Zoenchii writes about Spiritual Awakening, Witchcraft Education, and Psychic Energy.

The Wands Suit talks about your spirit, movements, actions, and passions. If you get more wands in your reading other than other suits, it may suggest that you need to take immediate action, plan strategies and keep your eyes on the prize. It may also suggest, especially on love readings, that you are heading into a passionate relationship, which unfortunately may be short-term.
