A Walk Through the Thoth Tarot
The aces represent the roots of the four elements. They are distinct from the other small cards and there is no real manifestation of the element in its material form. They form a link between the small cards and the Princess. The Aces are not the elements themselves but the seeds of those elements.
Ace of Wands
This card represents the essence of the element of Fire in its inception. A solar-phallic outburst of flame from which spring lightnings in every direction. (BOT) Lady Harris also drew this Ace as a giant fiery Tree of Life.
This explosive and fiery energy starts the wands suit going, the seeds of desire - our Will getting ready to roll. This is a potent energy but it isn't formed yet, so be sure to create a plan of action, goals, something to aim this energy at. Then hold on tight!
