Seven of Wands & Ace of Swords tarot card combinations
Cards combination description
triumph (equally, other cards representing success)
Card 1 - Seven of Wands
The Seven of Wands has an image of a man who is standing on a tall hill and being challenged by the opponents below. He seems to be defending this position and attacking in retaliation. It is interesting to note that in the Rider-Waite depiction of the Seven of Wands, the man is wearing not matching shoes. This is linked to the symbolism of being on uneven ground or not having a stable footing in life. Full card's description
Card 2 - Ace of Swords
The Ace of Swords shows a hand emerging from the clouds wielding a double-edged sword. This double edged sword carries a golden crown while being encircled by a wreath. The wreath has for a long time been associated with victory, success and great achievement.
The crown is used as the symbol for both royalty and the power to rule that comes with royalty.
Behind the foreground, the sword stands floating over a varied setting - which holds both mountains and sea, which are used as symbols of the vast reach and distant lands that the swords can be used to conquer, as well as ambition. Full card's description
