Seven of Wands Tarot Card: Upright, Reversed, & Love Meanings

Seven of Wands Card Meaning

The Seven of Wands in Tarot stands for defiance, defense, aggression, conviction, and valor. Aggression and defiance are both represented by the Seven of Wands as two sides of the same coin. Some of the cards that reinforce the qualities of the Seven of Wands are the Five of Wands, Nine of Wands, and Five of Swords. Some cards that oppose the Seven of Wands are the High Priestess and Hanged Man (Major Arcana cards) and the Three of Pentacles.

Upright Seven of Wands Card Meaning

When the Seven of Wands is upright in a Tarot reading, you could be involved in a conflict. Some conflicts may be worth fighting, but others are just trouble. You need to check if it is worth fighting, if it will serve your purpose. Only then do you need to defend your position by being bold and aggressive. This card asks you to take a stand, an act that will change the energy flow for better or for worse. Most of the time events carry everyone forward along with the flow. At times, people want to resist and change the course of the flow entirely. When taking a stand, you start an energy of resistance. If you become aggressive, your opponent becomes defiant. But before you take a stand, you must believe in yourself and in your position. Otherwise, let the conflict go. Fight only if it is worth fighting, even if you've already invested time and energy in it. If your cause is just, stand by your convictions as indicated by the Seven of Wands.

Reversed Seven of Wands Card Meaning

When the Seven of Wands is reversed in a Tarot reading, it means turning your back on your own truths and beliefs and convictions. It can also represent making a compromise or being unpopular.

Seven of Wands Card Love Meaning

The Seven of Wands in a love Tarot reading means you might have some problems headed your way. If you're single, it might mean that you're going to have to work very hard to get the person you desire. If you're in a relationship, be prepared to fight for what you want and need.
