8 of Wands as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: Thoughts create things. Think happy thoughts.


Communication in the realm of fire, not air, tells us this is communication of a different kind. I’ve long seen this card as the Law of Attraction in action because things happen swiftly from desires, thoughts and focused intention. Wishing on a star or blowing the seeds of a marigold head communicate your desires to the unseen world around you. Thoughts create things and if you have been putting out to the universe your desire(s) then this card is telling you it is about to come about (or true, if we follow the old way of looking at it.)

Outside of yourself, messages arrive quickly today. Anything that has been delayed may surprise you by arriving early – packages, contracts being signed, pay rises – the list is potentially limitless. The energy of the 8 of Wands is high. The card is often called Swiftness because poof! a thing happened. So be prepared and expect the unexpected.
