How about the 5 of Wands for combatting procrastination, self-sabotage, and all the demands that distract you from your goal. Then there’s the 7 of Wands for setting boundaries and claiming the time and space to work on your project without interference.

Hi Biddy ,
How come the goal setting cards are all male?( Of course I understand the meaning applies across the gender groups)

King of wands , Ace of Swords and Seven of Cups… Thankyou. :)

I see the four of swords as a goal setting card- It appears to me as signifying rest, planning and contemplation before undertaking a challenge. It is the mental preparation for the task one is about undertake, the stilling of the mind before the game or conflict- the devising of strategy.

That’s an interesting perspective, Thomas. Thanks so much for sharing.

This looks like a wonderful list, but I’m not sure how to use it. I am one year away from finishing my bachelors but besides knowing that I don’t really enjoy my selected field, I have next to nothing in life direction. Could I please get some suggestions on how to use this list, should I meditate on each card to gain insight in my soul searching, or are they to be used in a spread? Thank you in advance.
