Upright Seven of Wands as Love Outcome

If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Seven of Wands, that means that your person is willing to fight for you. Alternatively, they could also feel like they need to defend you and the relationship at all costs. This is especially true if your relationship has faced opposition and judgment from those outside of your relationship. The Seven of Wands card is astrologically associated with Mars in Leo, a very fiery energy. However, this fiery energy isn’t overly aggressive, it is mostly defensive. One interpretation of this card would be that your person feels like they need to protect your relationship from their (or even your) competition. This could be a relationship where many external influences try to interfere.

The Seven of Wands as love outcome is a sign of being standoffish or constantly feeling on guard. If your relationship has no issues with external parties trying to interfere, drawing this card could mean feeling like you need to defend yourselves in the relationship. This is not a healthy dynamic for any relationship, especially if this becomes a chronic, almost daily occurrence. Whatever the source of tension or conflict is, needs to be sorted and healed. We can’t continuously experience our relationships in “battle mode.” It’s unhealthy for ourselves and unfair to our partners. Know when to walk away, if the relationship starts feeling abusive.

If you are wondering about a potential relationship, the Seven of Wands as love outcome means your person is willing to do whatever it takes to make this relationship work. This is great news if you’re anxious about how friends, family, or society in general might oppose your relationship. Your person is willing to defend the relationship. Whether it’s opposition from those around you, or logistical issues like distance, they’ll fight for you. They believe in you and the relationship’s potential, and they believe you’re worth the fight. This person is very optimistic, and sees a bright future with you.

If you are in a new relationship, the Seven of Wands as love outcome means there could be some guardedness. This is perfectly normal for new relationships in development. Neither of you know each other too well, and you both fear judgment or rejection from the other. However, note that sooner or later, both of you will inevitably get to know your true selves. Letting your hair down as soon as possible might save you a lot of grief in the long run. Even better, being open and positive will manifest positivity into your relationship. Your partner will be accepting of the real you. Just be yourself! 

If you are in an existing relationship, the Seven of Wands as love outcome means one or both of you could feel defensive about something. Whether this due to an ongoing disagreement or a sudden Tower moment, it needs to be addressed. Having both of your walls up isn’t helping anyone. This Seven of Wands energy is simply not conducive to the open, honest, vulnerable conversations that need to take place for constructive problem solving to happen. Ask yourself why is it so hard for you to open up or speak up about this issue? Insecurity, fear, or do you logically have no reason to be so guarded?

If you are currently in separation with each other, the Seven of Wands as love outcome means your partner is fighting hard for what they want. If you are separated by distance, and your person wants to be closer to you, they could be prepping all the resources and logistics to make that a reality. They’re not about to give up. Similarly, if you’re inquiring about an ex you’re interested in reconciling with, they won’t give up without a fight. Are they defensive and afraid of getting hurt again? Yes, but they’re willing to give the relationship and you another chance. Hopefully both of you can be gentle with each others’ hearts.
