Tarot Comparisons: Ace of Wands

Let’s take a look at the Ace of Wands. Traditionally this card is read as the start of a creative project when upright and a lack of creative passion when reversed.

The way we interpret a card can change based on the art of the card itself. Compare the following Ace of Wands:

RWS1W

Rider Waite Tarot

D1W

Deviant Moon

Th1W

Thoth

CE1W

Cat’s Eye

How does the message of inspiration and creation get changed or enhanced in the four cards.

Timing #Tarot Tricks

Do you use timing in your Tarot readings? It can be difficult sometimes to pin things down. Here is one way to look at this.

The suits can be seen as seasons of the year. Typically, Wands represent spring because they are the suit of the East for many. The East is about youth and new ideas. Wands are also the fastest suit so they can be seen as days. You would use the numbers of the suit to determine the exact day. For instance the 6 of Wands in answer to when something was going to happen would be six days.

This is the energy of air. Swords are the the suit of the South or Summer in this system. They represent passion and energy. This suit represents weeks rather than days. The 3 of Swords here would mean your answer was coming within three weeks. This is the energy of fire.

Months can be seen in the suit of the west which is also the season of Autumn. Emotions can take a bit longer to process so here we have months for the timing. Court cards are also numbered so here the King of Cups would represent fourteen months. This is the energy of water.

That leaves Winter and North to the suit of Pentacles. It is a much slower energy. It stands for years in this timing table. The Page of Earth would mean 11 years. This is the energy of earth.
