Eight of Wands

Eight of Wands

A Pixie is seen directing eight wands towards something. This card is all about positive momentum. Maybe you've made a firm decision and are more than ready to go through with it. If so, the Eight of Wands is saying go for it!
Alternatively, instead of sending the wands forward, perhaps the wands will be landing around you soon. Something of major impact is coming. It could be something physical, something emotional, or something in the background of your life that you may not even realize until later. Whatever it is, know that it will help you grow and progress forward is a positive way.

It can be hard to get a momentum going, try not to beat yourself up. It's possible that there are some obstacles in your path that you need to deal with first before trying again. The Eight of Wands suggests that you practice patience at this time. Deal with whatever is causing you to feel stuck first, then move on to what you've set your sights on.

Upright: If you've felt like your love life has been going no-where, the Eight of Wands is here to tell you that you're going to see movement very soon! A new opportunity is going to present itself, allowing you to progress in love.
If you are currently with someone new, things with them could start moving rather quickly - but in a good way. Or if you've been with someone for a long time, this card is here to let you know that some excitement is heading your way!

Reversed: You may be feeling a bit stuck and/or confused right now. Misunderstandings are playing a role. Be sure to think carefully before saying or doing anything right now. Remember that trying to force anything to happen may end up pushing others away. Practice patience right now and ask questions rather than make assumptions.

Upright: Things seem to be progressing rather quickly at work! There is a lot of momentum and things seem to be going really well. Your career may be growing rapidly, causing a lot of positive shifts and changes for you!

Reversed: This card can indicate that you may not be moving fast enough in your job, or perhaps things just seem quite slow. It might feel like things just are not moving at all. This can be rather frustrating and quite disappointing. Try to practice patience at this time and think about what small steps you can take to try and get yourself unstuck. It might feel overwhelming, but the Eight of Wands encourages you to keep moving forward. It may take a bit of time, but you can do this.
