Four Of Wands General Meaning

There is much to look forward to with the Four of Wands as it symbolizes collective achievement and community. In the image, each wand stands perfectly upright and without opposition.

Two people can be seen waving bouquets, as if greeting whoever is about to enter the makeshift gate. On the wands, you can see a bundle of flowers, further showing the symbol of celebration and triumph.

Further still on the background, there seems to be a castle, which was the abode of medieval soldiers during ancient times, hinting the feeling of finally being at home after a long war. All of this detail is covered beautifully in the colourful glow of yellow, showing the brilliance of the moment being portrayed in the card.

Just below the castle walls, three more people can be seen gathering towards the middle, waiting patiently for their triumphant sovereign. The meaning of this on your end could not be more delightful.

The person being celebrated isn’t shown in the image, so it could be you and your friends. As it stands, you have most likely done something great for the community and have had plenty of people help you in the process.

Reward yourself for this most glorious victory and congratulate yourself for a job well done!

Four Of Wands Upright Meaning

This is a triumphal moment for you. You’ve thought things through, you’ve fought your battles hard, and you’re now at your greatest element yet.

People may be cheering you on, and you may even hear your tarot reader congratulate you! However, you should never lose sight of your principles and virtues as a human being. Often, the greatest of falls comes from a false sense of security and pride.

The Four of Wands in the upright position does tell you to feel happy about yourself, sure, but always remember to plant your feet firmly on the ground with humility.


Love Meaning - Four Of Wands Upright

With the telltale arch, we may be looking at a really wonderful moment coming to grace your relationship. Perhaps your partner is thinking about proposing to you and you just don’t know it yet, or a great personal victory like a promotion will help you get a raise and fast track your existing plans for the family.

Whatever it is, welcome these changes with gratefulness and anticipation. While indeed, there will always be some uncertainties in life, these developments would help you and your loved ones forge even stronger connections and grow together in love.

After all, there is nothing more beautiful than going forward together with the people close to your heart. As with all personal triumphs, share this moment with the people whom you value.

It is through their love and support that you were able to achieve what you have right now, and it's only proper that you keep them in mind as you forge on with your journey. At any rate, you have every opportunity and right to celebrate soon enough, and you’re going to want to share the positive energy with your friends and family, so you can altogether celebrate true love at its very best! And if this victory of yours is still yet to come, cheer up! Sooner or later, you will have your chance to shine, and this will take you and your loved ones to greater heights.

It will come when you least expect it, so don't miss out on what's yet to come!


Wealth Meaning - Four Of Wands Upright

Heralding future triumphs is the hallmark of the Four of Wands in its upright position. Specifically, in the context of personal wealth, it means you are going to earn money in a spectacular way.

There is no telling on the possibilities that may open for you, but one thing is for sure: they promise the great wealth and fulfillment that you have always been looking for. To be sure, your bank accounts will be stacked, and there are still many opportunities to come! If you’re the head of a business, this means that you will be securing a deal that will cause your employees to cheer for you and your company.

If you’re an employee, this means you’ll be helping your team in such a huge way that you’ll be getting proper recognition. This card means you will succeed with fanfare! After all, there is much to celebrate.

Those who know you well were aware and understand how much premium you place on your job. The recognition of your work is only proper, and along with it the rewards you give yourself.

Go on, take a break. You deserve it! As with all victories, though,  you might consider taking on additional responsibilities as you go along.

Perhaps it is high time you also venture to invest in the stock market or real estate with all your financial gains.  This is no time to rest on your laurels; there is still more left to do!

Four Of Wands Reverse Meaning

With the reversal of this card comes a potential reversal of one’s fortunes. The triumphal arch is disfigured in the reverse, indicating bad luck or a potential fall which may require you to absolutely look things through.

If you’re at the peak of your career, it’s time to ask yourself the hard questions. What could be the traits that could bring about one’s downfall, and how do you stop yourself from becoming another Icarus? Try to step back from your world and recall the things that got you to where you are now, and exercise great caution.


Love Meaning - Four Of Wands Reversed

For the reverse position, you’re going to want to stay lowkey for a bit, especially if the two of you are constantly bragging to others about the state of your relationship. The problem with being too confident about your state of affairs is that it unnecessarily creates an expectation for you and your partner-- that you have to constantly please a crowd in order to validate your relationship.

There is nothing wrong with flexing your significant other. It is a mark of your devotion to them, along with your gratefulness and commitment to your relationship.

Unfortunately, giving the public an almost unfiltered view of you and your partner can cause external pressure. Many outsiders would then consider it their business to meddle in at the slightest inconvenience.

For example, your partner might Tweet something relatively harmless like: “He showed up late for our date!” Or “Man, she’s annoyed at me. :(“ Of course, since you’ve already allowed people a semblance of access to your relationship, they would undoubtedly have something to say.

The commentaries can range from funny to potentially harmful. It isn’t too far off to say that their influence can cause irreparable conflicts in your relationship.

Thus, it would be best if you and your partner would keep things between the two of you. Sure, post a picture or two, but maintain your peace and solitude.

Love isn’t always about sharing things, but also enjoying each other in intimate silence, without anyone looking. Take advantage of the privacy to make the relationship even stronger.


Wealth Meaning - Four Of Wands Reversed

As of the moment, you are in the midst of a calm before a raging storm. You’re probably relaxing right this second, thinking that everything is in order, but do not let your guard down.

Later in your life, you will encounter new difficulties that will once again test your mettle as a worker and as a person-- and the challenges will not be ordinary: it can mean betrayals, infighting, and general disharmony with your fellows. Careful mental and emotional preparation is necessary if you wish to prevail in the coming months and keep everything nice and steady.

With all these incoming disruptions, it is best if you start by making sure that your relationships with your co-workers are healthy and that you communicate openly with them. Ensure that all parties will not have any reason to create significant conflicts with one another.

It is also recommended that you set aside some funds. While petty office conflict may not seem like enough reason for your income to go down, it can undoubtedly affect business performance.

As a result, you might encounter a few financial troubles here and there if you do not come to the battle prepared. Last but not least, you need to prepare yourself.

As said earlier, you have to prep yourself mentally and emotionally to keep yourself from burnout and fatigue over the coming challenges. You cannot perform well under extreme stress, so take caution! These are trying times, and so you need to keep yourself in tiptop shape.

Fight on!

Open up your mind and realize your true identity.

Embark on a life-changing journey the second you encounter your archetype...
