The meaning of the Four of Wands Tarot card is ‘stability.’ You will draw the Four of Wands when all is well (or is going to be well) in your home life and partnerships.
Four of Wands General Tarot Meaning
The Four of Wands is a very family-orientated card. For the period of time that the Four of Wands represents, your family will be on your mind. Therefore, if you’re looking for reassurance about a family matter or issue, the Four of Wands is the card you want to see.
As it symbolizes the family, the Four of Wands also represents the home. Perhaps you’re considering making a house move or will in the future. If you desire an uproot, the Four of Wands is a good omen. Often, it will be a family home in the cards as opposed to a ‘lads pad’ or apartment.
On a more minor level, there could be home improvements. While this may be stressful, don’t worry, as all will end well and you will have your house just as you want it.
In general, times will be happy. Relationships, jobs, and work will be stable for a short time, at least. As it predicts a comfortable outcome, the Four of Wands in a future position is desirable. If there’s a particular area of your life you’re concerned about, the Four of Wands should put you at ease.
Although the Four of Wands is a positive card, there will be times when it appears as a negative or drawback. In these cases, it can mean that you’re too introverted and not willing to put yourself out there. You rarely venture out past your comfort zone and are too afraid to mingle with new people in a strange place. Your need to feel like you belong to something or somewhere, and this is also putting a damper on your creativity and independence.
Four of Wands Love Tarot Meaning
For love Tarot readings, the Four of Wands is a good card, as it means that your lover finds comfort in your company. Your partner would rather have you around than not. It can also symbolize the fact that they see you as someone who has long-term partner potential, not just as a fling. In fact, the Four of Wands is one of my Tarot cards which indicates love.
However, if the Four of Wands appears as a negative or in a sinister-looking spread, it can mean that – although your partner sees you as marriage material – they may not be ready to make that commitment just yet. If your lover seems overly childish or difficult to pin down, beware: just because they see you as marriage material doesn’t mean they’re ready to put a ring on it. I would be especially cautious when your Tarot spread includes a ‘lonely’ card such as The Hermit.
Although the Four of Wands is not always a marriage card per se, it marks romantic seriousness. The Four of Wands can mean that you will soon set up home with your partner, which of course is a notable commitment.

Four of Wands Feelings Tarot Meaning
The Four of Wands can mark a desire for your love (or potential lover) to settle down and have a family. They would like someone to live with, as they often get lonely on their own. Your lover/potential lover is searching for a serious relationship.
Alternatively, the Four of Wands can mean that your lover wants to bring you around their friends. Your partner may even want to show you off to their wider community.
Four of Wands in a Career or Business Tarot Reading
Even though the main meaning of the Four of Wands does not deal with business or career, I’m inclined to read it as a brilliant career card for several reasons.
Many company owners do not earn enough to take home a substantial wage from their business. Therefore, any indication that they are (new home, new car) generally means that they don’t fall into this category. Therefore, I read anything in a Tarot reading related to large purchases as a plus.
Usually, the Four of Wands comes up as a house you’ve bought, not one you’ve gotten through other means (rent, government). Most people know that it takes a substantial amount of money to be able to afford a home. The Four of Wands implies to me that your career is successful enough that you’ll be able to purchase a home.
In some career readings, the Four of Wands can predict an opportunity for you to work from home. If you don’t have the chance to work at home now, you will in the future.
Four of Wands Future Tarot Meaning
I often interpret the Four of Wands as the purchase of a new home. The home you will buy will make you much happier than the house you currently inhabit.
It’s a very good sign to get a Four of Wands in an outcome position for love Tarot readings: it can mean that you will set up a happy home with your lover. Even if all doesn’t last between you and your current partner, the Four of Wands is reassurance that you’ll one day be in a comfortable, stable relationship with someone you’ll live with.
Yes or No with The Four of Wands Tarot Meaning
General – The Four of Wands is usually a yes for most types of questions.
Do they like me? – The Four of Wands is a sign that the person you’re reading about is comfortable around you.
Am I pregnant? – I do not read the Four of Wands as a card that predicts pregnancy or conception. However, some readers do read the Four of Wands this way, so it just depends on how you choose to interpret it.
Is this relationship going to last? – Yes, this relationship is going to last for the foreseeable future.
Does the future of this look promising? – Yes, this situation looks promising the way it is. However, if you want a significant change, the Four of Wands is not so great.
Am I going to reconcile with my ex? – It doesn’t seem likely that your ex-lover will come back soon because they are currently comfortable with where they are, but that’s not to say they won’t return in the more distant future.
The Four of Wands as a Negative, Weakness, or Obstacle
When the Four of Wands appears in a negative, weakness, or obstacle Tarot spread position, this means you’re too introverted. You also may be the type of person who gets too attached to what you’re used to. You need to put yourself out of your comfort zone. Try meeting new people and having new experiences.
The Four of Wands can also appear as a negative when you or someone else involved in the situation is too comfortable with the way things currently are. If you desire change, the Four of Wands is not a reassuring card to receive in your Tarot reading.
The Four of Wands as a Positive, Strength, or Advantage
When the Four of Wands appears in a positive, strength, or advantage Tarot spread position, this means you will soon purchase property or buy a new home. If you’re already happy about the place in which you’re living, the Four of Wands simply predicts that you will become part of a community.
In some cases, the Four of Wands can appear as a positive when relationships are about to become more serious. In your relationship, you’re going to feel comfortable, safe, and secure. A major commitment could be on the horizon.
