Yesterday was the last day of January 2017. I started my personal tarot session with an Unlock yourself spread which did not go well. I was very disappointed especially because this was my first reading with my new Clear Quartz Crystal. But I couldn’t make sense of a single card. So I finished my session with a single card draw in my single card draw I drew the 4 of Wands reversed.
The image on the card: In my Giant Rider-Waite deck the 4 of wands has an image of a couple celebrating under four wands standing like pillars draped with flowers. Behind the couple is a looming grey castle wall. The four of each suit is generally accepted to be the ‘teamwork’ card. Combine this with the Wand suit which correlates to the fire sign and to me this card signifies a joint effort in that has resulted in success and harmony. This is one of the most positive cards in the deck and when I look at it I see a time to celebrate. Tarot.com has a wonderful summary of what I see in the images: When you act upon a shared vision you will have far reaching effects. The only problem is I drew this card inversely.
Just as the IV of Wands signifies happiness and stability when drawn upright the inverse can imply the opposite. A time of instability or problems communicating with your significant other. Change is the one word answer to the question of this card inverted.
As it applies to me this makes total sense as Marc has recently gone back on the Mega Yacht full time and I am desperately missing working together with him at the dive shop. We went from spending all day and night together to him being away for weeks at a time. I feel abandoned and can’t wait until we work together again. Though I am still not sure about joining him on the yacht. I should note that I started this post and had a lapse of 20 days before I finished it. I hope this is helpful for anyone looking for a definition for the IV of Wands.
