Eight of Wands — Rider Deck Blue Box Eight of Wands : Description: Eight wands fly through the air. This may, in fact, be the most annoying Tarot card ever drawn. It has caused no small amount of confusion and consternation among teachers and students alike over the years. If the artwork of this card bothers you, you are in the vast majority. Nonetheless, it is generally a good omen. This card has no attachments and the staves are unanchored, and thus stated by all commentaries to be “in flight.” This bequeaths a sense of mutability or impermanence to the energies of these staves.

Prime elements at work in this card

  • Number: Eight. Cycle of completion, time for a change, travel, sudden movement. Even
  • Suit: Wands. Action, adventure, vitality, competition, rebirth, change of location
  • Direction: South-Southwest. Idealism, enthusiasm. Late night
  • Element: Fire. Change, excitement, enthusiasm, optimism, “electric” energy

Traditional meaning: Quick, sudden burst of energy and/or action. Adventure is afoot in the realm and there is no time for rest or sloth. The flight of the staves indicates unified sources of action (unseen causes) leading to change and possible travel. Be ready to change, move, adjust, or fly (literally or even physically) at a moment’s notice. The alignment of the wands in this picture indicates a certain uniformity of action, so expect a reasonably orderly process rather than a chaotic mess. This is generally assumed to be a mildly lucky card.

Traditional reversed meaning: Stagnation or missed opportunities. Not being able or ready to take action when fortune calls. Canceled plans or vacations, inconsistency in action. Reckless action taken without adequate forethought. Alternatively: scattered and wasted energies. If paired with any Sword card (but especially the 7 of Swords), this could indicate an ambush or even a call to retreat.
