Self-Care with Seven of Wands

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Seven of Wands.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-w07-01If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean that you either need to set boundaries or assess your current ones.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is that as you assess your boundaries and determine what needs to be put in place, that this isn’t about controlling the behavior of others but rather deciding ahead of time how you are going to respond to the behavior of others or to situations.

What are you going to do when you feel uncomfortable? Overwhelmed? Over stimulated? Tired? Afraid? Angry? And so on. Are your responses the same for everyone or are they different depending on who the person is?

There are no wrong answers here. What is important here is that you feel safe. What you do around one person has nothing to do with another person due to safety concerns. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Someone trying to convince you that you must treat everyone the same with your boundaries isn’t being safe.
