Good evening, goddesses! I'm sitting steeped in tea, incense, and tarot, and I have VERY good news-- because this week's card is the Ace of Staves, and that, my friends, is a fabulous, FABULOUS card!

The suit of Staves (or wands, in a traditional deck) is all about fiery creativity and productive energy. So it bodes well for your personal projects, artistic or professional. Staves are associated with the element of fire--can't you tell from the coloring of the card, and the brightly burning sun?--so it's an exciting, passionate, high-vibration suit. Pulling a Staves card tells us that now is a good time to get things done. To start the project we've been dreaming of, or re-set our intentions for a current pursuit.

But that's not all. The Ace of Staves in particular is EXTREMELY exciting. Aces, in any suit, are the purest expression of that suit's properties. Aces are the first card of the suit, so they signify beginnings. Depicted on this card we see one single stave bursting forth from the fertile ground, in front of the new morning's sun (or that's how I interpret it). To me, this signifies the brand-new-morning feeling where ANYTHING is possible. The earth is full of energy for us to absorb and use; the Ace of Staves tells us that that energy is ripe for us right now, here, today.

This is a very optimistic card. It is an encouragement to begin, a reminder that embarking on your dreamt-of pursuit might be simpler than you imagine. It is a reassurance of creative strength, capability, and possibility.

Questions for this week: What do I want to begin? What do I want to renew? What's a pursuit I've always wanted to take up or attempt, but never have? How can I begin it? When I feel fiery creative energy, how I can fuel it? How can I feed my creativity, to keep the fire going?

It's gonna be a good week, loves. Remember-- the Ace of Staves is like a brand-new morning. Anything is possible right now. You can begin.
