Ace of Wands

Today the Sun and Mercury move into Leo, shifting the focus from accessing our feelings and emotions to taking charge of our lives and making our goals a reality.

The Ace of Wands — this version from Nathalie Hertz’s gorgeous Fantastical Tarot — is all about manifesting your dreams and desires. Taking your life in your own hands. Following your Bliss. And going after your goals with the kind of gusto that makes saying “Yes!” an absolute rather than a maybe.

It’s about increased confidence, drive and enthusiasm. Ardor. Vitality. Passion. Creativity. Power. Potential.

The Wand in this card is a pillar of strength. The intricate dragon carvings suggest a sort of magical essence that is very much a part of the Ace of Wands. And there’s beauty and creativity present here as well. The vines and wildflowers springing up from its base reminds us that this card is less about might and more about merriment.

The birds flying in from the distance tell us that there may be messages coming our way. These aren’t always tangible (as in a verbal or written message). But can be gathered from our surroundings and applied just as powerfully.

The Ace of Wands is all about inspiration and potential. It invites you to ask yourself what you really want that you haven’t (up to now) put your whole heart and soul into? And what are the chances of making it a reality unless you do? This energy is about offering your intentions up to the Universe with every reason to believe you will be rewarded for doing so. With this in mind, it’s time to push all negativity aside and replace it with optimism and inspiration. If you’re truly serious about manifesting your desires, there is no time like the present to do it.

Ace of Spirals

On the heels of yesterday’s total Solar Eclipse of the Sun at 29° Pisces — and the last day of winter for those in the Northern Hemisphere — the Sun has now fully stepped into Aries.

What better card to honor this transition than the Ace of Spirals from the gorgeous Chrysalis Tarot? The card features the head of a Ram (symbol for Aries) with prominent spiraled horns.

Feathers from different species of birds encircle his head like a ceremonial headdress — I counted 22 in all, perhaps this is a symbolic reference to the 22 cards in the major arcana.

The Peacock feather — known as the “eyes of the stars” — is said to represent an awakening, awareness, insight and luck, all fine Aries keywords.

The Ace of Spirals is this deck’s version of the Ace of Wands. Its keyword is “Energy.” It refers to the Arian qualities of action, impulse, fearlessness and drive. Like all Aces, the Ace of Spirals is a pure, raw, untamed energy. It’s an essence that can be formed or shaped or planted like a seed.

This feels like a kinder, gentler Ram; there’s a soulfulness in his eyes and a certain dignity in his stance. He’s got an “all-knowing” quality about him, made even more distinct by the timelessness of the celtic knot that encircles his neck.

The Ace of Spirals — as well as the Sun moving into Aries — is all about inspiration and potential. It invites you to ask yourself what you really really want that you haven’t (up to now) put your whole heart and soul into? And what are the chances of making it a reality unless you do?

The Moon is in Aries today too — joining Mars, Uranus and the South Node — so there’s no dearth of this fiery, dynamic energy. It’s time to offer your intentions up to the Universe with every reason to expect you’ll be rewarded for doing so. It”s time to push all negativity aside and replace it with optimism and inspiration. If you’re truly serious about manifesting your desires, there is no time like the present to do it.

February 2015 Tarot Scopes featuring the Rider-Waite Tarot


ARIES: Magician

The Magician card is all about bringing your talents to the table and putting them to good use.

Perhaps you have been looking for a job or thinking of changing your occupation. If so it would be wise for you to sit down and assess exactly what it is you can bring to the table of any new employer or occupation you are chasing down.

This doesn’t need to be about you finding a job: it could be that you’re thinking about expanding your knowledge which makes you a little more employable and more valuable in the job market.

You may really be wishing to change jobs but are a little hesitant as you don’t think you have all that a new employer is looking for.

If this is the case think again because the card of the Magician is a strong indicator of a new job, change in careers and if you are happy in your current job it may be that you are about to be given more duties to perform.

Focus on the hands in this card you will see that one is pointed to the earth whilst the other is pointed to the heavens suggesting that you are aspiring to something great yet also grounded enough to see that you cannot just take a big jump and land in that greatness without a bit of preparation.

As Saturn has now left Scorpio and entered Sagittarius there is a definite difference to the energy around.

It is as if you have been released from the constrictions of the past few years and there is a brighter future coming your way. Sagittarius always has a way of making everything seem brighter and more positive and this is right in line with the energy of the Ace of Wands.

Any new project you are thinking of starting now would be a great time to begin.

The image on this Ace of Wands suggests there is a correlation between what you are thinking of doing on a higher level and bringing it into your life. If this is the case it will not be difficult.

Things will fall into place for you almost seamlessly as your thoughts and actions correlate to what is around you and help comes from unexpected sources.

There is an abundance of energy for you whether this be physical or mental and with this energy plus more importantly you are able to channel this energy into whatever you are doing. This is a good day to plough through your workload.

If you have been falling behind with your work this is the day to get on top of that. If you look at the image there is a sense of “as above, so below” as the energy is interconnecting between the Wand.

This also gives a sense of balance to your life today as you are blessed with a sense of rightness in what you are planning to do.

Great ideas start with a small spark and I suggest you follow your heart with any small spark that comes your way today… you never know where it will lead you.

It is no coincidence that we also see Mars trine the node today giving a sense of fate to the energy you are experiencing.

The world is your oyster today with a grand trine of planets in fire signs. As the Ace of Wands is the beginning of the fire sign energy in the tarot pack what better card to focus on for today.

It stands for energy, new projects, launching yourself in a different way — whether this be outwards in something you do differently in your life or inwards in something you start believing about yourself, which will propel you forward toward accomplishing your goals.

Mars, Jupiter and Uranus are in a grand trine today which gives you the extra energy (in abundance) to plow through anything you need to do.

This is also a great combination of planets as it generally heralds a time where you can work in a complementary way with what you have around you.

Mars gives you energy, Jupiter gives you luck and expansion of ideas whilst Uranus is the wild child and can turn your luck in any given direction.

Keep this in mind with what you plan to do today as you may find that circumstances change for you and you are sent in a totally different direction to that which you first started.

The Ace of Wands shows the dragon curled around the Ace of Wands with the gems in alignment with the heart area.

Ace of Bows

Ace of Bows

As Mars moves into Sagittarius today, you want to be thinking about your dreams, desires and intentions; as well as the actions you can take to turn them into a powerful reality.

The Ace of Bows (Wands in most decks) speaks of directing your energy toward your goals with purpose and intent: much the same way you’d take aim with an arrow and launch it at a distant target.

If you’ve ever done any archery, you know that you don’t just pick up an arrow and fling it haphazardly into the air. You have to pull back, focus on your objective and become one with the bow before you even shoot. Once you let go of the arrow, you’re committed to the outcome so you have to put everything you have into hitting your target.

This is the energy you want to keep in mind as you work on manifesting your goals. This card — called the “Spark of Life” here — refers to that raw, pure, unharnessed energy that is the Ace of Wands as it changes energetically from spark (idea) to flame (intention) to contact (manifestation).

The symbol for Sagittarius is the “archer” which is perfect for this card. And Mars is all about drive, initiative, energy and action: also perfect. Put them together and you have all the tools that are necessary to manifest your reality, via the Ace of Bows.

Sept 2014 Tarot Scopes featuring the Tarot of Delphi

Tarot of Delphi -- the Sun

ARIES: The Sun

This month should see you feeling a sense of satisfaction and contentment over recent accomplishments.

The Sun card is traditionally associated with vitality, warmth and a sense of feeling particularly “alive.” But in this version the focus is just as much on taking care of yourself and manifesting that vitality through soaking in the Sun’s rays and recharging your batteries.

The Sun, Mercury and Venus all move through your 6th house this month — the area associated with work and with self-improvement, which includes your physical and mental well-being. Rest and relaxation is just as essential to that process as are work and productivity.

The “Sun” in this card appears to be setting. It casts its rays onto the ocean in the background, shining across the surface like molten gold.

The image of the woman sleeping comfortably without a worry in the world perfectly captures the essence of the Sun. There’s a sense of effortlessness that’s associated with this card, even as the world keeps on turning around you.

Your ruler (Mars) moves into Sag this month (on the 13th) and into your 9th house — the area associated with personal growth and expansion. After that point there will be plenty of time to spread your wings and fly.

Be ready today for a powerful breakthrough. The Ace of Wands — like all Aces — refers to raw unformed energy and potential that can light a fire under you and ignite a new passion.

It’s a card of confidence, inspiration and promise than can awaken you to a whole new set of ideals.

tn this version of the card, the “Wand” is formed in the shape of a caduceus with the orb of the Sun emitting a shimmering white light down from the heavens. Twin serpents wind their way up the center in perfect symmetry. A pair of angel wings at the top spread out across the sky.

The caduceus symbol is traditionally linked with commerce, negotiations, eloquence and travel — due to its association with Hermes, the messenger of the gods. It’s also tied to alchemy and modern-day medicine and healing.

With respect to this Ace of Wands, the caduceus is representative of the Kundalini spiritual life force. Notice the glowing streams of energy that spiral upward along the column of light.

Today — as Jupiter moves into Leo — for the first time in over 12 years — you want to be thinking about what you want to accomplish during this next chapter in your life.

The Ace of Wands is card of passion and raw unformed energy. It’s the spark of an idea that can be harnessed and then channeled into something tangible and real.

This version of the card pairs the William Blake painting “Ancient of Days,” which portrays God as an architect creating the world, with a quote often attributed to Goethe:  “Whatever you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”

The Ace of Wands is a card of inspiration: it’s that fire that burns inside of each of us that even when it flickers or goes dim, it never completely dies out. It’s the spark of imagination, self-expression and passion that permits us to allow our “wildest dreams” to manifest — even if only in our dreams.

You can work with this energy yourself — depending on where this transit falls in your own natal chart. If you don’t know and would like to find out, feel free to post your birth date (as well as time if known and place of birth) in the comments section below, and we’ll be happy to tell you.

A new day is dawning today and awakening you to a world of possibilities.

The Ace of Wands represents a new beginning, courtesy of the creative spark that fuels your passions and drives. It asks you to open your heart to adventure, and to find inspiration all around you.

In this version of the card we encounter the Greek God Prometheus as he soars down from Olympus with the spark of fire he’s stolen from Zeus.

There’s no hesitation or consideration of the consequences — there’s just the passion and determination that is at the root of the Ace of Wands drive.

The Ace of Wands is creative, dynamic and courageous. And while — like Prometheus — it can also be impulsive and reckless, its primary function is motivation.

Of all the Aces, this one is the shaker and the mover: it’s the one that compels us to dream big, reach high and to let nothing stand in the way of manifesting our goals.

But Aces are also more about the spark of an idea, a plan or a decision than they are about action. As the Ace of Wands is ruled by Mars, which is a big part of the Cardinal Grand Cross that we’re all still in the throes of, it may not be the best time to take action.

ARIES: Queen of Wands

You may look calm and peaceful on the outside as if you hold the secret to the pyramids within you and could endure anything.

But just look at those flames flickering at the end of each wing… almost as if you are ready to “take off” or launch into a blazing mood which comes from nowhere.

This is a time to sit back and weigh up your options without the distraction of others and what they think, say or do.

Keep your own counsel and act accordingly with what is right for you. You have your eye on the outcome and know how to achieve it.

Notice how the bird in this card keeps her eye on the dragonfly… she is not about to let anything get in her way or dissuade her from the course she has chosen.

You have the energy within you to make your dreams come true… wish wisely and don’t waste your time and energy on the mundane.

Today is the perfect day to think about re-inventing yourself — courtesy of the spark of passion, inspiration and creative potential that is associated with the Ace of Wands.

The Ace of Wands — like all Aces — represents the pure unadulterated essence of its native element: in this case Fire. It’s a very dynamic and transformative energy that can be shaped and fashioned at will. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination — or your wildest dreams.

This version of the card is loaded in referential symbolism, with representations of fertility, creativity, inspiration, passion, expansion and growth. 

The wand itself is part of a tree, with roots stretching deep into the earth and branches reaching high into the sky. A rainbow spans the sky behind it, illuminating the tiny buds that are just starting to bloom.
