The Suit of Wands

The realm of wisdom, fire, revelation, spirituality & the Astral Light.

Spiritual practice and wisdom literature have been part of the human experience for millennia.  The tarot has been part of western mysticism for centuries.

The suit of wands illustrates the way wisdom manifests itself. This deck presupposes that human wisdom follows a pattern and that this pattern aligns with the fractal growth of plants and flowers. Many spiritual traditions grow out of a break with their parent traditions.  Each new spiritual tradition presents timeless wisdom, ever-new, in contemporary language.  The American Tarot is no different.

 



 

The suit of wands illustrates the fractal pattern behind many spiritual traditions.   It follows that pattern from sprouting insight, through expression and tradition, to institutional ossification and frigid detachment, and new insight once again.
