The 7 of Wands Tarot card is all about holding true to your integrity, to what you know is right, and you will win a long sought-after reward. At this point, the fight that has gotten to you has likely been bloody and ugly, and you’ve met some shady characters along the way. But, like this man, you choose the high road, the high ground, and you will win whenever you do. You will have had to defend yourself and your honor in this battle, but it’s about to pay off.
There’s an advantage to the 7 of Wands card that is not seen inherently but is implied by the look of satisfaction on the man’s face. You are about to call checkmate on something, and your opponent has no idea what’s coming. It will be a big reward for you when you stick to that high ground.
In the 7 of Wands Tarot card, we see a man on a hill, his feet in two different directions, and he is putting rods or staves, or wands, into the ground with great perseverance. He has already set six of them in successfully, and you can see the determination on his face and the triumph as well as he begins to place the last and seventh wand. His feet are braced apart as if he is about to make his final move in a game of chess, and metaphorically, he is. And this is the symbolism of this card. This man is about to enter the checkmate stage. And it has been a long and challenging road. He has faced some worthy adversaries, some of which have even been shady. But he has stuck to his integrity and values and fought an honest fight. And he’s about to win. Checkmate.
