I also understand that this card is of the moment. Or at least, it is for me. The flame burns bright. It is hot. It is a little like an explosion.

And then I think of sex. I often think about sex when we look at fire in tarot. This card is like the orgasm. It is powerful. It is a rush. It is exciting and fulfilling. But it doesn't last for long. Well, not for everyone, anyway. If you think of it as exhillerating for the moments that it is happening, you could almost separate it from the 'working up' to that point and the contented after-glow that follows. It is just the present. That spark. That blow. A single flame or explosion is not always enough to keep a fire burning, but it is enough to trigger the possibilty.

I think of this as a burst of energy and enthusiasm.
