ace of Wands, representing: Birth, creativity and individual will. The Ace of Wands is one of the most dynamic cards in the deck (second only the Major Arcana’s Sun), for it represents the unleashing of pure, primal fire. Like a volcanic eruption, the seeds of self, buried deep within, breakthrough past restrictions into the light of day. In alchemy this called “the second birth”, an energetic rebirth, where we awaken newly to our self-potential, separate from the dictates of the past.
The Ace of Wands is a selfish card, in the highest sense, just as birth and the desire to create something special and unique for oneself is a selfish process. Here, we claim the right to be and the freedom to express oneself, unencumbered.
The Tree of Life, here depicted as a wise old oak, is my Ace of Wands. Notice that, although the tree appears dormant, there are buds beginning to spring from its limbs. They represent the first sparks of creation, the tiny flames of new possibilities.
The Ace of Wands indicates a highly creative time, where you find yourself newly inspired to express your gifts to the world. Spirit is actively moving through you. Your enthusiasm is an indication of this. Exert your individual will and begin to create a more authentic life.
Wishing you a very creative week!
