The Symbolism in the "Eight of Wands" Tarot Card:

A flight of wands hurtles speedily towards its destination. Often called the "arrows of love" card, the wands are hurtling through the air, but will soon clatter to the ground. The land that they fly over is fertile, symbolizing the female, and the wands of course symbolize the male.

The Meaning of the "Eight of Wands" Tarot Card:

If the question being asked is a romantic one, the individual will soon connect with the object of their desire. However, they should take care that it isn't a liaison that is taken for granted, as a lot of energy has been expended in making sure that it happens. More broadly, the card can be interpreted as an enterprise that will soon be drawing to an end. There is a lot happening very fast in the life of the person, and it is up to you to control it, rather than letting the arrows "pierce" them. Also swiftness, hope, and movement. Time is of the essence.
