Ace of Wands: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
7-20-21 through 7-27-21
The Ace of Wands is this week’s Tarotcast card. We’ll be experiencing bursts of creativity, enthusiasm, vitality and assertiveness. The Ace of Wands represents the root of the powers of the Fire element. Yang (masculine energy): creativity, passion, courage, risk-taking, initiative and action.
All the Aces of the Tarot can be a bit confusing. They correspond to the Princesses (Pages) of each suit. This connection is stronger than that with cards 2 through 10 of their respective suits. The Ace of Wands has the Princess of Wands as its Throne. Together they rule the Cancer-Leo-Virgo celestial quadrant. This is the area above the North Pole and the continent of Asia.
On the Tree of Life the Ace of Wands represents the 1st sephiroth or sphere of Kether (the Crown, origin). Perceived through the element of Fire; Atziluth the Archetypal world. The origin of creative ideas. Energy beginning its journey into manifestation. The life force, the creative Will.
The Ace of Wands holds the energy, qualities and characteristics of the three Fire signs. These are: 1) bravery (Aries), 2) generosity (Leo) and 3) optimism (Sagittarius). The Ace of Wands represents the possibility for expansion, creativity and adventure. Also, inspiration and positive action.
In real-time astrology, the Sun completes its transit of Water-sign Cancer. It enters Fire-sign Leo on July 22nd. Leo’s warm, friendly and sometimes dramatic energy takes center stage. Venus enters Earth-sign Virgo on July 21st. We show our love through practical actions. We may run errands or do favors for those we care about. Routine chores or detail work, cleaning and organizing are the focus. Love makes rational sense and has a purpose with this transit.
These placements are in harmonious alignment with the energy of this week’s card.
“Ageless night. Careless day. Fate reaches out a hand – to touch the edge of destiny. A story with no end…”
On July 23rd we have a Full Moon in Air-sign Aquarius. This lunation reminds us of our need for community and friendship. We’re impartial and objective in our thinking. We focus on ways to give back to our community. Group support is important now.
“I got a plan and it’s here in my hand but it’s all made of rights –
We’re the enforcers, the sorcerer’s orphans, and we know why we fight…”
When Mercury enters Leo on July 27th, we’re more confident. Our thoughts take on a grand scale. The bigger the goal, the better. We’re persuasive in our communication. But we may also be theatrical and flamboyant. Avoid Drama Queen or Drama King antics.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes arrogance. Avoid over-confidence. This card indicates failure through over-ambition, or destruction through aggression.
Let’s focus on new beginnings. Engage in movement, development and optimistic exploration of future potential.
Power colors: the brilliant iridescence reflected from pure white light. The colors of flame and sunshine: red, red-orange, yellow and gold.
Power stones: Fire opal, ruby, carnelian, garnet, red jasper. Bloodstone, quartz crystal, tiger’s eye, rhodochrosite and agate. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to enhance your fiery passions and creativity.
Power metals: gold and brass. Especially yellow or rose gold. Wear with pride but not arrogance!
Power fragrances: hibiscus, red poppy, citrus scents of lemon, orange and lime. Juniper and cinnamon. These scents will enhance feelings of optimism about the future. They will also help us to recognize new opportunities.
Power foods: foods prepared with allspice, basil and cinnamon. Also oranges, limes, lemons, garlic and onion. Add some red peppers (spicy – how about some Thai, Cajun or Caribbean food?!) All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
