If you were looking for a simple list of tarot card meanings, then you have come to the right place! Unfortunately there are too many tarot cards to include in a single article, especially as the meaning of each tarot card varies greatly on how it is positioned and where it is located in the laying out of the cards. For this article though, we thought we would try a short list of tarot card meanings for tarot cards that are in the Suit of Wands.
The Ace of Wands is also known as the Root of the Powers of Fire. If it is upright it can mean that the viewer is about to begin an exciting new career or project. It can also refer to fire’s essence, enthusiasm, ambition, inventiveness and creativity. It can symbolize an aggressive pursuit of a new adventure or situation and the foundation needed for future ideas, manhood and success. If the card is reversed, it means greed, impotence, bareness and sterility. It means that the viewer is likely to display such an over confidence in an upcoming situation that it will end badly. If the spread is for a woman it could mean that she has problems with men.
The Two of Wands is also called the Lord of Dominion. This card, when upright, means that the viewer has achieved success through some hard work and concentrated effort. It also symbolizes strength of character and it promises that the viewer’s ideas will soon be realized. It can also mean that the viewer should exercise the responsible use of wisdom and power that has been gained through personal experience. If it is reversed, it means that the viewer has displayed boundless naked ambition. It also shows that a worthless prize has been obtained and that the riches recently gotten by the viewer were gotten through ill gains. It shows that the viewer does not have much faith in himself or herself.
The Three of Wands is also named the Lord of Established Strength.

Meaning of each Tarot card tip is an intuitive art, but it is not fortune telling. Tarot will not tell you anything that you do not already know, and it cannot predict the future. Instead tarot sheds insight on issues that you might have been avoiding and helps point you in the direction of answers that you have been looking for.
Choosing a tarot deck is not an easy process. If you simply choose the cheapest deck or the first deck of tarot cards that crosses your path, the cards probably will not work for you. Use your intuition to decide which tarot cards are right for you. You will feel a connection that you cannot explain when you first set hands on the deck of tarot cards that you are meant to have.
