The reversed Seven of Wands foretells upcoming difficulties and problems that you can't prepare for. On the other hand, the card may also portend that for some reason you are not prepared to fight for your rights. Although you have managed to make significant progress in your life, you currently lack the perseverance to defend the position you have achieved. The obstacles ahead may be greater than you think, so when you see the Seven of Wands reversed it is important to show the determination and persistence that you currently lack. The reversed Seven of Wands can also, in certain circumstances, speak about how you are provoking others to fight, including your need for adrenaline and constant tension. The reversed Seven of Wands is also a card of inconsistency and lack of strategy in your actions, which can make your enemies gain the upper hand or even win the battle. The Seven of Wands reversed also heralds a period of criticism and judgement from society and those close to you. This card encourages you to withdraw for a while and think about your future actions.

The reversed Seven of Wands also indicates that you don't want to face up to the problems ahead, allowing them to destroy your relationship. If it is the other way around, you need to show the strength and perseverance necessary to overcome life's obstacles. This task will be much easier if you face the problems that surround you together. For single people the reversed Seven of Wands portends a period of loss of self-confidence and difficulties in competing with others that may in some way overshadow your efforts.
