The underlying theme of the Seven of Wands reversed is anxiety. In order to relieve these feelings, you must determine the root of the problem. Once you figure out what is making you anxious, you can take action to correct it. The most important thing to avoid is indecision. If you are uncertain about what you should do, it is wise to evaluate the situation. But do not allow yourself to get trapped waiting for a perfect scenario which will never come.

Unable to Keep Up

When someone asks you to do something, it can be hard to say no. But the Seven of Wands reversed can indicate that you’ve bitten off more than you can chew. You’ve over committed yourself and taken on too many responsibilities. Although you might wish you could accomplish it all, in the end you are left feeling overwhelmed. Take a step back and reevaluate your commitments. Give one or two of these things your full attention and let the rest go. It is better to do one thing and do it exceptionally well than to do many things poorly because your focus is too divided.

Social Struggles

The reversed Seven of Wands may also be referencing a struggle between yourself and those around you. You may be feeling as though you are in a competition with everyone else around you. When you are constantly comparing yourself to others, you are bound to end up feeling inadequate and inferior. It is time to change your focus. Stop worrying about other and focus on building your self esteem. Being confident in yourself is the key to successfully reaching your goals.

On the other hand, your struggles may come from being constantly criticized or judged by others. It may seem as though you can do nothing right in their eyes no matter how hard you try. Once again, the key is to ignore everyone else and turn your attention inward. Do the things that make you happy and are right for you. Don’t worry what anyone else has to say about it.


Maintaining your individuality is important, but the Seven of Wands reversed suggests that you are closing yourself off from making connections with other people. Perhaps it is a fear of being vulnerable. Or you may be making incorrect assumptions about others. Treat people with kindness. When you open yourself up to them, you will benefit from these connections. Remember that every person we encounter has a lesson to teach us.

Giving Up

Your desire to avoid conflict can be represented by the Seven of Wands reversed. Whenever someone opposes you, you immediately retreat in order to keep the peace. But while this may make you feel accepted and well liked in the present, you have to consider whether this is truly the best course of action in the long run. You are backing down too easily on your point of view. There are times it is well worth it to fight for what you believe in. Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.

Conversely, this card can also be a sign that you need to back down. Defending yourself is one thing, but you are taking things too far and have become overly defensive. This drives a wedge between yourself and those around you. Find a happy middle ground where you can be true to yourself and respectful to others.

Moving On

No matter how hard you try, things just don’t seem to be going the way you intended. You have tried your best and done everything you can do, but the progress is slow or non-existent. Some things simply are not worth the struggle. There are times when the right thing to do is to let go and move on. The Seven of Wands reversed may be a sign that this time has come. While it might seem like you are “giving up” right now, better things await your in the future.

A Challenger

Someone has challenged your position and you are unprepared to face the battle. The reversed Seven of Wands represents your lack of confidence and courage. The challenge has left you feeling shaken and vulnerable. Right now it might seem as though the only thing you can do is to give up and let them win. But even though you feel threatened, now is not the time to quit. By giving up, you would only allow yourself to be manipulated and taken advantage of.


The Seven of Wands reversed may be a sign that you or your partner are feeling indecisive about your relationship. Although you might be thinking about moving forward, fear is holding you back from following through on it. Evaluate where this fear is coming from, as it may be something that can be addressed and dealt with. In some cases, it may mean that the timing is just not right.

If you are currently looking for love, stop letting your anxieties hold you back from finding that special someone. You will never find anyone special if things remain the way they are. It’s time for you to get out there and have fun. Embrace the vulnerability as you see where life takes you. Let go of the idea that you have to find the “perfect” person. Everyone has flaws, so if you are expecting perfection, you will always be disappointed.

Money Trouble

When the Seven of Wands appears reversed, it can be a sign of money trouble. Usually it is in reference to a failure to receive some money that you have been expecting. This could be anything from a person not following through on their promise to pay you for something to not receiving your bonus at work. You might need to seek out new opportunities to change your current situation.


The anxiety brought by the reversed Seven of Wands can greatly impact your physical health. While it is always important to rule out other causes, worrying can lead to a wide range of symptoms, such as insomnia, exhaustion, headaches, and more. Remember that your body and mind are connected to one another. When you clear your mind and address the anxiety you’ve been struggling with, your physical symptoms are also likely to improve too.


The Seven of Wands reversed is usually a bad sign in a career reading. You may find that you are in over your head. Maybe you lack the skills and experience necessary to do your job well. Or perhaps you have become worn down from the constant competition. Or maybe you have some enemies at work who are trying to sabotage you by making you look incompetent. You might feel as though you are at your breaking point. Ask someone for help so you don’t have to face this alone.
