The card depicts the completed keep and the continued construction efforts of a full castle. Two of the towers on the wall are complete and another is partially finished as is the wall between them. Banners can be seen flying from the four corner ramparts of the keep.
The completed keep symbolizes the successful completion of a major milestone that is a part of a much bigger undertaking. There four banners flying on the ramparts of the keep to represent the wands, although only three of them can be seen. The rest of the construction validates the continued efforts involved toward the bigger goal.
Initial success and the promise of further triumph is the main theme presented with this version of the Four of Wands. It does not insure success beyond what has already been accomplished and makes it obvious that there is much more work to be accomplished. Favorable expectations can be assumed provided continued diligence and hard work on the project. Although the subject here is a castle, any endeavor can be considered, be it a marriage, spiritual quest, work project, or your 401k.

Ron Soller has been studying tarot since the beginning of 2002. His discovery of tarot was brought on by a search for a tarot deck that one of his favorite fantasy artists, Richard Kane Ferguson, was working on. This led him to Aeclectic Tarot, and that site sparked his initial interests.
In his tarot explorations, Ron has rediscovered his love of writing, and has been exploring his spiritual side, investigating various Eastern philosophies.
