The only time I would be concerned is if The Ace of Wands appeared in an outcome or future position. Aces are supposed to appear in the beginning, not in the future. Therefore, I read an Ace in the future as a sign that a relationship is not going to progress past the initial stages. It can also mean that you and your partner will separate for a time, and then reunite (for relationship interpretations, be sure to check out my Love Tarot Meanings e-book).
