The Ace of Wands (final)


The first card in the Wands series that makes its debut is the Ace of Wands.

The color palette of the Wands is pink, mint green, and dark brown in celebration of spring. Particularly early spring before the weather becomes bearable and the cold of the winter has been shaken off and is a distant memory. The world is now recovering from death, and feels hollow and desolate, but with signs of life on the horizon, thus giving us hope for what is to come in the future.

It is a suit of new beginnings and hopes, focusing on the positive aspects of life and the opportunity to create and begin again. The colors are designed to illustrate potential, and it is my personal feeling that the most important moments in spring (and arguably life) are when we miraculously show a spark of life, insight, or strength after a long, hard tribulation.

To me, these are some of the most emotionally powerful moments in life. I chose to focus the suit of Wands in this "no man's land" between winter and summer, before life becomes completely comfortable and seasonal mindsets fully set in.
