Reversed Cards: One of the interesting features about the Eight of Wands card is that it is often depicted without any people in it, which seems to make it somewhat ambiguous. Regardless of its orientation, how can you tell if the flying wands are friendly fire or an enemy attack? This is why in the shadow aspect the Eight of Wands might put you on the defensive. Rather than seeing this card as a sign to forge ahead unobstructed, you may instead feel like you are under fire. If this card has shown up in your reading or daily draw, check in and see how it makes you feel, because there is a good chance this may tap into your fight-or-flight response.
