Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders.
— Henry David Thoreau
We draw closer to the zenith of the Light here in the Northern Hemisphere. Summer Solstice, the longest day and shortest night, is almost here. It is time to energize our dreams and potential! The Ace of Wands is about taking the steps to manifest that potential. While all of the Aces are the catalysts of the energy of the suit, since Wands are the Fire of the Tarot, this beginning spark of energy and creativity is quite literal.
Tarot scholar and expert, Rachel Pollack, states it beautifully: “At the beginning of some situation, no card could signal a better start.” The hand of Mystery holds out the sprouting branch, with its leaves surrounded by “yods,” the symbols that represent the name of the Divine. This is a gift given by Grace, not made by our own striving.
This week, expect a great gift of renewed vigor, sexual energy, and a love of life. Let the firey heat of Summer “fire you up!” Look for a new opportunity to make your dreams a reality. This is a time of enormous creativity, enthusiasm, and growth. It can even mean the conception or birth of a child.
You are being given a divine spark of inspiration, power, and magic – use it well, for it is certain to launch you into new adventures of enlightenment and passion.
What creative project have you been longing to begin? In what way is it time for you to take the initiative? This week, step into the limelight and make things happen! With a sunny outlook and plenty of energy to back it up, your ideas and desires can manifest.
Let joyfulness, creativity and your deepest, most loving desires inflame the life force in you, for a new beginning is upon you. Embrace this and move forward — your greatest Good is calling.
