Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
What a perfect card for kicking off the first week of Spring, starring the Sun in initiatory Aries! Welcome to the Ace of Wands!
From last week’s High Priestess of contemplation and mysticism, the cards now are sending a clear message that we are ready to take action. This is not the time for passivity, confusion, analysis, or emotions; now is the time to make things happen.
Like all the Aces of the suits, this card holds all the potential and power of its element.
And the Wands rule the element of Fire (in most systems of the Tarot), so we are seeing the genesis of energy, manifesting, and creativity.
The hand of Mystery offers the sprouting branch, so obviously phallic, with its leaves surrounded by “yods,” the symbols that represent the name of the Divine, often translated literally as “the finger of God.” I love that these yods are green, merging into the young leaves that sprout from the wand. This is a living gift of creative energy from Creator.
Whether it is our heart’s desire, or even the conception or birth of a child, big magic is crackling this week.
What do you need to get the ball rolling? Tarot author and expert, Rachel Pollack, sums it up clearly. “At the beginning of some situation, no card could signal a better start.” It is time to turn our dreams and potential into reality!
This week, expect a great gift of renewed vigor, sexual energy, and a love of life. Let this new Springtime energy “fire you up!” Look for new opportunities to bring your dreams to life.
This is a time of enormous creativity, enthusiasm, and growth. You are being given a divine spark of inspiration, power, and magic – use it well, for it is certain to launch you into illuminating, amazing, and quite possibly steamy new adventures.
If you could wave a magic wand and manifest the urges of your truest passions, what would change?
What creative project have you been longing to begin? In what way is it time for you to take the initiative? Go for it!
This week, step into the bright lights, and make things happen!
Let joyfulness, creativity, and your deepest, most affirming desires inflame your passions, for a sizzling new beginning is upon you.
It’s no longer the time to consider, ruminate, or to wish. It’s time to step into your personal power and act for your own highest good.
Real magic is in your hands; yours is the power of transformation.
An’ it harm none, do as you will. But for heaven’s sake — DO!
