If you get the wands cards during the reading, it is a sure shot sign that you want to do something exciting and daring.  Many a times when you need a definitive answer on something, that is when these cards show up in your spread.

Wands are meant to indicate the energy of progress and flow, advancement and improvement, and creation of something new.  Wands represent concepts, designs, development, and progress.

When the wands card turns up in your reading, it generally means you need to make a decision to something right away, or to completely start fresh.  Wands are influential and  intense cards that can influence you into making a major change, whether that be in your career, love life, or tell you to slow down when you are moving speedily.  But no matter what, you won’t be able to just sit idly by on your hands and watch life go by if you get the wands card, you will have to do something!

Tarot wands are associated with fire.  Fire is associated with intuitions.  It is also associated with being very passionate about things.  Creativity is also a big factor in fire signs.  Not only this, it is even associated with the zodiac signs of Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo.

For me, tarot is a very personal and private way to coversation with my higher self and the higher being that is out there in the universe. It is a way to ask questions and get answers. Although sometimes those answers may not be what we seek or seem to be out of place. It is a very non-traditional pack, although it does still have those aspects to it. It is called the Shapeshifter tarot. Because our lives are ever changing our paths shift, we become new people through metamorphosis all the time, and this deck really spoke to me as a person because of the changes that we all go through all the time.
