What does the Seven of Wands mean?

October 6, 2016

Seven of Wands -- Tarot of the MastersHere is a pithy meaning for the Seven of Wands:
Beware of “crab mentality.”

Crab mentality basically means “if I can’t have it, neither can you.” The metaphor refers to a bucket of crabs. Individually, each crab could escape, but instead they grab at each other in a useless “king of the hill” competition that prevents any from escaping and ensures their collective doom. In human behavior, members of a group may attempt to negate or diminish the achievements of any member (out of either envy or spite) to halt his or her progress, thus ensuring their collective stagnation.


Note: Each of these pithy Tarot meanings is just one facet of its card. Find more of them on my Card Meanings page.  Also, get my Pithy Tarot eBook and LIKE my Pithy Tarot Facebook page!
