Eight of Wands

Updated: Feb 19

There are only two minor arcana cards, excluding the Aces, in the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck which do not have humans – Three of Swords and Eight of Wands. These focus on action or circumstances rather than people and individual elements.

Eight of Wands Tarot

Eight of Wands Meaning - General

Eight of Wands' meaning in general is that of heavy action. You can see eight staff flying towards a certain point. They may or may not land where they were aimed. So, this suggests bracing for sudden movement and changes.

Overall, this is a very positive card. And therefore, the changes we spoke of above are generally expected to be positive. Eight of Wands is about some sudden news or communication coming in. There are quick changes happening, excitement and sudden delivery of something.

Eight of Wands in tarot can also indicate hastiness, hurry, speed or rushing. There could be an advice here to think before you act. Although with the speed of action here, you may not get enough time to think. So be conscious of the limited time available to you to act and take advantage of any opportunities that come your way. Quick decisions are needed or else, the opportunity may pass.

Eight of Wands suggests an ideal time to move forward. If you have been contemplating doing something since a while, this is a perfect time. Anything you kickstart now will progress at great speed and momentum. Your hard work and smartness will pay off for sure. Go ahead, and declare yourself openly. It is best to strike while the iron is hot.

Any obstacles you have been facing could be removed with the Eight of Wands. This is the time for laying a clear path for something good and conclusive to happen and your goals to come to fruition. This is culmination of efforts put in so far and successful resolution to events that have seemed forever stuck.

This card also indicates travel and holiday.
