Ace of Wands Description and Symbolism

A single white hand holds a wand bursting with fresh green leaves. The hand is white and devoid of color, which suggests the potential to manifest anything you want. Even the sky is white, beckoning you to begin anew. The blank slate or “white board” is yours to draw whatever pleases you. The cloud is tinged with gray. There is a castle in the background, surrounded by green and purple mountains. This suggests a mathematical component to all of things that are manifested. Behind even the simplest mountain are the fundamental mathematics that sustain the universe. Even though they look like cold, purple mountains, they are actually feeding the lush green foreground and creating the warm creek that runs underneath the wand. In esoteric studies, mountains represent attainment of the Great Work.

In front of the castle and mountains are three green trees with a little creek running through the landscape. These are the subconscious and fertile thoughts that manifest themselves in the lush green landscape.
