Seven of Wands Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawings, the Seven of Wands may come up upright, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic reader conducts their readings, because a Tarot Card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
Merging the qualities of number “Seven” and the qualities of the “Wands Suit,” the Seven of Wands card would represent:
|Being protective of your possession or close ones||Being aggressive and firing the first shot|
|Not being afraid to go after what you want||Applying force to prove your point|
|Being in a defiant position||Refusing to give in or give up|
|Objecting authority, which may lead to legal issues||Standing firm, holding your position|
|Protecting your faith and beliefs|
In a reverse position, the Seven of Wands would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Bending your faith and beliefs||Giving in under pressure|
|Giving up||Compromising, even against yourself|
|Burned-out||Losing your authority|

Seven of Wands – Love and Relationships
If your question would be how someone sees you or feels about you, how the relationship is going, or where will it be in a year, the Seven of Wands is a great card to pull.
If you pull the Seven of Wands upright, it could indicate that you are in a bad place with your partner. They or you are trying to force your beliefs, your work ethic to the other, and neither of you are enjoying it. At some point, one of you will get fed up with the attitude and arrogance of the other. Do not allow such petty inconvenience to ruin the relationship when you can communicate it through.
What not to do?
It would advise you not to face your problems while blaming or imposing yourself on others. Instead, see if you can understand where they come from. In this case, the advice would be to take time to commit to talking out the feelings, emotions, heartaches, or needs of one another. If you are frequently in a fighting – surviving mode, your relationship should be your safe place, not another battle.
The Seven of Wands reversed would bring to the attention that maybe you are walking on eggshells, fearing you’ll upset your partner. You don’t have to accept the other’s dominance or control over you, and if you are not feeling heard, or your feelings are not validated, you need to not settle in a situation that can be or turn abusive and dangerous for you.
Reverse Position (Love and Relationships)
If you pull the Seven of Wands, reversed, it means you or your partner may feel intimidated by the other or may need constant reassurance of love and appreciation. It may also mean that you have been fighting a lot lately, and now it is time to rest and talk to each other with empathy and to resolve whatever has been the issue recently. Remember, it is both of you against the problem, not against each other.
Seven of Wands – Finance, Business and Career
If you pull the Seven of Wands in a business reading, it means you are a leader even in an environment where someone else is the boss. Your words go a long way. This is not necessarily a good thing. You may be imposing your leadership or making it hard for others to work with you. You might not work well on teams and prefer to work alone. No one tells you what to do, because if there’s anything you detest more, it is authority.
If you are working on your own business, it indicates that you are a good businessman, you know what to fight for, and when not to, you know how to cut deals that give more advantages to you, and you surely know how to apply force when needed. These qualities are a must if you want to succeed on your own.
What not to do?
In business, this card would advise not to push your colleagues over the edge by purposely upsetting them or triggering them. It could also mean just to ignore the negative comments sometimes because they’re not worthy of your attention. Also, it indicates you should hold your ground and onto your faith.
You may be compromising too much. You don’t need to compromise your standards or your integrity because you fear otherwise you may lose your job or be ridiculed by your colleagues. Everyone loves someone that knows how to stand for themselves and not bend your ways for just anyone.
Reverse Position (Business and Finance)
The Seven of Wands reversed means you are compromising your standards to please others, or even to make a cut for yourself. It may work for now, but in the long run, you will lose your authority, be viewed as weak, and no one likes someone that bends the way the wind blows. That indicates someone that is not to be trusted or relied upon.
Seven of Wands – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull the Seven of Wands, this would mean that whatever you desire or wonder about will manifest pretty soon. How soon is that? It would be kind of complicated because it would mean springtime, of a Zodiac Sign season Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
It would also be counted in days or months, which would mean one month later, or around the 7th, 16th, 25th of the upcoming month.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming pretty soon. From there, you would figure out the time. For example, if it is summertime when you are doing the reading, it would not indicate that your desire will manifest in spring. The highest possibility is that it would manifest during Leo Season or the upcoming month.
Other times that is much easier than that because you are pulling the number “Seven” it would mean in 7 days, in 7 weeks, or 7 months. In Tarot or any other divination works, it is rare to foretell the future in a year, because the choices we make along the way alter that future a lot.
