TODAY'S CARD is The Seven of Wands. This version is from The Fey Tarot.

For comparison, here's The Seven of Wands in the Rider/ Waite/ Smith deck:

THE SEVEN OF WANDS: The Faery (Fairy) World came up in a major way on one of the threads during the International Association for the Study of Dreams PsiberDreaming Conference I was attending that just ended yesterday. Fairies also showed up in many of our dreams during the conference, as they have over the years in my own. Therefore I thought it was time to post a card from a very distinctive deck, The Fey Tarot (top card above). I don't have this deck yet in my collection so I've not seen all the cards, but those I've viewed online are really impressive. They carry that mix of whimsy, mystery and pointed purpose I sense from the Faery realm.

DIFFERENT OR LESS COMMON, EVEN QUIRKY MEANINGS FOR THE SEVEN OF WANDS (i.e. the below is not intended to be an exhaustive exploration of this card; a quick google will produce a wider variety of takes should you not be familiar with this card):

It's time to stop being defensive and let the waters of deep emotion be felt. Conversely: Fighting off what you don't want to feel; it may not be time to give over to the feelings, i.e. action may be what is crucial at the moment.

A situation in which you will need to teach and/or lead.

A "spit-fire" personality.

You may feel overwhelmed, but something is about to happen that will change your perspective on the entire situation and especially your position in it.

Not willing to compromise your values.

Take to the high ground (aggression from others is possible concerning this issue).

Take the high road (don't give in to a pull toward aggresion on your own part).

What aspects of yourself do you consistently "fight down"? Check out their flip-sides or implications, they may be precisely what you need right now.

Challenging yourself and/or others.

A non-traditional approach to life, that can on occasion make you feel embattled because others require explanations or make defense necessary.

Truly hear others, and hold firm in what your heart and spirit know to be important.
