Seven of Wands
The Seven of Wands shows how sometimes you can only discover what is important to you when you are forced to defend it. You can meet with stiff opposition but that in no reason to give up. The energy of the Seven of Wands is helping you to discover the importance of sincerity in what you are doing. You may be embarking into unknown territory with only vision where commitment will be the deciding factor in your success. When a seed is planted in the earth, it is driven to push beyond the dirt and rocks to reach the sun. The rocks or obstacles actually peel away its protective covering and allow it to establish strong roots. Sometimes it is only through adversity that you are able to discover just how powerful and committed you are to the object of your desire. Meet this period of testing with the faith that you will succeed because failure is not an option. You may not feel supported but what you are attempting to accomplish will be lasting specifically because you feel passionately driven to achieve it.
