About The Wands

The Suit of Wands is associated with that which makes us individual—our enthusiasm, self-awareness and concepts, personal energy, and personalities. Within the Wands are instinctive energies, inspiration, determination, intuition, and ambition. Though Wands are connected to the element of fire, they are indicative of the good kind of fiery passion for things that occupy your time (hobbies and so on).

The Seven of Wands: Upright Draw

This clearly is a sign to hold your ground despite whatever challenges may come your way. Though you may not always make the best decisions, you clearly have the strength and determination to remain on top of what has to be done. If you think of yourself as a lover, not a fighter, then now is the time to realize that you have it inside you to stand up for what you believe in.

However, you’re not going to win every single battle, and that’s life. Whether you’re simply giving a speech on a highly debatable topic or find yourself living in a manner that draws contempt and criticism, take the Seven of Wands as motivation to declare who you’re and say what you won’t back down from.

It is a classic case of picking your battles. Sometimes it is just not worth it, and the drain on your happiness is too great. Know when to put the wand down and walk away.

Seven of Wands In Love and Relationships

Try something new — something you have always wanted to do that is outside of your comfort zone. By doing so, you’re opening the door to meet new people that have similar ideas as you do. Also, if you’re in a committed relationship, the Seven of Wands indicates that you have to start speaking your mind more readily if you hope to take things to the next level–whatever that may be for you. Just remember to be thoughtful when speaking to your partner.

Castaway your doubts. Go forward, pushing through the challenges to rise above them all. With careful planning and courage, you can overcome whatever crosses your path.

Seven of Wands In Career And Finances

The Seven of Wands emphasizes a single person. In other words, if you’ve thought that self-employment is the proper option for you, then now is the time to take that way of life for a test drive. Keep in mind that it’s going to take time and effort. You can’t just start a business wearing the wrong shoes! Be logical about how you spend your money, start your business endeavors, and work at your current job.

The plus side is that money is on the upswing. Think long-term money-saving, though.

The Seven of Wands: Understanding the Rider Waite Imagery

Often in the Seven of Wands, we see a lone person brandishing a stick atop a hill; there are six other “wands” pointed at them, meaning that their enemies are out of sight. Their defensive position shows that they are retaliating courageously against that which would hurt them. Perhaps we can refer to this person as the “King of the Hill,” for they are fighting for their right to be there. However, have you noticed they are wearing two different shoes? Though the King of the Hill has the best position, their footing is unbalanced.
