Meaning in Past, Present and Future Positions Every Tarot reading involves the placement of some Tarot cards into specific positions that make up a complete pattern. These positions represent your past, your present and your future. Where one card lands establishes a meaning that would often be quite different were it to have landed in another position. Some cards in the deck are far more powerful in one of these positions than in others.
When the Eight of Wands is in the past position in your reading, you might be able to look back on a time when everything almost magically landed in the right position for you to take advantage of great opportunities. If this was the case, your reading wants you to take stock of how well you managed to do with the chances you were given.
If you are in a good space and are getting this reading during a calm time in your life, the Eight of Wands in the past position indicates that when the universe worked in your favor a few months or years ago, you ran with it.
You got ahead and made the most of the access you were granted, the favors that were bestowed and the contacts that networking delivered. If the purpose of your Tarot reading is because things are not going so well right now, the Eight of Wands in this position lets you know that you may have not made the most of the opportunities in your recent past. The Eight of Wands in the present position is an exciting place.
Look around — this is a golden opportunity of a time for you. Things are going your way. Sometimes we are so used to plodding through oppositions and setbacks that making strides and fulfilling goals creates an anxiety because the familiarity of failure is replaced by a strange success. Are you getting a Tarot reading because everything going right in your life is producing a weird feeling?
In the future position in your reading, the Eight of Wands is a harbinger of opportunity.Eight of Wands in a love reading

He could hear the voices of the other Wands behind him but instead of looking back to see where they were he just kept moving forward. Suddenly, he found the top. He had reached Stage 7. His calf and thigh muscles burning from exertion. The bike gathered speed rapidly as it hurtled down the side of the mountain. His aching muscles no longer having to push and shove. It was like sitting on a rocket after it had been launched.
This part of the race was taking care of itself. He had been in the lead up until now and all he had to do was hold on and keep the bike on track. He could already taste his success.
The Eight of Wands Tarot Card
Suddenly he heard the roars of the other Wands behind him. They too had found their bikes and were now in hot pursuit. Everyone was back in the race again and some were risking life and limb, bouncing their bikes over large boulders, sailing through the air and then bouncing back onto the ground again. Everyone was doing what they could to get ahead.
Down below, at the foot of the mountain, a river meandered by. There was a wide ramp on the near side of the riverbank that was well flagged. He realised what it was for and what he had to do. The other competitors were closing in and he could hear their bikes drawing ever nearer. The sheer speed alone was incredible. Never had they travelled so fast.
Down below him the river ran and for a moment he was suspended in time. It was the most amazing feeling to just soar through the air. What a rush, wow! Suddenly the bike made contact with the ground again as it landed safely and upright on the other side of the river.
As he cycled on to check in at Stage 8 he could hear the collective manic screams of his fellow competitors as they experienced the same thrill. What a heady experience he thought, and wished he could go back and do it again. Alas, he still had a race to win and he was not home and dry yet. The Sports channels would show the speed of their exhilarating descent for some time to come. The skies are bright and clear. The persistence and tenacity of the Seven has paid off and by not succumbing to the competition, the difficulties have passed allowing the full strength of the Wands energy to flow unhindered.
This just how Fire likes to move and is probably why we do not see any characters in this Card. At last, They are free to be who they want to be and go where they want to go.
The Wands travel in unison, not clashing or crossing in their journey. In fact they gather momentum with each second they travel. At this stage there is no point trying to make any changes or attempts to re-route them as they have taken on a life and powerful force of their own. All the ideas, plans, dreams, visions and aspirations of the previous Seven Cards are eventually coming into manifestation and the Wands can begin to see the longed for positive results of all their actions.
A rush and buzz of excitement travels earth-bound with the Wands. Wherever they land will explode into action and colour. The arrow-like Wands are on course and have their target well in sight.
A tail wind increases their speed, and like comets, they explode into the atmosphere. Otherwise, your efforts are for naught. When the Eight of Wands tarot is in the reversed position, it just means that you no longer have any interest in whatever unexpected is going to happen.
Rather than being caught unaware, you and your partner are taking matters into your own hands. You are controlling the situation and softening the blow of whatever awaits in the future.

You work hard so that you will have money to spend on yourself and everything else that you may want.

Ultimately, if the card was then seen as being a sign of bad luck, then this would not exactly be the kind of predicament that you would be wanting to find yourself in. The card itself shows eight wands effectively pointing you in the direction in which you should head. It can also be seen as representing a period of delays or problems having come to an end, and that is hardly going to then be representative of bad luck.
