An Intro To The Suit Of Wands

The tarot deck consists of 56 suit cards called the Minor Arcana and 22 cards called The Major Arcana. The Suit of Wands in the Tarot deck is also called rods, batons, staffs, or clubs depending on the deck. The element that the Wands is represented by is Fire. Its direction is South and the seasons are Spring and sometimes Summer. The colors are primarily reds to yellow. The astrological signs that correspond to wands are fire signs. They are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.

The wands are usually depicted with fiery objects that adorn the pictures of the tarot deck suit. In general the Suit of wands represent: virility, growth, enterprise, creativity, self development, inspiration, energy, clear perception, enlightenment, passion and desire. It is a card that mirrors what is important to one’s inner self. In our daily lives these cards can represent our career path.

Like a fire burning and the fire element; wands indicate all the things you do during the course of a day to keep you busy. This suit encompasses working both outside and in the home. When we see wands in a spread it is telling us that there is ideas, growth and expansion around the situation. Wands represent our original thoughts. Thoughts start as seeds that grow and flourish if we tend to them the right ways. Many wands in a reading mean that the conditions that the querent finds themselves in are always conceived as a thought first and then developed into an idea.

Wands represent future orientated energy that is both active and inventive. When we see wands in a reading it tells us about the possibilities and movement of a situation. Of course, the Wands have both a positive and negative side to them. When in reverse or a spread that has negative implications; wands can mean the scorching side of fire. That means restlessness, anger, violence, pride, mischief, disruption and unwillingness as starters depending on the spread.  

In general terms, wands represent career, enterprise, and work. They also mean the beginning of identifying and starting a new course in one’s life. This can take the form of self development and accomplishment.

An Intro To The Suit Of Cups

Photo by Los Muertos Crew on

The suits of Cups in a Tarot deck are correlated to suits of hearts in regular playing Cards. They are also identified as Vessels, Cauldrons, Goblets or Chalices depending on the type of tarot deck it is associated with. Like the feelings we get that correspond to our hearts; cups represent those types of emotions. They deal with love, emotions, and feelings. Cups deal with the emotional level of our consciousnesses. Cups also reflect our spontaneous responses and our habitual reactions at our emotional level. 

The direction the suit of Cups is ruled by is the East. Its element is Water and its color blue. The Cups are associated with the deep mysteries of the essence of water. The water Element is a symbol  associated with the subconscious mind and reason. In the artwork you will often see flowing and watery objects with the Cups suit. The Zodiac signs associated with Cups are water signs. They are Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. The season it corresponds to is the Fall (Although there are some readers that also relate the suit of cups to Summer) Cups are Yin or feminine energy. The Cups also relate to the lunar and tidal cycles of the earth. They are the dreamlike aspect of the Minor Arcana. (The minor Arcana is that part of the Tarot Deck composed of 4 suits and Court Cards.) 

In tarot readings they represent; psychic and intuitiveness, the arts, fantasy and illusion, fertility, emotions, spirituality, sacred sexuality, grace and serenity. It is a suit of love and happiness. When we see a lot of cups in a spread it is telling us the person in question is seeking solutions to emotional matters of the heart, emotional conflicts and love matters.

In terms of symbolism The Suit of Cups have been likened to the Holy Grail Chalice, the stone cup of Soma, Isis’s Pomegranate Cup, The Persian Cup of Jamshid, The Bloody Mysteries, and the Christian Communion Cup. It represents the holding of deepness, the well or memory and the record of our existence. Cups are associated with anything emotional from marriage, to personal relationships to possessions and concerns that affect us emotionally. This includes anything affecting partnerships including work relationships and, of course, interpersonal relationships.
