The Suit of Wands Tarot Cards Explained

The Suit of Wands in the Tarot Cards represent the element of Fire, and so are associated with passion, energy, drive and creativity. In tarot, the meaning of the Wands Suit can therefore often be around the projects and work we take on, as well as the physical energy we use to accomplish these tasks. There are 14 cards in total when it comes to wands tarot cards, also known as rods or staves in some Tarot decks. These are the Ace representing the number 1, all the way to the number 10, and the 4 “court cards”, which are often about fiery, driven people in our lives. These are the Page, Knight, Queen and King.
