Title: Lord of Prudence
Element: Fire
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Decan: Mars in Leo; August 12 – 22
Thumbnail Meaning: Courage, valour, fighting spirit; obstacles, opposition, wrangling, quarrels.

The suit of Wands is a suit of activity, energy, combat and conflict. Its cards touch on the exhilaration of the struggle, the zeal and dedication needed to win any battle.

There is a downside to these drives: frustration, disagreeing for the sake of disagreement, becoming addicted to the struggle and its adrenaline rush, thus ensuring a perpetuation of the status quo.

The Seven of Wands is one of the purest expressions of this contradiction. In it, one man holds off all comers with a single wand. It isn’t easy for him, and who knows if he will succeed. Is he in the right, or are they? It’s not clear.

This card is the “Lord of Valour.” Valour refers to courage in battle. The word comes from the Latin valere, which means “to be strong, to be worthy.” Romans used to use this word as a salutation.

This card, like the poem, represents the best of what masculinity has to offer: integrity, courage in the face of danger, a strong will, determination. It can also refer to thoughtless fighting and meaningless struggles.
