Seven of Wands — Rider Deck Blue Box Seven of WandsDescription: A man stands defensively on the edge of a cliff, staff raised both to ward off attacks as well as to physically intercept them. His back is to the proverbial wall (or cliff) and he knows he has no choice left but to fight (or at least look menacing and determined enough to scare off his pursuers). We see their staves in the foreground, as a group, but so far not one has ascended to face this man personally.

This is the card of active defense. It is fixed in nature, as it is the holding of a position against an imminent onslaught.

Prime elements at work in this card

  • Number: Seven. Signifies challenge to one’s beliefs, defensive preparations. Odd
  • Suit: Wands. Physical action, vitality, competition, determination
  • Direction: Northwest. Courage, fortitude. Afternoon
  • Element: Fire. Aggression, defiance, making a stand, “second wind”

Traditional meaning: “This may hurt a bit . . .” Sun Tzu advocates in The Art of War holding the higher ground in battle if one desires to be victorious. This may take the form of a mental process (being smarter in battle), an emotional one (remaining calm while whipping your opponent into a frenzy), or a physical one (where you can throw rocks down on your enemies). This card indicates attackers ganging up on one who is above, more powerful, or better than they are (verify with other cards to discern which). The defender here has the advantage of the high ground, and the confidence and determination to win. Skill is also implied, foretelling victory after strife.

Traditional reversed meaning: Don’t expect an easy victory. In fact, victory at all may not be possible along the present course. Sometimes it is best to retreat and find more solid ground. Occasionally, this card may indicate weakness or paranoia.
