I’ve written interpretations for every card in the Wild Unknown Tarot. As the box of the deck states, there are no rights or wrongs. These are simply my perspectives on the tarot card meanings. I hope you find them useful!

In the Ace of Wands, we saw the seed of potential. The Two brought a realization of personal power, and the Three showed visions of where this all could take us. The Four of Wands now blends a recognition of how far we’ve come with a renewed conviction in where we want to go from here.
The first two wands cross to form an X, the lower two wands forming the same shape below. The two X’s meet in the middle, forming a small diamond. The crossing wands give the sense of energies meeting, stabilizing and then transforming.
Beyond the wands is a larger diamond, mirroring the shape of the small diamond. The small diamond has a blue center, a color associated with intuitive receptivity. The large diamond is filled with emanating yellow and orange rays, colors that represent planning and action. The entire image suggests the combination of intuition and intelligence.
Beyond the large diamond, black and white lines border the four corners. They are reminiscent of the pattern on the back of the cardstock. This shows a portal which was once mysterious and closed has begun to open and take shape. We’re now in the midst of actively exploring new dimensions.
The four wands almost look to be dancing, the X’s bringing to mind a human figure, arms and legs stretched out with happiness. Just looking out this card makes me want to throw out my own arms and say “yessss! Whooo!” The Four of Wands reminds you to celebrate how far you’ve come without denying how far you have to go.
Amidst the bustling, excited energy, there is that calm, blue center. It is the tranquil core that gives the deeper meaning to achievements. The center is the place within us that knows the actions we’ve taken are part of a sacred journey. We are on our own wild path, and we find joy in the landmarks we encounter along the way.
The Four of Wands shows celebration of what has transpired tinged with an anticipation of the future. We’ve started to move closer to that condensed rainbow energy we saw in the Three of Wands. We’ve passed the threshold – we are on our way! High five yourself for what you’ve already done and then keep on keepin’ on.
