The 14 Cards of the Tarot Wands Suit and Their Meanings
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):
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.
Drastic material change.
Longing for the world and all it has to offer, although you may already have a decent share of it.
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.
The celebration of a homecoming of sorts. Returning from the world, enriched and pleased, receiving the praise and rewards for it.
Calamity that may be invigorating but can become costly. What seems easy at first turns complicated when ambitions collide.
Success and great gain in material matters, making others want to join you. But don't forget to prepare for rainy days that may come.
Struggle to hold on to what you have. Others try to take it from you.
Possessions on the move, risking to get lost. Hard work that is costly but necessary, to overcome several concrete obstacles.
Recovering after having been overwhelmed by too many disadvantages. You struggled hard, but everything was against you. You want to try again.
Too much to carry. Your workload is unreasonable, and still there's no certain reward ahead. Are you being used for others' profit?
Plenty of possibilities, so many that it's difficult to choose. Do something, and you will prosper. But wait no longer.
You have grasped the opportunity and boldly move forward. Great promises of success, as long as you just sit tightly on your saddle.
You have your possessions and know how to keep them, but do you know how to increase them? Don't settle with what you have, or it may wither.
Settling with possessions.
Wealth that is hard to keep. What's the point of prosperity if you don't trust that you can hold on to it? Envy is a poison also to the object of it.
