Ace Of Wands

The meaning of the Ace of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot

The Ace of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot represents creativity in excitement, adventure, a challenge to motivate forward with courage and confidence.

Steadily, the wand plugged into the ground. From there, it spreads out a crimson light, like the usual reactions when flint stones collide in a pile of dust, so on, inspiration also originates from that light.

The spirits and wind goblins began to leave the residence. They hide in the shape of normal light spots, not very prominent, and then, escape from leaves, nooks, boulders and the sky. There was a flash of lightning. The challenge began to be revealed. Invitations were spread everywhere at dawn.

Once being set, the fire became unstable, seemingly unpredictable and was out of control. The source of that energy, unrestrained, exploded, frantically turned into a wildfire. Let’s take this wild opportunity and shine on the intense fire.

These animals are the spirits and guardians of the Wand: fox, cat, lion. They were brilliant with the light of wisdom and prudence, dashing like an arrow flying through the world, with the fiery flames of a fierce and powerful spirit.

Celtic Ogham

From A Druid Ogham

Ioho

Grace, death, letting go, endings, rest, the beauty of decay

Tree: Yew (Taxus spp.)

Letter: Y

Ioho symbolizes the acceptance of enduring realities and legacies of the past. If you draw Ioho, look for the end of a phase or cycle. Ioho suggests you are handling or will handle the matter at hand with dignity and grace.

Modern culture has spent a great deal of time running away from the ideas of death and decay as natural, welcome processes. As a result, we have a society obsessed with launching our species into space for fear of extinction, a medical industry bent on extending life long after it has ceased to have any quality, and a fixation on youth that motivates the middle aged to undergo brutal, grisly procedures in order to look twenty. When we frame aging (not just of human beings) in a sensible way, we understand that getting old isn’t so terrible. People age and die. Technologies change. Weeks become years. Eras fade away. Letting go is for the best.

Ioho is about accepting limits gracefully. We cannot control much of what is around us or what happens to us in life, but we can control a great deal of how we perceive it and what we decide to do about it.

Though this Ogham has profound similarities to the Death card of the Tarot, like that card, 99.9 percent of the time it is not to be taken literally. Drawing Ioho does not mean you or someone in your circle is fated for immediate death. Instead, it signifies the necessary end and inevitability of all things decaying and dying. More often than not, the death process is much slower than we impatient humans are able to bear. Look for a lesson that comes from the acceptance of endings rather than literal death.

Questions when you draw Ioho:
