Meaning of Seven of Wands from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Upright

It is a card of valour, for, on the surface, six are attacking one, who has, however, the vantage position. On the intellectual plane, it signifies discussion, wordy strife; in business--negotiations, war of trade, barter, competition. It is further a card of success, for the combatant is on the top and his enemies may be unable to reach him.

Reversed

Perplexity, embarrassments, anxiety. It is also a caution against indecision.
