The Eight of Wands
Upright - Understanding and harmony. The time and conditions are right to facilitate success. A process of speeding-up and an end to delays. A time for 'grasping the nettle', taking the initiative or taking charge. This card also indicates: important journeys, correspondence, and favourable news. A card of hope.
Ill Dignified or Reversed - Disputes and disagreements. Great effort and a driving force that is totally wasted through the running out of steam. Silly, spontaneous actions. Cancelled journeys and possibly redundancy or sacking. Jumping in both feet first before testing the water.
