The Suit of Wands

Written April 2, 2021

I used to feel like I understood what wands were all about, but these days they feel so opaque to me. The wands portray an ever escalating conflict, one that ends in exhausted, lonely victory. Wands are... a sense of will and purpose? Drive? Meaning?


Herein is a “secret” expressed in Smith’s Ace of Wands: if the mysterious hand were to let go, the wand itself would remain in place.

The Ace of Wands and the Expanded Category of Fire


The daughter of wands is a figure who allows herself to be tossed about and surprised by this energy. What does that mean? Maybe it means allowing your sense of self to be changed & transformed outside of your control.
