The first time I saw the Seven of Wands in a tarot reading, it confused the crap out of me. Here’s this guy – in a defensive position, ready for a fight. Problem is: he’s on top of a hill and there’s no one actually attacking him. But still, he looks really frustrated.
As there isn’t an actual enemy in sight – I wondered if the six wands in the forefront of the card are actually real or simply a manifestation of his fears. Why is he so ready for an attack?
