The 4 of Wands signify harmony among friends and family, celebration of an achievement or milestone, and stability. Major life events like a wedding, birthday, graduation, baby shower or baptism are all representative of the 4 of Wands. Whenever you and your close friends or family come together in celebration and fellowship perfectly portray the 4 of Wands.

Wands, rods, or staves are one of 4 suits in the Minor Arcana, and correspond with the suit of clubs in a traditional playing card deck. The suit of wands is associated with the element fire of the 4 elements and represent a fiery intensity and inner drive to succeed. There's a strong masculine characteristic to this suit, which means competition and courage are obvious in many Wand tarot readings. A desire to be heard, understood and praised all correspond to the suit of wands in tarot.

4 of Wands Meaning & Description

The 4 of Wands show a vibrant young couple celebrating together in front of a large castle. There are 4 wands extending from the ground in front of them, and a beautiful wreath adorned with blooming flowers and fruit hang between the vertical wands. Standing near the castle are a group of people conversing together, who we assume are friends and family gathered in support for the special occasion.

The comradery, security, support, and celebration reflected in the 4 of Wands is glaringly obvious. Who knows whether a major achievement or just a holiday get together are the reason for gathering. There doesn't necessarily need to be a 'reason' to get together, other than to spend time with those we hold near and dear!

The 4 of Wands Upright represent a peaceful and harmonious family dynamic, celebration among friends, and stability in your relationships. We all hold fond memories of a time being reflected in the 4 of Wands Upright. A Christmas morning opening presents as a child, a Thanksgiving dinner surrounded by extended family, or even an unforgettable night of partying in college are all perfect examples. Consider reaching out to friends or family and creating new memories together just like one's you've had in the past. The holidays are quickly approaching at the time of this writing, so expect to reconnect with the ones you hold most dear.

Another meaning related to the 4 of Wands Upright is achievement and success. You set a goal, and worked diligently toward it's completion. Purchasing a first home, getting married, having a baby, or advancement at work are all deserving of celebration and a pat on the back. This card shows that you have achieved, or are so close to achieving a major milestone you've been working toward. When you reach the finish line it's O.K. to kick back and commemorate this major accomplishment.

Because the 4 of Wands Upright is so closely related to home and harmony, now would be an excellent time to do a little redecorating around the house. Rearrange furniture, put up some new pictures of family and friends, or throw some new paint on the walls. Do whatever turns your 'house' into a 'home', making it more warm and inviting!

I get a strong "Prodigal Son" vibe from the 4 of Wands. I'll explain the beginning of the story during the Reversed meaning, but lets fast forward to the prodigal son coming home. Upon his return home, the young man is dejected and demoralized, fearing the reaction he'll receive from his brother and father. When he reaches the family, he's shocked to see his father welcoming him home with open arms, overjoyed to have his son back. The father throws a huge party in celebration of the wayward son, further symbolizing the reunion and homecoming of the 4 of Wands Upright.

4 of Wands Reversed

4 Of Wands Reversed

The 4 of Wands Reversed certainly isn't as pretty as the Upright meaning. You could be experiencing a disconnect between family and friends when this card appears in a reading. There may be an unresolved conflict between you and your family or friends, which has created turmoil and tension. A strained relationship between those close to you can leave you feeling hollow and be a blow to your self-esteem. Life is too short to harbor resentment or anger toward loved ones. Reflect on the health of your relationship with others, and if there's a way to mend or sort out any previous bad blood.

Returning to the story of the prodigal son and how it relates to the 4 of Wands Reversed, the beginning and potential ending could be a lesson about letting conflict and disharmony continue. At the beginning, the young man in the story approaches his father, and demands his half of the inheritance. Upon receiving his share, he begins a new life of squalor and debauchery. The young man quickly squanders his fortune, until one day he awakes in a pig trough eating with animals. It's at this moment he has an epiphany, swallows his pride, and decides to return home.

What if the father had shunned his wayward son, commanding him to leave and never return? Imagine if he continued to hold onto that resentment and anger inside his heart, choosing to completely disown his own flesh and blood? Obviously the ending of this fictional side of the story isn't as happy and uplifting. Do your part to forgive and forget if you're experiencing a hardship between friends and family. Expect things to get better, rather than focusing on the negative. Where attention goes, energy flows, and we'll only receive more of the same!
