Card Meaning: Seven Of Wands

Seven of Wands


   Determined and full of resolve, the figure on the card is fighting against what seams to be a group of six armed opponents. He is standing on the elevated ground, symbolizing his courage and superior position in spite of their superior numbers. It also symbolizes the elevated position he has in terms of morals and ethics. We can see courage on his face. He obviously protects his stand and he is ready to fight; he believes in his victory. This card speaks about the need to fight for what we believe in as a integral part of advancing towards our goals. If we truly believe in our standpoint, we will assume strong position no matter who opponents are. How many times you heard from famous people that nobody belived they would succeed? The lesson is to face the fear and take a step to fight for your goals no matter what people say.


Positive: valour, gain, challenges, defiance, courage, perseverance, ultimate success, victory after many battles.

Negative: aggression, indecisivenes, lost opportunities, lack of courage, hesistancy, anxiety.

   A young man on a craggy eminence brandishing a staff; six other staves are raised towards him from below. Divinatory Meanings: It is a card of valour, for, on the surface, six are attacking one, who has, however, the vantage position. On the intellectual plane, it signifies discussion, wordy strife; in business--negotiations, war of trade, barter, competition. It is further a card of success, for the combatant is on the top and his enemies may be unable to reach him. Reversed: Perplexity, embarrassments, anxiety. It is also a caution against indecision.
