Seven of Wands Meaning - General

Seven of Wands is a card of being challenged. Are you feeling like you are under attack? You have no support, and you are battling the world on your own. The others don’t agree with you. They are aggressive, either harassing or bullying you.

Going back, the person in Nine of Swords was also probably harassed or bullied, either by people or situations or his own thoughts. He had sunk into a sea of anguish and stress.

But unlike his friend in the Nine of Swords, Seven of Swords in tarot is not taking it sitting down. He is holding it out aggressively. He is defending his position and his territory.

At times, we face situations where it is us against the rest. We can choose to go with the flow of popular opinion. Or we can hold it out. This is driven by our conviction in our beliefs. Seven of Wands indicates a high level of conviction, high enough to hold our own despite challenges.

Maybe you are being asked to engage in something that is outside of your moral or ethical boundaries. You can see that the person in Seven of Wands is up on a plane or a mountain. And his challengers are at a level below him. This signifies taking the high road. One needs to maintain a strong will and courage to be able to stick to one’s principles.

Not only courage, but to ward off so many people and stick to one’s conviction also needs a lot of stamina. Seven of Wands speaks of courage and dipping into one’s stamina to be able to pass this phase of high resistance.

Remember that the person in Seven of Wands is not defensive. He is definitely defending his thoughts, positions, actions, turf, but he is aggressive about it. He will put himself out there and do what it takes to protect what is his. Even if it means striking first.

On the negative, Seven of Wands can also mean someone who is being unreasonably territorial. You are hellbent on defying others and have put yourself on a pedestal.
