Tarot Card of the Week: Seven of Wands / Skunk

I drew from Animal Totem Tarot for this week. The card I drew was Seven of Wands.

The Seven of Wands depicts a skunk in a garden. It appears that the skunk has been eating from the garden as there are partially eaten leaves and vegetables around. Some have been dug out of the ground.  There are seven wands pointing straight at the skunk, but the skunk seems unafraid, holding ground. The tail is pointed up as if ready to strike, or spray.

The Seven of Wands appears to ask us to reflect on whether we are ready to defend ourselves, our needs, or what we have created. This week you may not be under attack physically, however you may need to counter your limiting beliefs, or defend yourself against those who doubt you.  You may have some doubts yourself, but realize that you have it within you to stand your ground, and you are able to defend yourself.

Message from the Skunk:

“I am not really much of a fighter. Truly, I prefer to be left to my own devices and treat the world around me with as much respect and honor as possible. But sometimes I have to stand up for myself and I am not afraid to do so. It is, however, the very last resort, as I do give a preemptive warning of what is to come if things don’t calm down.”

Have a super week!

Tarot Card of the Week: Seven of Wands

Using the Universal Waite Tarot Deck, the card I drew was the Seven of Wands.

This card depicts a man on top of a hill, he appears to be fighting others at the bottom of the hill, and he is holding a wand in a defensive or ready to fight position. He has been victorious in his battle, but he needs to still fight to keep his position.

This card indicates that you may have it within yourself to be victorious in battles you may encounter this week. Even if the fight is difficult, you may find that you can come out on top by relying upon your inner strength and knowledge. And, you are in an advantageous position.

On the Seven of Wands card, there is a stream of water running beneath the man, which could symbolize your intuition that you also can utilize to overcome the obstacles you may have to face. Challenges may still come at you, but they may not surprise you, meaning you probably already know who/what your battles are. Knowing this means you can be prepared.

Have a great week!
