8 OF WANDS OVERVIEW

Light speed! 8 wands hurtle their way through the Universe, gathering the momentum and the energy they need as they go. What started out as 1 quickly became 2, then 3… until all of the wands had joined the flight in quick succession. They’re in a rush because there’s still so much that they need to convey, and so many experiences to bring forth! They draw inspiration from the galaxies and star clusters that they dart past. Star after star, their energies collide and merge, and they move faster and faster until the velocity causes their tips to ignite. They push ahead because they want to arrive before they burn out! { Friction? They blow past it. Hurdles? Barriers? Gone.} They have such great news to deliver, and so much travelling to do. And in the blink of an eye they have passed by, leaving only the change that they came to enact, and their echoed sentiment of Go!

MESSAGE FROM THE 8 OF WANDS

Action! Now is a time for swift movement. It may be in the form of travel, or in the form of energies taking shape. You know those moments in life when change happens so quickly that it’s almost like a wildfire has set everything ablaze? Drawing the 8 of Wands suggests that this type of speedy energy is at play. It’s inspirational. It’s fiery. It’s positive, and it’s now. If you have a gut feeling that needs to be acted upon, listen to it! 

Of course, quick action is easier when you know where you are headed, so that you don’t feel like you are being swept along by an unpredictable tide. It’s time to get clear on goals, desires and direction so that you can harness this beautiful window and get yourself ready to cover a lot of ground! Sometimes these swift wands indicate the movement of creative ideas, or a particular piece of news that is travelling quickly. In shadow, the 8 of Wands can suggest delays. Plans may be cancelled. Dates may be shifted. Your wands may be stalled. And as a result you’ll feel some sticky energy around your situation. You want to move but, ack… if your foot’s not stuck in the mud then you’ve locked your keys in the car, amiright?! Your timing might be off, especially if you find yourself fluctuating between hesitating and missing the moment and running so fast that you’re burning out. It’s time to bring consistent momentum into your propulsion. Small, consistent steps that always feel right in your heart are the best way to start.
