Like the upright Eight of Wands Witches Tarot, the reversed card generally advises you to be calm and steady. Life always has problems you cannot push or rush.

You may be feeling guilty about something when you receive the Eight of Wands in reverse. Remember that nothing can change the past. The only good thing a mistake can make is a lesson to change the behavior of the future. Sometimes the best thing is to forgive yourself. But of course, your conscience still has its own reasons, so don’t ignore it completely.
