7 of Wands Angelic Tarot Card Meanings

The 7 of Wands corresponds with 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.

7 of Wands from the Frideborg Tarot

“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

Typically, the 7 of Wands shows up when people are ganging up on us or when someone challenges something we wish to do. For instance, you could have decided to go down ‘the path less travelled’ and now face a chorus of objections, often belonging to friends and family. For it is often those that know us best who believe they are doing us a favour when they try to keep us within the bounds of what is familiar.

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 myself and those in need of my help.”

The 7 of Wands in Love and Relationships

You need to find a way of expressing yourself creatively and to not use the relationship or your partner as a ‘crutch.’ You may be involved in tough competition at work and that could be taking energy and attention away from the relationship. Coping with the demands of a lover may be too much right now. However, this card could also show up to signify that you and your special someone have really strong chemistry as well.

If ill-dignified or reversed, there are some serious self-confidence issues going on and it’s possible that you look for recognition as ‘Mrs so-and-so’ rather than as an individual in your own right.

Single and looking

How confident are you feeling? This is the ultimate confidence card and it is urging you to take action rather than sit around and wait. That doesn’t mean you have to be the one to ask the other person out but you need to make an effort. With Leo energy, there is an emphasis on your appearance as well. What do you see when you look at yourself in the mirror? Do you take pride in your appearance? When was the last time you visited the hairdressers?


Sexually, this Mars in Leo card is very potent. As stated above, it can indicate strong chemistry between partners. It is a card of pure passion and having lots of energy for lovemaking.
