Wisdom of Wands Spread

On This Day

Fire is an event, not a thing. Heating wood or fuel releases volatile vapors that can readily combust with oxygen, and the incandescent bloom of gas further heats the fuel, perpetuating the cycle.

Today is the Flaming Fireball festival in Nejapa, El Salvador. Men dress as skeletons, divide into two teams, and hurl burning gasoline-soaked rag balls at each other. Commemorating a volcanic eruption in 1922, the local churches say it was Saint Jeronimo fighting off the Devil with balls of fire.

Summation of Spread

Wands address what makes us tick, why we get out of bed in the morning, and why we do what we do. Spiritually, they represent what is important to you at the core of your being— your passions and desires.

Are you ready to get moving? This night of hurling fire is associated with the suit of Wands, the raging magical flames of tarot. Wands represent the power of desire, spirituality, action, and inspiration. This spread is inspired by the suit of Wands.
