Eight of Wands Upright Draw Meaning

The struggles brought forth by the Seven of Wands have been cleared away, leaving a clear view of a beautiful landscape below. You have the freedom to move, and your activities are no longer stagnated at the top of the hill. However, though you have a high energy level right now and are motivated to accomplish your goals, you need to figure out how to structure this explosive energy constructively. If you can channel this energy properly, your productivity will skyrocket.

Tasks that impeded you before will now be completed much more rapidly. Furthermore, something new and exciting is on the horizon. Eight of Wands often indicates air travel that results in a whirlwind of activity abroad, like a business trip or backpacking adventure.

Yet, the Eight of Wands also have a negative side. All this haste may result in a bad decision that turns all your hard work to waste.

Eight of Wands In Love and Relationships

Again, do not push someone unless they are ready. You may be feeling something that they aren’t, so give them time to process the information. If you act too impatient, you will merely flip the off switch on what could be a wonderful relationship. Also, apply this to yourself. You may not be ready for a long term commitment yet, so don’t force yourself to do something that doesn’t feel “right.”

For most people, impatience is easier than patience. However, mastering the art of patience is a necessary skill for unlocking the ability to appreciate stillness and peace. Learn to sit still, in silence. Learn to be without imposing who you’re on the world around you. That is the Eight of Wands.

Eight of Wands In Career And Finances

Patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to the Eight of Wands and what it means for work and finances. You’re probably at a point in your life when you’re waiting for others to do their job so you can move on with yours. Perhaps you’re looking for a transfer or a work visa or something similar. Be patient. Don’t push others, even if you think they need it. Give those you’re forced to rely on the benefit of the doubt.

This time around, you’re not in the position to call the shots–both in business and finances. In terms of money, nothing is moving. You’re stagnant, which may or may not be a good thing. Save money in more stable investments. Avoid risky business and curb your spending.
