Today’s card is the Seven of Wands, also known as Rods or Staves. This card generally shows a person who is nearly always successful in working his or her will in the world. This is a person who is truly gifted, standing head and shoulders above the rest, a person who sets standards and examples that exceed previous conceptions of what is possible. In historical Tarot, this person would most likely be portrayed as an admired and feared warrior who has vanquished his adversaries against all odds. Such an outstanding feat could just as easily apply to the world of the media, politics or business.
This card tells us to beware the conceitedness that can be hinted at by this card. Being successful does not make you invincible, and it does not protect you against errors! Enjoy your “fifteen minutes of fame” and then get back to your tasks, or your head will swell, to the detriment of your ability to succeed again.
Rouse your ambition and the competitive aspects of your nature to push beyond limits. Launch yourself. The Seven of Wands tells you that NOW is the time for peak performance. Even if slightly unprepared, you may want to push yourself beyond your usual limits, thinking in larger terms and tweaking your competitive nature. Time and effort spent in preparation could pay off handsomely. You might be the one who vaults right over the heads of those who thought they could outdo you. Move beyond rhetoric and verbal challenges. Now could be the moment to prove what puts you head and shoulders above the rest by demonstrating it in action.
May today be the day to switch into high gear, taking no prisoners on your way to the top!
