Single Card Focus: Ace of Wands to Mitigate Boredom and Burnout

Feeling a kind of summer blahness, I decided to pull a single card focus, and I got the fresh and zingy energy of the Ace of Wands--a card of creative and new beginnings. As a creative person (which frankly everyone is) I particularly enjoy the idea of starting a creative project or otherwise sinking my teeth into some venture that will give me a fiery focus. I definitely do better when I have a creative, personal goal. I find myself feeling pretty bland when I don't create and start things. Pursuing things, no matter how small or seemingly significant, add up to a lot over a lifetime. We don't realize until they're not there how much they enhance our life. To quote Vonnegut:

“Nobody will stop you from creating. Do it tonight. Do it tomorrow. That is the way to make your soul grow – whether there is a market for it or not! The kick of creation is the act of creating, not anything that happens afterward. I would tell all of you watching this screen: Before you go to bed, write a four line poem. Make it as good as you can. Don’t show it to anybody. Put it where nobody will find it. And you will discover that you have your reward.”

Definitely a timely and important reminder from the tarot in the form of a single card draw!



  1. Can't wait to see what that Ace of Wands energy prompts in you :)

    1. Ha, I don't know yet--I am still pondering a suitable summer project. But Vonnegut is right--it's good to just start something. It really doesn't matter how 'bad' it is or whether you'll do anything with it or sell it. Those can be creativity killers... ;D
