If you think about it, the suit of Wands are the only suit that are “alive” so to speak. They are budding with leaves and represent our passion, our energy, our ideas and things we want to create. The Wands also are all about our ability to get things done. The wands are all about how we work, how we live, how we leave our mark on the world. It’s the day to day energy we bring with us to work and play and the fired up temper we display when our ego is unhappy.
Fire is a fascinating element. It’s powerful, warm, and energetic, but can be destructive or quickly burn out. It’s the most powerful element but also the element with the least endurance. Without fuel, the fire can’t last.
Fire personalities are natural born leaders, builders, and innovators. Think Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Oprah. Those who are governed by fire have the most difficulty finding balance in their lives and often are prone to extremes.
