Today’s Tarot card with Penny Harrington is CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES from the Psychic Tarot for the Heart by John Holland. This card is the same as the 7 of Wands in the Rider Waite deck.
In this picture, one man is defiantly standing and looking at the oversized heads of three other men. The scene is dark and serious. He appears to be defying all of them. From the expressions on their faces, they seem steadfast, but not angry. Wands always want to take action. The 7’s are about challenges and obstacles and finding solutions.
So, this man needs to decide if he is going to take on the challenge of dealing with 3 opponents or any one of them. Or, is it worth fighting for his option at all. Sometimes when we have spent a lot of our life fighting for what we want, it is very difficult to step back and not fight. But sometimes that is the best choice. This card is asking you to decide how much energy you want to put into a fight to get your way.
When this card comes up in your reading, it is time to analyze the situation and choose the best path for you. Sometimes the best path is walking away and sometimes the best path is standing and fighting. Sometimes it is negotiating a compromise.
