A general overview of the Wands cards
The suit of Wands corresponds to the suit of Diamonds in a traditional card game. It is also associated with the element of fire and the season of spring. The Wands are crossed by an extremely powerful principle of action, like the vital force that pushes you to move after a long winter of hibernation. These cards always favor taking the initiative, daring and dynamism. The suit of Wands also has a close relationship with the body. It is the raw energy that encourages you to move and make efforts. The force that makes things happen. A fundamental impulse that compels you to try to get closer to your dreams. It has an all encompassing influence, over your personal sphere as well as your professional life. Like a spark that ignites the fire, the Wands also evokes your ability to plan and organize your life around the things that matter most to you. This action is always deployed in the long term.
When they appear upside down in a Tarot draw, the Wands refer to inaction, stagnation and boredom. They reflect the existence of a number of blockages, which are temporarily preventing the consultant from evolving as they would like. Inverted Wands can also be a sign of misused energy, for example, energy used without a precise aim, or for totally selfish purposes.
