The individuals in the 4 of wands are liberated from the walled city, which sits squarely behind them. The sun shines brightly as people are released from their responsibilities. There is a festive flavour as people move about and dance, whilst those to the left of the card talk freely and socialise.
This celebration comes after a long period of hard work, establishing a foundation of stability and security. The 4 of wands signifies a time to recognise professional achievements and the fruits of labour. Bricks and mortar and home and property are a strong feature of the 4 of wands, conveying a message of domestic harmony and stability, but also of working hard to secure a home or house.
In a Reading = celebration, solidity, confidence, released momentarily from responsibility, taking pride in your achievements, optimism, stability, cohesiveness, home, domestic harmony, property (literally your house/home) or bricks and mortar
