Seven of Wands Tarot Card Meanings
At first glance there’s the feeling of a threatening atmosphere in the image of this card; the man stands in readiness against six other wands that point toward him, but if you look closely you’ll notice that he stands firm and looks calm. The door behind him is slightly ajar but beyond we catch a glimpse of a night landscape, which could represent his inner world, the seat of his ideals and beliefs, which he defends.
The Seven of Wands indicates standing up for yourself or something you believe in that’s important to you. You may feel challenged or need to assert your position regarding a situation or point of principle. It’s time to stand your ground but this card is more about being assertive whilst holding your own, rather than taking an aggressive stance.
Stay calm, remain confident, but be resolute and have the courage of your convictions, because if you can do so you have the ability to win through despite challenges or opposition. You can be successful so long as you stay true to your integrity, but if surrounded by negative cards it may suggest examining your motives or reasons for feeling defensive.
If reversed or ill-dignified, may indicate wavering or being indecisive, alternately it could suggest being fixed and fail to see alternatives, weakening your position.
