Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - 8 Of Wands Reversed

8 Of Wands Reversed
Introduction: As with the upright 8, the reversed 8 of Wands generally counsels patience. Some things in life cannot be forced or hurried. At the same time, look at how you are using your precious and limited energy. Are you simply waiting, or are you moving forward, as best as you can?

General: You may be feeling guilty about something when you receive the reversed 8 of Wands. Remember that there is nothing that can be changed about the past; the only good thing that guilt can create is a change in future behavior. Sometimes the best thing to do is to forgive yourself. But your conscience is there for a reason. Don't ignore it.

Work: There may be disagreements and arguments at work when this card appears. You and/or the people you work with have put too much effort into things to let relatively petty issues derail major issues. Back off, cool down, and rethink. If you are looking for work, unfortunately there may be a delay in a decision you have been waiting on. Be patient and trust that things will work out the way they should.

Love: In the context of love, when the 8 of Wands reversed appears, you may need to watch out for pangs of jealousy, whether in an existing committed love relationship or in a relationship that you are just hopeful about. Jealousy gets you nowhere and is not proof of love. Be self-posessed and self-sufficient.


Finances: The reversed 8 of Wands, as with the upright meaning, counsels patience and long-term thinking with regard to finances and money. Rome was not built in a day and neither will your long term financial security. Take a deep breath and hang on.

Health: Again, when the 8 of Wands reversed appears in a health question, patience and calmness is necessary. You will not help your health status by being overly anxious or fearful. Send your body loving and healing energy, no matter what the potential problems in your body might be. Don't fear the worst, and don't suffer over health problems which may not ever happen.

Spirituality: The 8 of Wands reversed calls for focus, determination, and cooperation on every level, including your spiritual outlook. It is easy for energy to dissipate now. Ground yourself as best you can and try to make time for meditation, stillness, and contemplation. You cannot do all things at once or be all things to all people. No one can.
