Seven of Wands

Visconti-Sforza Tarot (Pierpont-Morgan Bergamo 1451): Seven of Wands

Wands are also referred to as Staves, Staffs, or Batons. They correspond to the playing card suit of Clubs, and many early tarot decks depict this suit as wooden clubs. This suit represents the element Fire, and the social class of Peasantry. Wands are considered a Masculine suit. Wands typically represent creative or entrepreneurial projects, information, travel, and will - whether it be free will, or strength of willpower.

The Sevens typically concern commitment, dreams, striving, courage, will, intelligence, perseverance, strength, long-term success, coping, resistance, and transcendence. Sevens may also represent self-delusion, temptation, and wishful thinking.

Challenge. Competition. Perseverance. Coping. Resistance. Courage. Long-term successes. Strength.

Reversed Meaning: Giving up. Overwhelmed. Overly protective.

Reversed, this card could be interpreted as feeling vulnerable, insecure, tired, and giving up, feeling hopeless and often with feelings of guilt.
