Card in Reverse:
Times may be difficult right now. Motivation is hard to come by and inspiration seems to be no-where in sight. You may not know what you want to do in life right now and you can't seem to figure out how to get out of this rut.
Sometimes inspiration cannot be found, but it can find us. If you're struggling to become inspired, take some time away from what you're trying to do. It wont help you to keep running in circles. It will only waste your energy, making it harder and harder for creativity to flow. Rest your mind and body. Take a walk in nature and practice patience. Be still and present and eventually the inspiration will find you.

Upright: The Ace of Wands in love can speak of passion and excitement. Perhaps you will soon meet someone that lights a fire in you. Or if you are already in a relationship, things between you and your partner are going to heat up! There is lots of flirtation and attraction in the air, enjoy it!
Reversed: In reverse, the Ace of Wands can sometimes mean you will have an exciting love affair full of romance and passion, but it will soon burn out. The biggest flames often fizzle out the fastest. Commitment doesn't seem to be happening here for you now.
Alternatively, perhaps you've been in a long term relationship for a while and it no longer feels exciting. There is a lack of communication and flow within the relationship. Perhaps take some time with your partner and talk to them about what may not be working anymore.
Upright: Things seem to be going with with work for you right now. Inspiration is high, creativity is flowing and projects are growing as they should. Right now may be a good time to take some of that great energy and confront certain issues that may have prevented you from progressing in the past. Tackle them now so they do not pester you again in the future.
Reversed: Inspiration may be lacking right now. Things feel slow and the work load doesn't seem to get any smaller. Having little creativity can make it difficult to continue on projects, let alone finish any. Take a step back and try to ground yourself. Practice patience when it comes to your inspiration. Perhaps now is a good time to take a break if you can, and if you are unable to, seek some guidance from your peers. Talk to someone you don't usually talk to. Sometimes getting a fresh perspective can make all the difference.
