From the Robin Wood deck

This card is about action – and sudden, forceful and speedy action too. It makes me think of archery (what doesn’t?) – the arrow in flight.

You don’t loose the arrow until you’ve been through all the steps of preparation. To loose is an act of confidence and focus, and you know a good loose as soon as the arrow leaves the bow.

That’s the 8 Wands – the arrow has left the bow, the direction has been set and you know already if it was a good loose.

Good or bad, the arrow will land true and you hopefully will get another shot!
