The Star reversed symbolizes distrust, disappointment, and disillusionment. It can be unfulfilled hopes, self-doubt, being obstinate, poor judgement, rigidity, and egotism. Paired with the 2 of Cups reversed this indicates that today’s personal interactions are going to be disharmonious. Relationships are contentious and in disarray. There is conflict, resentment and even separation. The 7 of Wands, however, is a card of self-defense as you face an array of foes who are beneath you. This is about maintaining your position with courage as matters come to a head. And it does indicate coping successfully during a time of adversity with determination and perseverance.
Despite your personal misgivings in today’s situation, despite feeling that things are hopeless, you are in a position of advantage. And it’s better to fight than to let yourself be taken advantage of by people who have hidden intentions and secret agendas.
