World Spirit Tarot (Llewellyn, 2001) once again adds some interesting twists to tradition.
The Ace of Wands is located in a desert, with pyramids all about. Despite the hot environment, there are leaves growing on the wand. It emits rays of light, as well as burning brightly at its tip. It sits in a vesica piscis or mandorla, a geometric shape also found in many World cards, and which is considered part of sacred geometry. Outside this, a sun shines on the left, a moon on the right.
Plenty of symbolism here, which speaks of energy, drive, the ability to adapt to different situations, and a great sense of aliveness. When we feel this Ace's energy, we can shine brightly, spread our enthusiasm, and get a lot done. While it is just the start of things, it is a good first step, with a solid foundation behind it, full of potential.
I have to make a start on some negotiations today, so I'm glad to see this card. I hope it's energy will help me set off on a good foot. I'll also need inspiration for a review I have to write, and the enthusiasm to attend a meeting at Big Boy's school. Altogether, a busy day!
I am grateful for an injection of energy and enthusiasm.
