The ace is the introduction to the suit of wands – and what an introduction it is! This contains the core essence of wands energy: fire, growth, and enthusiasm. It piques our curiosity and sets us on a course to explore the rest of the Wands cards – but first, let’s take a closer look at this ace.

Patches of fresh blossoms and leaves are sprouting from the wand in the card’s center. This sprouting foliage gives the effect of bursting life and untapped potential. The imagery throws back to that of the Fool, where we saw a chick perched on a branch. Perhaps this is the same branch?

Around the wand is a field of white-hot energy, which merges into orange and yellow rays. This is a reminder of the suit’s association with fire. It’s an exciting, radiating energy. Fire is an active, outward moving element. The Ace of Wands is ripe with an exciting, dynamic, adventurous energy!

The image evokes the zestful spark we’ve come to associate with the Ace of Wands, that first brilliant flash of inspiration that might lead us anywhere. Onward!
