One of the boldest cards of the suit, the Ace of Staffs is a card about dynamism. It represents inspiration, success, and the beginning of some- thing new and exciting. In the image, we see the glow of fire and the subtly embossed letter Alif, the first letter of the Arabic script that is the beginning and ending, the Awwal and Akhir, Alpha and Omega, of all inner and outer realities, representing creation and the Divine creative potential within us. When this card appears for you, you are being directed to your inner creativity. It is time to open your heart up to allow inspiration to flow so that when you do create and manifest, you are doing so in sync with the Divine harmony.
