The Four of Wands: Reversed Meanings
- New Relationship
- New Ambitions
The Rider Waite Tarot The Four’s
When things are stable in your life, expect to see some cards with the number four on them in your Tarot reading. This is the number of stability and consistency. There are four suits in the Tarot deck and four seasons on earth. This natural order of things is often disrupted for short bursts, but it is more likely to trend toward constancy than maintain any of the disruptive energy. Revolutions do not occur under the four, but they may be inspired by the long uninterrupted stasis that underscores it. The timeframe starts as a comforting security and consistency, but it can manifest as boredom, stagnation and resistance to change out of a fear of the unknown. For every side of the four that is peaceful and grounded, there is a shadow side of avoidance and outgrown attachments.
The Rider Waite Tarot Suit of Wands
The Suit of Wands is associated with primal energy, spirituality, inspiration, determination, strength, intuition, creativity, ambition and expansion, original thought and the seeds through which life springs forth. Wands deal with the spiritual level of consciousness and mirror what is important to you at the core of your being. Wands are also indicative of all things that you do during the day to keep you busy, be it working at the office, home or the great outdoors. Wands have to do with movement, action and initiatives and the launching of new ideas. They may be indicative of a never-ending Ideas List’ or To Do List’, whereby the client has many projects on the go to keep them busy. The negative aspects of the Suit of Wands include illusion, egotistical behaviour, impulsiveness, a lack of direction or purpose, or feeling meaningless.
The Original Rider Waite Tarot Deck is the most popular and widely used tarot card deck in the world, printed from plates that were destroyed during the bombing of London during World War II. Full of symbolism and deeper meanings, Arthur E. Waite, the intellectual father of the Rider Waite deck, commented that ‘the true Tarot is symbolism; it speaks no other language and offers no other signs.’

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: The upright Four of Wands in the future position was also a welcome sign. The Llewellyn site offered the keywords ‘repose after difficulty’ and added ‘achieving a state of balance, peace, and contentment after a long ordeal.’ The cards suggested I keep plugging away and focusing on quality despite the long ordeal. In the end, the result should be favorable and bring contentment. I hope the cards were right.
Complete Book of Tarot: According to the Golden Dawn, several major arcana are associated with the element Water and the watery suit of Cups. These include:
Portable Magic: At once release your will to be united with the other person. Direct it with your right hand and arm as though casting forth a glowing lance of white fire from your heart centre through the centre of the triangle of golden light that floats upon the air above the raised dais of the three elemental trumps. Feel yourself snatch the fiery lance of your will out of your heart centre and fling it through the centre of the triangle. Visualize the upright astral triangle filling with bright radiance.
