Seven of Wands

A so it is, the Glory is done:

And like for all the Seven’s, the leaving of the beautiful Tiphareth comes like the fall from paradise.

But now it is time to fight.  At least struggle (hence the name Valor)

So the Seven of Wands talks of a situation where we have to face up forces stronger than ourself, situations that at first sight seem hopeless, yet we’ll have to use all that we’ve learned and fight.

Of course, it’s not about fighting anyone.  It’s myself I must fight.  Or the infinite universe, whichever explanation of reality you choose. As Crowley says:

The army has been thrown into disorder; if victory is to be won, it will be by dint of individual valour – a “soldiers’ battle”.
