Seven of Wands

Additional deck interpretation:

The Seven of Wands points you towards a path of overcoming stiff competition in order to realize a cherished dream as you continue your journey through the seventy-eight passageways of growth.

This is the level on your continuous cycle of change where you might engage in a nasty battle that you absolutely must win. You may be attacked and ganged up on, but you will have the courage to fight on. You will not compromise your integrity and go down in flames!

Sometimes you need to stand up to someone and show your mettle, be firm and preserve your personal integrity. In the end, you will maintain your position and will once again be respected, be the one who clearly deserves to be "The King of the Mountain" because you have earned it!

Then again, you may have taken on too many projects and bitten off more than you can chew. If this is the case, you need to review your options and make the right adjustments. Maybe you are not managing your time wisely and your work load is piling up on you, or maybe you need to make some changes to manage the demands made on you to make things easier.

This is not the time to give up. It's the time to sort out the massive pile of work you need to complete and make a list of what needs to get done right away and what can be done later. You need to get busy and start clearing the deck before you take on anything else. Do not lose track of what you need to do and how long it's going to take. You also need to have realistic completion times!
