The Four of Wands refers to Chesed (Mercy) in the suit of Fire.This represents the manifestation of all active power below the Abyss.
The Will of the Two of Wands, Dominion, has been transmitted through the Three of Wands-Virtue and has become a solid system, such as Order, Law and Government. In the zodiac the Four of Wands refers to Venus in Aries, which indicates that one can't establish one's work without tact and gentleness.
The Ram headed wands are sacred to Chesed, while the Dove is sacred to Venus. The Circle shows the completion of and limitation of the original work..The flames show the balance of the energy applied.
When thrown this card speaks of settlement, arrangements completed, Perfected work, and since much energy went into establishing such work it also symbolizes a completion of a work within 3wks or 3 months, built up with trouble and labor. It is also rest after labor. There is also a degree of subtlety, cleverness, and mirth in this card as the Aries Ram is involved. Venus insures beauty, and success in completion.Conclusions drawn from previous knowledge attribute to a healthy reasoning faculty.
If ill dignified, sometimes insincere, unreadiness,unreliability, unsteady, through over anxiety. Can also mean hurriedness of action. It behooves the reader of Tarot, to understand that this is a lot of power formed into work that will go no further---it is done.
