The Ace of Wands represents the life-force energy itself and is inherently sexually charged. This does not mean that it needs to have a sexual expression but it is good news for anyone who has been suffering from a low sex drive.
If you do choose to channel this Ace’s energy into sexual activity, use protection unless you wish to conceive, as the card also indicates powerful procreative mojo.

The Ace of Wands in Love and Relationships
The Ace of Wands is a spark of passionate energy. This is the ultimate mojo card. If you get this card in a love reading, you can count on at least one person being powerfully attracted to the other. Charisma abounds. Of course, the opposite could be true if the card is reversed or ill-dignified.
It’s good to be mindful that spark is a thing of the moment. This is something that could fizzle and die if not acted on. Imagine what happens when you strike a match but do not use it to light something up. Real relationships take work.
Depending on surrounding cards, this Ace could signify a superficial attraction, lacking an in-depth connection and intimacy.
The Ace of Wands is the root of our very life force energy. Therefore it relates to sexual energy in both males and females but for obvious reasons (Fire=Masculine/Yang energy), it relates more to male virility and sexual health. A reversal could indicate impotence.
Intimate moments signified by the Ace of Wands will be passionate and physically vigorous but may not always lead to a deepening of emotional bonds. They are about being in the moment.
