When I was learning tarot, I learned that the wands represented passion, lust, sex, and anger. But sometimes, it can represent spirituality. Spirituality in the wands? I have to admit, this has never sat right with me.
You see, the reason it hasn't 'felt' right with me, is because the type of energy that moves us to lust, passion, anger, etc. , is not the same type of energy that moves us to be selfless, respect, or to be humbled. The latter are typically associated with a more spiritual state of awareness.
Let's analyze this for a moment. Ego- based energies (passion, lust, anger, etc) originate in our lower chakras. They are earth-based energies that do not reside in the upper chakras. As our energy ascends, and we open up to the upper level energies, we'll feel love and compassion. If we ascend further, our energy moves into the upper regions where we find we are more connected with the Universe and open ourselves up to the spiritually-based energies.
Following this line of thought, I KNEW I had to create a deck that incorporated a spiritual suit. Just like every other element of creation, the Spirit Suit needs to be anchored in its own element to express itself properly. So, I did just that, incorporated a Spirit Suit in my deck, A King's Journey Tarot. I think it makes for a natural flow of energy through suits.
