Sometimes when you are reading the cards they turn up upside down. There are some Tarot teachers who ascribe a different meaning to the card when it does. Personally, I’ve never paid much attention to upside down cards but it is certainly interesting to contemplate the possibilities.
If the Eight of Wands means you are about to see progress for your efforts when it’s upright maybe when it’s upside down it means it’s time for you to put in a lot of effort. It’s a kick up the bum in other words. You need to shoot those wands (your skills and talents) up into the sky, put them out into the world, if you want to see progress.
