What is the meaning of symbols in Eight of Wands Tarot Card?

Eight of Wands symbolizes the current moment in time. Here and now. But the eight is also a symbol of Power. This card tells to not think about the future, use the day that you have. According to the ancients: “Youth flies quickly, so catch the passing time”.
