The Ace of Wands, Ace of Rods or Ace of Batons is traditionally represented as a single stick, or branch, standing, or being held, upright. It's symbology is simple, it has the element of fire and a numerological value of 1. As a 1 it represents a new beginning and, with fire as the element, this beginning has to do with the home, community or work. Surrounding cards should help in narrowing down which aspect of the home or work this beginning will occur. For example it could be a new job (responsibility, chore, project) or new home, sometimes it can mean a new addition to a home, a new family member. The element of fire and this suite of the minor arcana has an creative aspect. In this case the card could point to a new venture or enterprise or even simply the planting of a garden at home.
