Ace of Wands
This tarot card is the epitome of passion. In a reading, it is a signal that creative pursuits are going to be met with tremendous success, as long as we can sustain our enthusiasm. Just like a light at the end of the tunnel, this card hits us with a bright jolt after a long dark night. The positivity and energy that it radiates are rejuvenating, and we are given a big thumbs up to begin new ventures. Often, we are not aware of the potential lying within us, and make assumptions about ourselves and our surroundings. It is important to continually assess these so that we can bridge the gap between where we are and where we want to be.
The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
