In the Aces of the Tarot cards there appears a hand coming forth from the clouds. What is this hand? Why it is the hand of God in the act of creation. Example, the picture below is from 1493 and is titled “First Day of Creation”. On the top left corner we see a hand coming forth from a cloud. This is the hand of God, creating the World. Compared tom the Ace of Wands or any other Ace card. This symbolizes the creative powers of the Ace, they are a source of beginning, divine power putting something into motion. A gift from above, a seed that is planted.
