Created by Theresa Reed, The Tarot Lady

Welcome to Tarot Bytes – the tarot podcast for people who want to learn tarot…but don’t have all day. Short, bite-sized tarot lessons.

Episode 50: Seven of Wands

The Seven of Wands is tarot’s street fighting man. Take one look at the card and you’ll see that this guy isn’t backing down, no matter how great the opposition. In this little lesson, we’ll look at the symbols and some possible interpretations for this feisty card. Books mentioned: 78 Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack, Modern Tarot by Michelle Tea, and Secrets of the Waite Smite Tarot by Markus Katz and Tali Goodwin.

Secrets of the Waite Smith Tarot has an especially interesting historical context for the Seven of Wands: Pamela Colman Smith used her theatrical background as reference for this deck. In this case, the Seven of Wands represents Petruchio from Shakespeare’s play, The Taming of the Shrew.” Ready to learn more about this card?
