The Eight of Wands shows eight sprouting wands flying through the air at great speed. The flight of the wands suggests change, movement and travel. The sky in the background is clear, indicating that there is now little that stands in your way, and there is a beautiful river flowing freely and giving life to the landscape around it.
The Eight of Wands indicates that the struggles of the Seven of Wands have now all but cleared and you have the freedom and space to move forward with your plans and activities once again. The Eight of Wands contains a high level of energy and movement that propels you forward to reach your goals at a much faster pace than ever before. You can expect to be very busy, but this is one of those ‘good busy’ periods during which you are enthusiastic and energetic about the progress you are making.

Everything is moving very quickly right now, so make the most of this forward movement and rapid action to manifest your goals and dreams. Allow the energy of the Universe to flow through you and propel you closer to your goal. Trying to slow things down because you’re not ready or you’re fearful about the unknown will just create a wasted opportunity. Use the momentum instead to fuel positive change and create big results.
The Eight of Wands also invites you to be laser-focused with your intentions and actions. Get clear about what you want to manifest, then align all of your resources and energy to focus on that particular goal. Remove all distractions and devote yourself to the task with complete concentration, determination and will. This experience can be very productive, allowing you to accomplish a lot in short time.

To maximise this energy, it is important to ensure that your activities are focused on your broader goals and that you are investing in the right things at the right time. Also, make sure that before you move to the next task your previous task is complete.
