The Sexiest Suit of All: Suit of Wands Tarot Card Meanings in a Love Tarot Reading

If there is one suit in the tarot deck that refers to sexuality, it would be the Suit of Wands. The Suit of Wands refers to passion, fertility and sexuality. Its associated element is fire.  Fire is associated with excitement, creativity, and spirituality. In a love tarot reading, the wands often symbolize the sex drive, love objectives and a call to action or initiation. They can also represent loss of interest, infidelity, and a low sex drive. These are compelling cards when associated with love tarot readings. They can offer insight into the direction that a relationship is moving. They also can signify the impact of relationships to come.

It’s really important to recognize that this suit has multi-layered meanings. They do not always refer to romantic relationships. Often, their tarot card meanings refer to the career and the direction when is going in their life in general. In a tarot reading, the Suit of Wands refers to our personal power and personal development. They have a transformative energy that, when directed, can influence the course of our own lives.

Here’s an exercise that I have used for many years. When doing a love tarot reading, I mix the major arcana cards with the wand cards. I remove all the other cards in the tarot deck. The goal is to gain information on one’s stage of development and how this is impacting their romantic relationships. In my previous article, “Tarot Readings for the Relationship”, I identify the love and relationships tarot card meanings for each card of the major arcane tarot cards. Below, I elaborate on the suit of wands and how each of their meanings can be applied to a love and relationship tarot reading.
