I was introduced to this deck at the 2007 Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Houston. Marilyn Campbell, who designed the deck and wrote the companion interpretive book, gave a workshop of Psychic Fiction. In the workshop, she read one or more cards for everyone present. The 7 of Wands was one of the cards I drew. I remember because she looked right at me and said, it doesn’t come faster if you push the button every five seconds. Or words to that effect. I laughed, but she was right on. I’m an Aries and I can be quite impatient at times.
In this card, a businesswoman stands waiting for an elevator. The companion book, Tarot of the Lotus Circle by Marilyn Campbell, Jasmine-Jade Enterprises, 2007, says:
Blockages; Minor Obstacles; Solvable Puzzles; Business negotiations are in order; Taking a stand. The change required at the moment is in your attitude.
If you draw this card when you’re looking for a yes or no answer to a query, the answer is clearly No.
This is a lovely deck, very contemporary, with a strong feminist feel. Unfortunately, it appears to be out of print at the moment, though a few are available through Amazon’s affiliates.
