A Complete Guide to the Suit of Wands

Picture the scene: a psychic is giving you a tarot reading and all the cards are drawn from the Suit of Wands. What does this mean for you? Should you be happy, sad, nervous?

Unlike the major arcana, the Suit of Wands is a minor arcana. This means that, like a suit of playing cards, there are several different cards from the suit. Each of these can have different meanings and interpretations. Yet there are some common meanings behind all the cards from the Suit of Wands.

Ready to find out what the Suit of Wands means for your reading? Then please, read on and find out!

What Is the Suit Of Wands Associated With?

The Suit of Wands has one common association across all its cards: the element of fire. This element is associated with passion, creativity, power, and ambition. The element of fire is associated with changes in your life and being driven.

Yet the element of fire doesn't have wholly positive associations. It can warn of egotism and impulsiveness. If the Wands come up while you're thinking of making a decision, pause: it could be rash.

The Suit of Wands is also associated with the astrological houses of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

What Does the Suit of Wands Mean For You?

When you're drawing tarot cards, the Suit of Wands often reflects a change in your life. It could mean that you are about to start a new career, get promoted, or be successful in business.

However, it can also mean that you need to be more grounded. Make sure that any confidence you're feeling isn't drifting into arrogance. If you're feeling like life is buffeting you along, you may get Wands too: are you feeling like you're searching for purpose in your life?

When it comes to actions that you're considering, Wands means that you should pause and think about the decision. However, if you can't see any issues with the project, push forward: your drive may well help you succeed.

What Does the Suit of Wands Mean For Love?

When people start reading tarot cards or having readings, some of the most common questions are about how the cards relate to their love lives. When it comes to the Suit of Wands, that fiery passion can prove useful.

When it comes to cards that point towards love, you can't get better than the Lovers, but the Wands are a powerful minor arcana. In the upright position, the Suit of Wands can reflect feelings of passion, intimacy, and fertility. In the inverted position, the Suit of Wands has opposite meanings: it can represent infidelity and the dissolution of a relationship.
