Fire is associated with the suit of wands in tarot. This is a suit of energy, of passion, of ideas, of inspiration. Things which aren’t yet real. Beginnings. It is what fuels us. That spark of excitement when you get an idea. And like fire, it can be creative or destructive. It can fuel you or it can cause you to burn out.
This selection of animals are from warm habitats but they also have fiery energy, speed and movement or a way of poisoning predators which may be why they have been included.
For me, they mostly seemed intuitively fire cards except perhaps the elephant. Despite it’s warm habitat, to me, the elephant feels like an earth card. However, as we will see, fire is a fitting element for this amazing creature.
