The Eight of Wands

Card Meaning: Swiftness, dexterity, and force of mind yielding immediate action. A brilliant flash of “eureka!” followed by a flurry of movement. However, with extreme speed comes instability. Proper aim is needed to achieve success, else the project might “hit a wall” and be destroyed by its own inertia.

Qabalistic/Astrological Significance: The influence of Hod and Mercury upon the first decan of Sagittarius. Mercurial wit, alacrity, haste, and possibly impatience applied to warmth and positive energy.

Three of Wands

Card Meaning: Virtue, integrity, success, and gloating to a certain extent. A joyous aftermath. The appreciation of one’s own prowess, generosity, and/or nobility after a struggle is successfully overcome. A good deed done with a touch of vanity and flair thrown into the mix.

Qabalistic/Astrological Significance: The influence of Binah and the Sun upon the second decan of Aries. Understanding, stability, and warm self-expression applied to a confident and fiery nature.

Two of Wands

Card Meaning: Dominion, strength, boundless energy, boldness, ferocity. Previously difficult obstacles suddenly reveal themselves to be little more than minor annoyances. Acting with confidence, ease, and power.

Qabalistic/Astrological Significance: The influence of Chokmah and Mars upon the first decan of Aries. Wisdom applied to the seeds of prowess and inspiration, which burst open with potential energy. A current of power, ready to be focused and aimed, that can create as well as destroy.
