Eight wands are sprawled out in a circle like spokes on a wheel engaged in a sacred dance. A rainbow bolt strikes down from above, merging with the top wand. This dramatic, concentrated rainbow is the only surge of color on the card.

The rainbow hues seems to imbue the wand with a quickening, an energy, a message. It is reminiscent of the bolt of color entering the Hierophant’s key. Both of these cards seem to show a concentrated, otherworldly knowledge.

The Eight of Wands makes me think about the concept of synchronicity. This is a term coined by Carl Jung to describe coinciding events which we interpret as meaningful but are not causally related. As these eight wands moved in their pivotal dance, the rainbow energy just so happened to descend and merge itself with this particular wand at this particular time. These two events could be entirely unrelated, but we perceive them as ripe with significance.

The Eight of Wands often suggests incoming messages, a quick arrival of news, or sudden action. This card can show a ‘Eureka!’ moment, where we have a sudden burst of energy to take the next step. This card reminds us that change is constant, but we can always choose to take our own action and find purpose in the seemingly random events of our lives.
