Ace of Wands Tarot Card in Reverse Meaning

Counter to its upright meaning, the Ace of Wands when pulled in a reversed position often suggests that you’re lacking “go-getter” energy right now. While you may be wishing you were feeling creativity and passion, it just hasn’t been there. If that meaning resonates with you, you’re encouraged to be patient and compassionate with yourself. Let creative energy find you when it’s time.

It may be the case, though, that you’ve been feeling that energy present, but you haven’t been able to focus and channel it into productive action. If that feels more true, the Ace of Wands in reverse suggests that you take some time to get more in touch with a sense of purpose around what you want to do. When you’re able to connect the course of action with a deeper meaning, you’ll more easily be able to plug all the way into that energy.
