I always love to see the Ace of Wands, sign of new inspiration, creativity and passion. However, I'll admit I barely recognised this card at first glance. From the colouring, I would have guessed the Ace of Swords! Still, I do like the stag at the top of this wand, reminiscent of the Ace of Wands in the DruidCraft Tarot :)
Perhaps what the colouring shows us is that, even when sparked into enthusiasm, we can keep our cool and put our energy to work with clear focus. Or maybe that blue is a reminder that Wands energy is like the sun on a clear, blue summer's day: it can warm us through, but it can also burn us if we don't take care.
I'm not all too surprised to see this card today. I had an idea on Monday, and today I should finally get the last tool I need to actually make a start on this new creative project. While you could say the Ace of Wands would have better represented Monday, I'd say that was more an Ace of Swords moment: the idea, but without yet any basis to start getting creative with it.
Sometimes it seems like, until I make an actual start, my enthusiasm and inspiration can't really kick in. It's an idea, floating around, but with nothing to fuel the fire of creativity. Certainly, that honours the pagan idea of starting in the East with Air, and then moving to the fiery South :)
I am grateful for the ability to set my creativity free.
