When upright, the Seven of Wands suggests that the user has accomplished something worthy of recognition, but once all eyes are turned to them, there is a high possibility that there will be naysayers and critics waiting for the chance to say their piece in return. You are about to undergo a harsh period of criticism, and much of it won’t feel deserved. Don’t be afraid to defend yourself, but be aware that the brighter you shine, the more people will want to see you fall. Part of the challenge of creating something amazing is proving to others that your success is deserved. Work hard, believe in what you’ve done, and know that this adversity will make you stronger.
