The four of wands symbolizes completion and celebration with a renewed recognition of where we want to go from here. We celebrate the fact that our labours have been steady and strong and the resulting harvest will be plentiful. To put it another way – it’s time to party.
Looking at the card, we can see that the wands criss-cross with an indigo centre. Indigo represents the third eye and our place of inner knowing and intuition. This focus reminds us that at the centre of our current completion lies an innate understanding of where we’ve been and where we’re going. The larger background incorporates yellow and orange rays that represent planning and action. The four of wands suggest a combination of intuition and intelligence as we continue to move forward.
The surrounding black lines in the background mirror the pattern on the back of this card and so, this represents the opening of a new portal. We’re essentially actively exploring new dimensions in our lives.
There’s a lot of joy in this card and the wands almost appear to be dancing – as if it were a person stretching out his or her limbs in happiness. We’re being asked to embrace where we’re at and to celebrate how far we’ve come without denying how far there is to go.
Where do you feel like you’ve made great strides in your life? How can you applaud yourself for a job well done and continue plugging away with the momentum you’ve gained? Focus on the part of you that knows the actions you’ve taken are part of a larger journey that may not be entirely clear right now, but is building your future.
Until next week, xo
