Wands

Definition of Wands

The suit of wands is one of the four suits of the minor arcana of the tarot cards. Sometimes they are called staffs, rods or staves.

This suit represents the element of fire, and is associated with clubs in playing cards. In a card reading, this suit can help you to understand what actions to take. Wand cards can indicate what actions other people are taking, give you glimpses as to how things might be moving forward, or what obstacles could be in the way of that momentum. Wands are also associated with activity, ambition, enthusiasm and responses.

Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
