Eight of Wands

Eight of Wands

You may find yourself in the midst of a whirlwind of activity today courtesy of the Eight of Wands. This card is all about action, initiative and movement — getting to point B from point A without a lot of dilly-dallying along the way.

The Eight of Wands (Rods in this deck) often also brings news from afar. It could be a letter, a phone call, a friend request or an invitation. It can also refer to someone delivering news (or you delivering news to another).

This version of the card is full of action. As usual with the Eight of Wands there’s a lot going on. We see the legendary Herla’s Hounds — phantom hounds sent to drag the souls of hapless mortals into the underground.

They surge across the countryside, even knocking down one of the 8 posts on their way. The huntsmen soaring above them are also a part of the legend: note the one turning to dust and dissolving into nothingness.

The Eight of Wands refers to swift movement and progress. It’s action, energy and motion. But the imagery in this card must also remind us to be careful and exercise some discipline as there are potential ramifications to pushing too hard or rushing too fast.

As Wands are tied to the Fire element, we automatically associate cards in this suit with expressive, dynamic and creative energy. 

Eights are all “power” cards — for better or worse. In this case it’s usually positive, as it emphasizes the drive and assertion of the Fire vibration and channels it through the confidence and determination of the Eight vibration.

For this reason you should feel like you’re on top of the world today. You should be busy making plans, getting things done, and handling your obligations with the utmost competence and finesse.
