7 of Wands: Having the Upper Hand

The Wands are the suit of creation, spirit and enthusiasm. It corresponds to the element of ‘Fire’. The 7 of Wands is way past the midpoint in the act of doing/creating something, but not finished yet.

This is the stage in the game, when we get most weary, and when we get weary, we get defensive and probably over protective of what we have built up so far. We have so much to lose and we have invested so much. We must see the job to the end.

When this card comes up for us in a reading, we may feel that we are ‘up against it’. We have to be brave and carry on with our mission. This card tells us to be brave and ‘not to give in’ to outside forces that oppose us. You have the upper hand – use it!
