Advanced tarot interpretation

(Applies to the upright position)

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

A young man wards off six wands with one that he holds in his hand. The wands may or not be attacking him, but he is definitely under the impression that they are and he is going to do everything possible to ensure that they do not conquer him. He is concentrating so hard on fighting the wands that he doesn't notice that his footing isn't that secure.

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

Decisiveness in the face of perceived aggression. Readiness to defend one's position and property. Strength against seemingly overwhelming forces. This is very much a "take up arms and darn the consequences" card - the outcome could go very well or badly depending on the person's handling of the situation. This card may be familiar territory for anyone who has ever fought to get to a certain position in life, and suddenly find themselves set upon by all sides trying to knock them down from that position. The ability to rise above a situation.
