The Six Of Wands Tarot Card Meaning

Congratulations are in order for a success in your life recently.

The Six of Wands is a card of triumph and victory and says that currently you are in a place in your life where you have the right to feel proud. Of course, too much pride can get in your way, so you want to be sure you aren’t getting over-confident but all in all things are looking up for you. Typically this card will appear in a reading after some sort of test of wills. It is not a fluff card that represents small successes. Rather, this is a time of congratulations on something larger in your life. You can feel proud that you have put forth your best effort.

With the symbolism in the card we get the feeling that it is referring to emotion and material gain in your life represented by the colors green and blue. There is a rider with atop a white horse of victory and even his wand has a laurel tied to the top hanging like a banner. The card announces that you can celebrate in your own right. You are the master of your own destiny and your actions alone have set you on the correct path.

The card is very individualistic with a strong emphasis on what you have done correctly. Now is a time to be proud in yourself but not everything is roses. Understand that your success may attract negative attention by others who are jealous or envious of your achievements. Steer clear from those that would potentially want to see you knocked down a couple of pegs and secretly root for your failure. There is always that one person who is dissatisfied with their own lot in life that will not be happy for you. The Six of Wands serves as a reminder that not everyone around you can be taken at face value.

This is also a time in which you may feel an expansion emotionally or spiritually. You may feel a high from the rush of adrenaline for conquering the issues in your life as of late. Do not allow your confidence and joy to get too carried away. The battle that you have faced is over and you have succeeded. Allowing your exuberance to knock you off your guard in other areas can be detrimental, especially in court or legal battles.

***NOTE: Should you find your victory is related to legal issues specifically be prepared for an appeal or someone that will try to question the judgment in some way. You have a good standing for success but don’t allow communications or bragging to trip you up. Be mindful of texts, emails, letters, and verbal interactions so that they do not get taken out of context later and used against you.

You are in a good place right now and it’s a great idea to discuss what you want… but don’t put the cart before the horse. Right now it’s simply an idea you are putting out there. Do not expect action right away.

Another meaning that is associated with the Six of Wands is focusing on the positive rather than the negative. In all truthfulness, this lesson is felt in many of the wands cards because it is a fiery and passionate suit.
