The Suite of Wands is linked to the Element of Fire. A force that can quickly destroy, Fire also maintains and sustains life. It gives illumination, purification and dispels fear. It is a symbol of the superconscious and connection to all life.
Every tree was once a seed waiting to be nurtured and brought into being. The Ace of Cups represents the seed of love and connection. Not always romantic love because not everyone is looking for romantic love. It can also be the love and bond between friends and comrades. It represents the potential for emotional fulfilment, but being a tiny seed and the beginning of the journey of this suite, we don't yet know if that potential will be realised.
Like bodies of Water, our emotions can be calm and sustaining, or we can drown in them. The cards of the Suite of Cups show us how we create, sustain, and destroy relationships.
I like to call the 10 of Wands "Groundhog Day". The same dynamic has been playing out over and over, with no change in sight.
The 8 of Wands indicates strength and victory in the face of oppositional forces. When this card appears in a reading, it is letting you know that a battle is afoot. However, you can expect to meet any adversary with resilience and force.
The 8 of Wands shows good fortune, forward movement and a rapid course of events. It indicates a situation progressed enough that it's going to play out for good or for ill. It already has considerable momentum, and the outcome will be known almost immediately.
