Tarot Wands

The Wands Tarot Suit.

The 14 Cards of the Tarot Wands Suit and Their Meanings


Wands Archetype:
Materialism - earthly matters.

Wands correspond to Clubs in a regular deck of cards. Their Greek element is earth. They stand for everything earth-bound and concrete. In the four classes of feudal society, this suit is linked to that of agriculture, the peasants.





       When a Wands card appears in a reading, its message is concrete: something to do or something done, work and struggle but also their reward in palpable results.

       Here are the 14 cards of the Wands suit and what they mean in Tarot card divination (click the card image to see a larger version of it):



Tarot Minor Arcana card: Ace of Wands

Ace of Wands

Every Ace is sort of an exclamation mark. Something important, even remarkable, will take place - in the case of Wands regarding your material circumstances. It's neither good nor bad, but very significant, indeed, affecting your relation to material matters.

Archetype

Drastic material change.

A. E. Waite's description of the card

Ambition.

A. E. Waite's description of the card

Missing the world and all the good things it has offered. The card of having partaken in something rewarding, but now being passed by, as if obsolete.

Archetype

Obsolete.

A. E. Waite's description of the card




Tarot Minor Arcana card: Four of Wands

Celebration.

A. E. Waite's description of the card
