Draw near to the hearth – Eight of Bows

Eight of Wands

Daily draw 19th April 2011 When all I had was the Waite-Smith deck, I used to interpret the Eight of Wands very literally. I saw the ends of eight Wands as they fly through the air. So I though: Aha! It's about endings. Kinda understandable I gues...
