The Meaning of the "Four of Wands"
Tarot Card

The Symbolism of the Four of Wands

The Four of Wands card shows us the blissful scene of a happy couple celebrating and dancing together, possibly on their wedding day.

The couple dance under a roof of natural flowers and plants, strung between four vertical wands which stand firmly on the ground.

The four-wand structure is similar to an ancient Hebrew chuppah, mentioned in the Judeo-Christian Book of Psalms and used to perform traditional wedding ceremonies since Biblical times.

The couple dance under a roof of natural flowers and plants, strung between four vertical wands which stand firmly on the ground.

Behind the couple we see others in their party enjoying the wedding festivities.

To the right of the couple is what appears to be a bridge — possibly crossing a moat — leading to an impressive castle in the background.

The Four of Wands has a generally warm feeling to it, depicting a scene of love, family, friendship and the promise of a shared future.

How to Interpret the Four of Wands

The Four of Wands references a time of happiness and warmth, shared with family or friends.

... the card may reference any scenario in which friends, relatives or colleagues are getting together and enjoying one another's company.

While the image on the card itself pictures a formal occasion, the card may reference any scenario in which friends, relatives or colleagues are getting together and enjoying one another's company.

When the Four of Wands appears in a reading, it may reference the time of such an event, or it may signify the importance of such an event, in relation to your question, or in relation to your specific tarot reading.

The Four of Wands may also represent travel to a familiar place, such as a home town, or a former school. Or it may also represent a return to a shared pasttime or activity.

Generally speaking, the Four of Wands is an extremely positive card, as it focuses not only on the act of gathering, but the positive emotions which surround a gathering of friends.

The Four of Wands Inverted

For some reason, get togethers with old friends and family members can turn what should be a time of happiness and reunion into stressful events, filled with conflicting emotions.

Just when we think we're getting ready to re-live the good old days, something reminds us that there was more conflict and tension in the good old days than we remember.

Or perhaps new issues come out of nowhere and turn what should be a fun get together into a mess of conflicting egos and agendas.

... the reversed Four of Wands typically represents a reunion with family, friends or colleagues that goes off the rails somewhere

For whatever the reason, the reversed Four of Wands typically represents a reunion with family, friends or colleagues that goes off the rails somewhere.

When the Four of Wands shows up in a reading in its inverted orientation, it's either referencing some past incident where unexpected emotions flared up — or it's a gentle reminder to be aware of your friend's emotions at an upcoming event.

The way to prevent ruffled feathers is to actively think about the potent alchemy of emotions and character-types that gatherings are. Tread carefully and consciously, and everything will be okay.

NOTE: The Tarot of the Day card is intended to be read in a general sense and is not meant to address any specific questions. You can think of this card as representing a universal or widely-shared event. A daily tarot card is not the same as a card pulled individually as part of a personal reading.

So what is a daily tarot card?

We sometimes get asked "what the point" of the Daily Tarot is. After all, with our ever popular ZodiacTarot tarotscopes which are far more specific to each individual's zodiac sign, what's the less-specific "daily tarot card" for anyway?

The short answer is: We all live in the same universe. Not 12 different universes. iFate has dozens of other oracles, divination systems, horoscopes and tools for expanding personal insight. All of these tools offer unique and specific guidance. The daily tarot card isn't one of them.

The point of the daily tarot card is to unify our experience around just one important facet of foresight. It's not an Aries, Libra or Capricorn "thing". It's a humans thing. From that perspective, the daily tarot should not be taken as 'personal' guidance per se -- but as a blunt tool for understanding (or predicting) something more general.

A daily tarot card might represent:

  • A more general trend.
  • A large event.
  • An important announcement.
  • The significance of some high profile person.

What to look for in a daily tarot card

We would never suggest a 'right way' or a 'wrong way' to interpret the daily tarot card, but we do pay attention to what the cards are telling us:

When minor arcana cards appear in the daily tarot, we look for the message in more mundane, ordinary things. When major arcana cards appear in the daily tarot, they tend to speak to large, "macro" forces at work in our lives or on the world stage.

Likewise, when court cards (Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings) appear in the daily tarot, we look for the significance of a corresponding person in our day.

Needless to say, the Tarot of the Day doesn't replace more direct, user-specific readings. But since we've been pulling daily tarot cards on iFate.com since late 2007, we've always felt they add a framework for every day -- a theme which more often than not becomes apparent as our day progresses. We hope you agree.
