As the Aces are the beginning of a cycle, the primary meaning of The Ace of Wands Tarot Card points to that of a new idea or business opportunity. It shows inventiveness and there might be a proposal, phone call or a letter indicating a potential business opportunity. A new beginning
It would be a good card to turn up in case of a question relating a new business or endeavor. But this card is related to the work or the project itself, not the profitability or financial matters relating to it. For that one needs to look at the surrounding cards.
The Wands Tarot Card Suit relates to the career and the view towards the career. Therefor it’s possible that the cards are indicating the Questioners ideas about his career, rather than actual career relating matters.
Because of this, the card could symbolize the birth of an idea of a business venture in stead of being the business venture itself. The idea may be there, but it’s up to the individual to act on it or not.
Though this suit relates primarily to the career, sometimes the ace may foresee a birth of a child. This interpretation is totally dependent on the surrounding cards.
