On a divinatory level, the Ace of Wands heralds a rush of creative energy not yet formulated into a specific goal or plan. Instead, we feel a restlessness and dissatisfaction with present circumstances combined with the strong intuition that anything and everything is possible.
That’s exactly the problem.
For the Kabbalist, today’s energy is the equivalent of Kether (also known as Keter), where God’s self-creating aspect first enters the Tree of Life. At this point, by it’s very nature the creative force has no form.
It’s only with the next stage and the next and the next after that, that anything will ever come of that which inspires us today.
Yet with the energy so strong, there’s a temptation to rush out, willy nilly, to conquer the world leaving the ‘details’ to fall into place.
This is the danger of today.
One of the most important lessons the Kabbalah teaches us is that the world in which we live is a closed system; energy created can be transformed but it never goes away.
Therefore, we can either (1) take active, positive steps to the channel the energy of an Ace of Wands day into worldly success (be it a new project at our job or at home in the garden or maybe even the kitchen) or (2) let it turn sour and sit heavy in the pit of our psyche in the form of regret or failure.
Either way, today’s energy stays with us forever.
