Today’s Card: Four of Wands
The 4 of Wands depicts two figures in a celebration of sorts. One figure has her hands raised as if she’s dancing while the other one is holding a tambourine. In the background, there’s a tent with four wands as posts and a banner of flags hanging up.
Minor Arcana – Wands:
The suit of Wands is associated with the element of Fire and represents passion and energy.
In general, the 4 of Wands represents celebration, homecoming, and excitement.
The figures in the card are joyful – they are dancing and playing music with big smiles on their faces. It’s clear that they’re having a good time. The decorated tent in the background also suggests some sort of social gathering or milestone event that’s being celebrated. Often, this card represents a wedding or baptism – something that brings people together.
When this card comes up, there might be something major happening in your own life – an engagement, a pregnancy, marriage – but it can also suggest that you’ll be celebrating these events for others.
This card also symbolizes homecoming – going back to your roots, socializing, or relaxing and being able to let loose. The idea of spending time with family and loved ones is very prevalent in the 4 of wands.
They say that in Tarot, there are no “good” or “bad” cards – each card is meant to teach you something. But, of course, some cards have a more positive outlook than others. The 4 of Wands is generally regarded as an extremely positive card. It’s indicative of love, joy, and celebration.
Typically, this card suggests that you are able to bask in the warm glow of love and social affection, but it can be viewed at as an indication that you’re spending too much time worrying about what other people think of you.
It can also be telling you not to overindulge – don’t forget your responsibilities during this time or let yourself become too relaxed and indulgent. It might also be a warning not to get too caught up in social drama.
Guidance for your Love Life
As I stated earlier, the 4 of Wands is generally viewed as an extremely positive card – it can suggest an upcoming celebratory event. In a love reading, this might be indicative of a wedding, an engagement, or a pregnancy announcement coming your way!
It can also suggest that you and your partner are going to be spending a lot of time socializing with others – or even that you’ll be meeting the family soon. It tends to indicate a lot of love and warmth between romantic partners – you have a lot to celebrate just in your relationship.
If you’re single, this card could mean that right now isn’t the time for you to be focused on finding a relationship. Right now, spend time with family and friends. You’ll find someone soon enough, but this card might be telling you to slow down and not rush the process. Enjoy being single and having your freedom.
Regardless of your relationship status, usually this card can be seen as an indication that you’re well-loved and in pursuit of celebration.
