The Four of Wands Tarot Card
Success. Rewards for one’s hard work. A good harvest after a long season of caring for the crops. Celebrations. Fairs. Harvest festivals. Time to relax and enjoy the company of friends and loved ones. And also to give thanks. There may be partnerships in formation, business or personal. Sometimes thought to suggest martimony. A good first step toward a prosperous life. Traditionally, community, reunion, gatherings, relaxation, prosperity.
Not very different from the upright aspect. The foundation for success has been laid, and it is time to celebrate that achievement. But something may be missing. Perhaps the subject does not quite appreciate what they have achieved, or the blessings they have been given. Perhaps they are not quite yet ready for partnership or marriage. Perhaps they are a bit insecure and don’t fully recognize their own abilities. Traditionally, pleasure, advancement, beauty, but the pleasure is hollow and the beauty is tarnished. This card is known as a good omen for recovery from illness and for healthy childbirth.
