“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.”
~ Abraham Lincoln
The 7 of Wands is fiery Mars in fiery Leo. In a fight, this is the energy that well and truly pulls no punches. This card gives us a message that we need to stand firm and fight for what we know is right.
Typically, this card shows up when people are ganging up on us. For instance, you could have decided to go down ‘the path less traveled by’ and now face a chorus of objections, often belonging to friends and family.
Turn up the volume to ‘I did it my way’ and proceed dear Earth Angel. You have permission from the ‘higher-ups’ when this card shows up.
The 7 of Wands could also show up to ready you for a fight to protect the interests of someone vulnerable. In that case, it won’t be so much about signing a petition (although that is great too) but starting the campaign and getting others to sign. This is a card of leadership and yes… aggression. Just make sure to channel it the right way – act assertively rather than with rage.
Affirmation: “I have the courage to speak up for the underdog and for myself.”
