Fire and The Suit of Wands

Fire has two faces, it can be a motivating asset or it can be total destruction. Fire is a combustible element created by action, in the tarot it’s a metaphor for the consequences that come from our decisions. Fire is most beneficial when it is controlled, but it has a mind of its own and must be used with care. Fire is beautiful when it inspires us to higher levels of passion, creativity and is the fuel for ambition. But this element can have a dark side making one quick to anger and prone to having explosive relationships. Fire can change its course in a moments notice and loves adventure. If you are with a Fire sign don’t expect to keep them cooped up at home all the time. Being the most mystical element it senses the world through intuition and instinct, those fueled by fire are more willing to take risks than other elements. Fire doesn't think, it acts. Fire shines naturally and gives those associated with it a strong sense of self.

Fire is also connected to the Sun, Mars and Jupiter. The Sun is our self, ego and personality; this is everything inside of you and what you project to the world. Mars represents passion, ambition and drive which explains the extroverted and hard working characteristics of Fire signs. Expansion, adventure and travel all fall under Jupiter’s domain. Fire embodies all of this in the nature of a Fire sign to roam and expand its domain. Fire is spirit. It is what we are all made of at our core.

This suit is short tempered and ready to rumble! Wands are passionate, active and impatient. Conflicts and physical challenges bring the suit of wands to life! Wands can be very focused and hard working, but they like to see results. If they don’t, they are likely to pursue something else. Wands people would rather die on their feet than live life on their knees. Wands people are not made to sit at a desk all day unless you’re inducing them into a depression. Wand energy is forthright, assertive and unafraid of conflict. This suit is very transparent in the sense of what you see is what you get.
