Steele Wizard Tarot by Pamela Steele (self-published). This is a RWS-based deck, with a number of extra cards. Each suit has an extra Court Card - the Maiden - so the Courts comprise the Page, Maiden, Knight, Queen and King. The deck also has six extra Majors, more about those later in the week :)
For this first draw I pulled the Ace of Wands. All the wands in this suit are topped by a crystal, an idea I like pointing towards a focusing of the mind and directing of our personal energy towards whatever project we choose. Here, too, there are runes carved into the wand - Sowilo, Berkano and Tiwaz. Sowilo represents the Sun - success and energy. Berkano, a rune of fertility and growth, though somewhat feminine for the wand, is perhaps indicative of the feminine within the masculine, and its regenerative power is certainly a powerful and positive one. Tiwaz is the rune of the sky god Tyr, representative of honour and leadership. These both feel like good runes for this card. I also like the leaves twining around the wand, suggestive of growth and potential, and the feather ornament, which seems like a shaman's talisman, another way of drawing energy into this wand.
I'm certainly going to need this fertile wands energy today: I have an essay to write!
I am grateful for all the help I can get in focusing my intent.
