If it seems like a good idea to you, it probably is. Seriously, if there’s no divine intervention, how bad of an idea can it really be? Start with your idea’s fundamentals to get the ball rolling then get its program rolling.
What’s really important is that you act now and quickly rather than planning hard. The sprouting wand represents a growing seed that has great potential. It most likely has the ability to grow into something sustainable and promising. Think of a spark, and how small it seems until it starts a fire.

Upright Ace of Wands in Romance
When upright in a love reading, this is a great time to pursue your latest idea. It’s likely that someone just caught your eye and you’re thinking about whether to pursue that romantic thread. Well, this is your sign to go for it! Your instincts and gut are probably telling you to do it, so follow them.
Plan ahead if you want, but this is the time for action. See someone you like? Don’t waste months planning the perfect pick-up line or first date. It will come to you naturally or not at all. But even if it doesn’t, nothing but moving forward will help you realize your fresh inspiration or romance.
It isn’t about finding the perfect idea, latching onto it, and then planning ruthlessly for perfect execution. This card is about finding a fresh, new idea and rolling with it. The best situation for you here is one where you can adapt to the challenges to your idea as you manifest it.

Upright Ace of Wands in Career
In a career and finances sense, the Ace of Wands implies that you need to pursue your passion. Maybe you’re working in a job that isn’t quite your true passion? If so, this is a sign that it’s time for you to pick up your true passions and go!
Naturally, don’t leave on a whim and without preparation. Following your gut or passion doesn’t mean carelessness or fiscal irresponsibility. If you need the money from your current job, don’t pursue your passion until you really feel you have enough.
Once you do have financial security though, there’s no excuse not to pursue your passions. Isn’t there something you’ve always wanted to do? Maybe a specific kind of business, like opening your own blacksmith’s forge? Whatever your fresh, new idea is, this is the sign to prepare to pursue it.
Pursuit of your new idea is a sign that your potential can grow. Nobody wants to be stuck in a 9-5 job that doesn’t align with their Higher Self or true passion. This is the sign to listen to your new idea and follow a new path to your dreams!
What does the Reversed Ace of Wands mean?
Like the upright Ace of Wands, the Ace of Wands reversed implies that you’ve recently had a new idea. It’s emerging from within you, ready for realization. However, you’re still unsure how you’ll manifest it or what it will look like when you’re done.
Energy and passion, you might have in spades. But you don’t really have a clear outlet to express them, nor do you have the form of your idea. It’s also possible you’re waiting for a sign or something to happen before you make your move on this idea.
Keeping the idea private until you’re more confident about it is also a possible meaning. You’re looking for a way to harness all this creative energy pressure-cooking inside you without much success. Because of this, you’re finding it difficult to see your purpose in life.
Without direction, you’ll feel your energy sapped. No motivation or inspiration will really do that to a person. Remedying this first requires that you identify a direction. Preferably, the direction of your passions. You can’t live your life only avoiding things you don’t want. Actively pursuing things you want is the only real way to motivate yourself.
If you identify your true passion, working towards that goal is more likely to motivate you. Take some time to reflect on what your true passions and aspirations in life are. Frustrating delays are also happening when you do follow your passions, so don’t give up! Don’t think of the delays as failures; think of them as delayed successes.
Reversed Ace of Wands in Romance
In a love reading, the reversed Ace of Wands implies that you do in fact have a romantic interest! However, you’re not sure if your feelings for that person are real. It could also be the other way around, where a certain person isn’t sure that they have an interest in you just yet.
In present romances, this can mean that you’ve thought of something to help your relationship along. Still, you’re unsure as to whether it will work or how your partner will react to it. So, out of fear, you keep the idea hidden and never mention it.
Don’t do this to yourself. Your gut is probably telling you that your partner needs to hear what your thoughts are. Then, you tell yourself that your partner will leave you if you do. But do you really want to stay in a relationship where you can’t tell your partner everything you’re thinking?
This card can also imply that your romance is aimless, or that aimlessness is due to one of you. If that’s the case, figuring out exactly where you are in your relationship should help. What are your goals and intentions for this relationship? The answer to that question will help you both along.
Reversed Ace of Wands in Career
In a career reading, the reversed Ace of Wands implies repression of your new idea. It’s likely that you have a new idea that might help the team along. However, you personally don’t know how to make it happen. Or you’re not sure you have the expertise to make such a comment.
Whichever the case is, your idea struggles to manifest because you’re not sure what you want yet. Despite this, you feel the urge to let your creative energies flow and manifest your idea. A remedy to this conundrum is to reflect on yourself.
What do you really want in the way of this career and your idea? Figuring out your goal in your career will help your idea take a more concrete shape. When it does, it becomes more likely that you will find the confidence to express it. And your team will be all the better for it.
