Here is how Crowley describes the meaning of the Four of Wands.
Perfection or completion of a thing built up with trouble and labour. Rest after labour, subtlety, cleverness, beauty, mirth, success in completion. Reasoning faculty, conclusions drawn from previous knowledge.
The card turns up as the latest in a long series from the suit of Wands which commenced twelve days ago (and has been punctuated by several Trumps and a single card from the suit of Cups – another Four). These cards have come during another period of spiritual renewal in my life.
Lady Harris’ rendition calls to mind the Wheel, which turned up three days ago. Again, from Crowley:
In the symbol, the ends of the wands touch a circle, showing the completion and limitation of the original work. It is within this circle that the flames (four double, as if to assert the balance) of the Energy are seen to play, and there is no intention to increase the scope of the original Will. But this limitation bears in itself the seeds of disorder.
In other words, as we celebrate “completion” we remember that every significant accomplishment buys us a ticket to a more complex and difficult set of challenges. The perfection of spirit is a journey, and the completion of any cycle generates a new one.
This card also represents Venus in Aries, which decan we enter this coming weekend.
