Meaning in Past, Present and Future Positions
Every Tarot reading involves the placement of some Tarot cards into specific positions that make up a complete pattern. These positions represent your past, your present and your future. Where one card lands establishes a meaning that would often be quite different were it to have landed in another position. Some cards in the deck are far more powerful in one of these positions than in others.
When the Eight of Wands is in the past position in your reading, you might be able to look back on a time when everything almost magically landed in the right position for you to take advantage of great opportunities. If this was the case, your reading wants you to take stock of how well you managed to do with the chances you were given. If you are in a good space and are getting this reading during a calm time in your life, the Eight of Wands in the past position indicates that when the universe worked in your favor a few months or years ago, you ran with it. You got ahead and made the most of the access you were granted, the favors that were bestowed and the contacts that networking delivered. If the purpose of your Tarot reading is because things are not going so well right now, the Eight of Wands in this position lets you know that you may have not made the most of the opportunities in your recent past.
The Eight of Wands in the present position is an exciting place. Look around – this is a golden opportunity of a time for you. Things are going your way. Sometimes we are so used to plodding through oppositions and setbacks that making strides and fulfilling goals creates an anxiety because the familiarity of failure is replaced by a strange success. Are you getting a Tarot reading because everything going right in your life is producing a weird feeling?
In the future position in your reading, the Eight of Wands is a harbinger of opportunity. The Tarot wants to assure you that big things are coming and that a vision you have for the way things should be might actually start to occur. Stay upbeat and look for signs that things are turning your way. When you see this action happening, put positive energy out there and let it return the amplified rewards of the universe to you.
