The Seven Of Wands Tarot Card Meaning

The Seven of Wands is depicted by a young man who appears to be standing on a precipice fighting for his land.

There are six enemies attacking below. If you have received this card in your reading, this symbolizes success against opposition and a certain victory through courage. Right now you are gifted with added perspective that your opposition does not have. You can see farther and wider so you can prepare for a potential attack if need be. This is an excellent card to see you through challenges so that you can come out the winner.

The important thing to do now is to make your point of view, or position clear and then stand by what you feel is the most important right now and do not compromise or try to settle for less. You are under a certain amount of pressure, but you have more flexibility than those that are putting that pressure on you, in this you have the upper hand. In time you will be able to understand the situation more clearly because the Seven of Wands is a card of inner strength and force of will. You are capable of pushing through any adversity.

One of the aspects of receiving this card is the notion that at this time you will need assistance from others. One of the great things about not living alone on an island is that we are able to bounce thoughts and ideas off of one another to better our life experiences. To learn, to grow, to be strong; to find what makes us happy and what does not and to learn to cast away more of what does not. With the assistance of others you will meet the obstacles that you are running into head on and push past them. You must not try to fight this alone, even though you are capable. There is something you need to learn from asking for help right now. You are a natural born leader in this instance, however, so others will look to you for instruction. In this they will help you and you will help them.

As it stands, because of your intense bravery and willingness to fight for what you believe in, you are already enlightened enough to understand that the environment and everything in it is all a part of one life spirit. This means that your ‘enemies’ so to speak, have as much of a relationship with you as your brothers and sisters. Together we are operating in the same sphere at the same time in order to progress at our varying levels. Understanding this concept will bring you more strength. Meditate on this.

Your belief systems may be put to the test now, because you have something to lose, but continue to have confidence in yourself and in those that you trust and you will have success in your endeavors. By confronting this challenge head on, you will be correcting any flaws that might exist in your beliefs to become more ironclad. The Seven of Wands is the almighty defender, ready to fight regardless of odds. This is what you are experiencing in your life. These are the odds that you must match. You can only fight for what you fiercely believe in. Consider who you feel you are fighting against at this point in time, are you treating yourself with trust and honesty? What about others? Do you trust others to be strong enough to help you? Examine these questions and see where that puts you in your current circumstance.

The Seven of Wands in Love

The Seven of Wands shows up in a reading to help you through some painstaking struggles that you are having to experience at this point in time. Basically, this man is fighting for survival, to protect himself and to protect the ones that he loves. And he does that at all costs. This is the same for you and your love life. Now you are fighting to save something that you believe in. If you are in a relationship, this shows a potential for a struggle to keep the authenticity and morale of the relationship which can at times be exhausting and challenging. This is a good time to ask for help in the form of relationship/marriage counseling. See if there is anything that you can do to help make the relationship work. The work itself is what the Seven of Wands is here to help you with.

If you are single, then take into consideration what about your personal life you are treating as a struggle. Why is it hard for you to meet people? What blocks are you experiencing? Who is metaphorically, or literally, stopping you? You must remove these road blocks with the help of your friends in order to move forward in love.

The Seven of Wands in Health

When the Seven of Wands appears in relation to your health, it is of key importance that you slow down. Right now you have a large amount of mental struggles that are causing you pain. You are thinking too much and that is making it hard for you to accomplish what you need. Your body may suffer from physical aches and pains due to the fact that you are holding on so tightly to the frustrations of your experience. You must let this go so that you can find healing.

The Seven of Wands in Work and Wealth

The Seven of Wands in Work and Wealth speaks strongly to a new wave of competition in your business and trade life. These are challenges that you can definitely meet, but you want to make sure that you ally your forces with someone who understands where you are coming from. For example, if you have an idea about how to create a business, you will want to get a lawyer friend involved to make sure that you do everything right. The more friends like this that you have helping you, the better.

The Seven Of Wands As Feelings

This card in love readings as feelings means that they are unwilling to give up freedoms and begin a relationship. This card can indicate giving up their ground and moving towards being emotionally defensive and focusing on their mind. The person is determined in the choice that they have made and nothing will change their mind. For feelings, this can indicate they are in a corner and they cannot get out of it. The more they push the person the more they will back off and might end up falling off a cliff and never to be seen again.

Because of the fact that you are a natural-born leader and the Seven of Wands is encouraging that side of you to thrive, there are going to be points when others are intimidated by your leadership skills and will desire to challenge or fight with you. You will have to put up with some jealousy which will be inconvenient for you. But again the importance here is to tap into your intuition to make the right decisions on how to handle these situations while still keeping your character intact.
