Have you pulled the Four of Wands Tarot Card? Well, it’s time to celebrate. 💐
The Four of Wands Tarot Card Meaning
The Four of Wands is a card of arrival. It is the peaceful moment of celebration where we can take a step back with gratitude and witness all that we have accomplished – and really let it soak in.
It often comes after a time of instability or once we have reached a significant milestone that we have been working towards. It’s the stabilising of rapid growth and expansion that allowed us to get to this point. And once we can take a breather and see things from this new perspective high up on the mountain top of our journey – clarity, peace, freedom, abundance, rest, play, harmony, and celebration have the opportunity and space to arrive.
It also invites this celebration to take place with our loved ones, and can reflect loving family gatherings and events, like a wedding, reunion, or holiday!
The Four of Wands Tarot Card in a Love & Relationships Reading:
In a love and relationship tarot reading, the Four of Wands Tarot Card can mean more than one thing, especially depending on it’s position amongst other cards, and if it appears upright or reversed.
The four of wands upright is a positive and welcomed card when we’re looking at relationships and love.
It can reflect a new chapter of a relationship that we have been working towards. It’s the stabilising phase that can only arrive when both involved are committed, have the same intentions, and have already put a lot of the work, energy, and time to arrive in a secure and clear place together.
As it represents celebration, like an engagement, wedding, or another kind of commitment like purchasing a home together or the arrival of children.
When the four of wands appears in reverse in a relationship or love reading, it asks us to take some time and space to get clear on what we truly wish for ourselves, for the path ahead with another person, and if our current relationship or reality reflects this desire.
It can come at a time that feels unstable, when there is a lack of harmony in what each person wants to achieve with the relationship, or when we are going through a period of change or transition like a relationship ending or taking another form.
The Four of Wands Tarot Card in a Career & Finances Reading:
In a career tarot reading, the four of wands upright is all about reward, achievement, and arriving at peace and stability.
It’s the acknowledgment of all the energy, time, effort, and resources we have placed onto our financial or career path and the giant ‘thank you’ from the Universe in the form of blessings.
Perhaps it’s a promotion, the launching of a new business, being recognised for your work in a big way, or a financial reward that allows for freedom and abundance.
It can also indicate arriving at stability, where all the instability of making this moment happen can now ground and support us enough for us to feel safe, at peace, and secure financially.
In reverse, the four of wands in a career or money reading reflects instability, a lack of harmony, delays, changes, or even the invitation to reconsider the path ahead.
It can come at a time where we are not feeling seen, where our efforts feel as if they are going unnoticed and there is an imbalance in giving and receiving, whether this be in the workplace, your own business, or your bank account. Like the love and relationships reading, this card arrives in a career and money reading to invite us to reflect on what we wish to achieve and build – and what needs to change in order to get there.
The Four of Wands Tarot Card when you’re facing a challenge:
Upright, the Four of Wands Tarot Card can be supportive when facing a challenge as it invites us to observe the smaller milestones of what is working, to celebrate where we have arrived up until this point and every step it took to get here.
Stepping back and coming from this perspective could be exactly where and how the next point of guidance can be found. It can reflect the growth that we have achieved, and how capable we are of continuing through the challenge ahead It’s a reminder that we are more than capable of facing this challenge.
It can also indicate that there is something to celebrate, or an achievement reached once we do arrive on the other side of this challenge!
A reversed Four of Wands Tarot Card mirrors a feeling of inner lack, of not feeling as if we can face whatever we are facing, or not feeling as if we have the strength to get through to the other side. It can reflect a sense of helplessness, as if the challenge is much bigger than ourselves.
While this reflection may not be welcomed or feel good to receive, the intention is for awareness so that we may pick ourselves up out of this rut and shift our perspective.
Where the reversed card shows up, it means the potential for the upright is available.
If you are feeling helpless, tune into the upright four of wands and invite inner strength, celebration, and take some time to acknowledge how far you have come and how much you have grown.
