The Symbolism in the "Ace of Wands" Tarot Card:

A disembodied hand holds a large wand firmly aloft. The falling leaves of the wand resemble small flames that are burning up rather than falling down, signifying this suits' firm connection to fire. A castle that doesn't seem to be attached to a village of any kind is featured in the lower left of the card, with a river meandering through the landscape.

The possibility or beginning of a fertile venture. The castle in the card can be the individual's if they work hard at it enough. The creative drive, birth, family, and virility.
