Four of Wands – planning a wedding or productive work collaboration
In the traditional Rider Waite Deck, the Four of Wands shows a jubilant couple about to pass under a flowering arbour formed by four staffs placed in the ground. In the Merry Day Deck, the couple dance before a garlanded banqueting table, and the card is labelled “Celebration.”
Fours stand for stability: a positive, solid foundation on which you can build a great future. The suit of Wands has to do with passion and energy. In both decks the cards seem to show a marriage celebration – symbolising passion, energy, and a couple about to embark on a future together. In the Jewish religion, marriages take place under a canopy exactly like the one shown in the Rider Waite deck.
Fours also can mean that comfort, safety, and consistency are on the horizon. The Four of Wands, then, heralds the solid bonds of a fruitful and secure relationship that will last through the years.
Even if the partnership is not a romantic one, this card shows that the pairing involves harmony and productive work together, for this is sometimes called the “Teamwork” card. Two or more people have been brought together by fate to build something enduring and beneficial for all involved.
The thing being created might be a family. Or it could be a lasting gift for the community, such as a hospital, a school, or an arts centre. But it may also be something seemingly humble, such as a plumbing company that helps deliver clean, refreshing water and sanitary living conditions to the public.
So keep in mind that, as the saying goes, “There’s no ‘I’ in ‘TEAM.’”
Use your natural charisma and charm to attract one or more like-minded individuals – if you haven’t already! The result is bound to be a happy and productive partnership with a kindred spirit.
