Memorizing Tarot: Suit of Wands

Memorizing Tarot: Suit of Wands

I simply could not slack off on the blog and memorization post any longer! Life has been one adventurous ride though the past few weeks. Today I attended a sales meeting at Berkshire Hathaway and have decided to sign with them when I get my license in less than a month! I am so excited to embark on the real estate journey! Since the last few memorization posts have taken several hours for me to complete I am going to restructure them a little different going forward. I will still include pictures and both upright and reversed position meanings, but you will notice a shorter description and the photos will be at the bottom of the post. I hope you still enjoy them and find them helpful! So here we go 🙂

 

OVERVIEW 

The suit of wands is the representative of the element fire. Wands represents wants, intuition, spirituality, and inspiration.

ACE OF WANDS

Upright: The Ace of Wands is the “go for it card”. You are showing extreme potential for success in your endeavors. Breakthrough moment. Can sometimes show an energy that you don’t know how to place or utilize. Listen to your intuition.

Reversed: Difficulty figuring out or defining what you want. Weighed down by responsibilities or commitments. Delays.

TWO OF WANDS 

Upright: The two of wands plays off the Ace of Wands. Where the Ace is about wanting and a desire to start a new path or a breakthrough moment, the two of wands is about putting it into action. You have the world in your hands (just like the card shows) you just need to start planning and putting it into motion.

Reversed: You may be fearful of stepping out of your comfort zone to achieve your goals or you have not been organized enough with it. If you get a reversed two of wands you should organize your thoughts and plans. Conversely,you may also be too convinced or cocky about your potential success.

THREE OF WANDS 

Upright: This card represents commitment to your plans. Your plans should already be well underway and the future possibilities lay before you. Opportunities to expand your horizons, travel, business plans, etc. Embrace change.

Reversed: Unaccomplished in the goals you have set for yourself. A feeling of wasted time. Do not engage in long term relationships when this card is present.

FOUR OF WANDS 

Upright: Harmonious home life. Celebration. Marriage. A good time to get together with family or loved ones. One of the most positive cards in the deck. Reaching a milestone on a project or endeavor.

FIVE OF WANDS

SIX OF WANDS 

Upright: Success. Public recognition. Confidence. You have not only achieved your goals but also harnessed your success and taken it in stride. Build on your personal brand and continued success. Sometimes it can reflect too much self-importance or inflated ego.
