8 of Wands


8 of wands, flight of arrows, arrows of love, this card is all about activation and the inevitable. The flight of arrows signifies a quickening of the pace, and building momentum. An arrow once loosed cannot change it’s course, and the archers, once aimed, must commit. The mark is close at hand, the course is set, it is already being done.

“There is no going back.”

8 of Wands may also be speaking to matters of the heart. The heart’s will is inevitable. And sometimes we simply love who we love, no matter how anyone feels about it. Sometimes we are drawn to people almost against our wills. We may try and fight it but the arrows of love almost always pin their target to the wall.

The problem with so much momentum is that sometimes you knock shit over on your way down. They don’t call it “falling in love” for nothing.

Reversed, the 8 of wands might point to jealousy, dischord, marital problems. Or that the pace was too much, energy too frantic, and while the arrows might have hit their mark, it was the wrong mark to begin with.
