The Seven of Rods describe a situation full of conflicts, of quarrel. We are attacked and have to defend ourselves. In most cases this fight is not about bagatelles; there is quite a lot at stake. The aggression which we encounter is considerable, the attackers sometimes use drastic means. Now is the time to mobilise all our strength, all our recources, and to fight back as hard as we can. The Seven of Rods also mean that it is quite likely that we fight from a favourable position and have good chances to win.
