The Ace of Wands card has a lovely azure blue background as the sky and lush greenery in the landscape. At a distance a castle is shown to the left - the castle represents all the opportunities and the promises thereof.

The main feature of the card is a hand that seems to be reaching out of the cloud to grasp a wand. The wand is still flowering - symbolizing growth and development.

The hand reaching out of the cloud or sky (heaven) is a representation of a spiritual opportunity or offer that is being made. The leaves that float down with the wind speak of the balance between material achievements and spiritual gains.

Upright Position: In a reading, this card is an indication of opportunities to make new beginnings. This is mostly all about action. The subject is charged up about some new ideas and cannot wait to put them to work. The Ace also represents a nascent stage. It is all about potentials that creativity has to turn the moment into a special one. The card may also signify a birth in the family.

Reversed Position: Reversed, the card speaks about cancellations of plans and postponement of schedules. It may suggest a lack of clear direction when the subject is unclear of what she/he wants out of life. It can be frustrating for any person. It may also indicate that the person is so bogged down with the present responsibilities that she/he finds it difficult to let fresh ideas creep in.
