Tarot Talk: The Suit of Wands


When a card in the suit of Wands turns up for the Daily Card or in a personal reading, we’re dealing with a strong urge to perform an action and get things moving. We could call that urge “passion” or the need to express how you feel through your deeds. You can be passionate about many things, but the most common areas with the Wands are work/career and sexual feelings.

Many times, the energy of the Wands has to do with ambition, wanting to achieve success, and taking the necessary steps to get what you want. You may have to take a leadership role to get what you want and thus organize people to help you reach a goal. The Wands also indicates having good ideas and coming up with ways to bring these ideas to light. They symbolize the creative spark.

When it comes to sex, the Wands represent desire, attraction, and the ability to express these feelings. The Wands can also be a symbol of fertility, which ties into the idea of creativity.

The King and Queen of Wands represent examples of how the masculine and feminine energy can each use leadership, charisma, and sexuality in the most balanced way possible. (In fact, the King and Queen of each suit represent mastery of their particular element.)

The Wands represent fiery energy, which means being passionate, taking action, and taking charge. When related to astrology, the Wands are associated with the fire signs — namely Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

In a personal reading, the position of the card in the spread, the question, and intuition, among other things, help determine what each card means specifically. For the daily card, I clear my head and ask the Universe to show me what message the group as a collective needs to hear. I allow the card to pop out of of the deck as I shuffle. Then I interpret the card based on intuition and channeling.

As a result, any card can have an infinite number of interpretations, depending on the circumstance. But when I see a Wand, I have my first clue as to which general direction I’m going in.
