In this image, we can see symbolism already explored within Tarot of a Moon Garden. In a previous draw, Chloe commented on how the castle could represent fantasies. Here, it mimics the same idea but stands far in the distance, slightly obscured by clouds. In this illustration, it represents a goal.
A unicorn delicately wraps itself around the tree in the foreground. You could look at this as a starting point. The castle is where we want to be and the tree is where we are right now. Therefore, the space represents the journey between a rush of excitement and fulfilment.
For today, this card suggests a new spark of interest or enthusiasm. Have you had an idea or do you feel inspired? This is the energy of the Ace of Wands. However, having an idea is not enough. Wands represent action, so when combined with an ace, this new surge of interest needs to be nurtured. It must be connected to the castle in some way.
The Ace of Wands is a wonderful card to behold. It marks new beginnings, which arrive through a rush of excitement. It is this rush from the Ace which makes us get out of bed each day, start a project or enjoy what the world has to offer.
Where will the Ace of Wands take you today?
