Seven of Wands

When the Seven of Wands is upright in a Tarot reading, you could be involved in a conflict. Some conflicts may be worth fighting, but others are just trouble. You need to check if it is worth fighting, if it will serve your purpose. Only then do you need to defend your position by being bold and aggressive. This card asks you to take a stand, an act that will change the energy flow for better or for worse. Most of the time events carry everyone forward along with the flow. At times, people want to resist and change the course of the flow entirely. When taking a stand, you start an energy of resistance. If you become aggressive, your opponent becomes defiant. But before you take a stand, you must believe in yourself and in your position. Otherwise, let the conflict go. Fight only if it is worth fighting, even if you've already invested time and energy in it. If your cause is just, stand by your convictions as indicated by the Seven of Wands.

When the Seven of Wands is reversed in a Tarot reading, it means turning your back on your own truths and beliefs and convictions. It can also represent making a compromise or being unpopular.
