The Symbolism of the Four of Wands

The symbology is therefore pretty straightforward. The man and woman are in some kind of relationship, perhaps soulmates of some kind – in business or pleasure, and they have clearly worked together well to create success and are now celebrating, as shown by the support of everyone around them.

It may mean that we are struggling to work as a team in business or pleasure and that the security we are looking for is somehow eluding us still despite our efforts. This is perhaps not the time to rest our laurels and celebrate, but to rather work harder and look at ways in which we may be resisting working with others.
