Six of Wands
Recognition • Celebration • Victory
The Six of Wands is a card of celebration. It indicates that you have been successful in focusing your natural talents and skills towards rewarding endeavours. Your confidence in yourself is full and healthy. It’s your time to shine.
The Six of Wands often appears in a reading when you have experienced some overdue public recognition. Unlike the Four of Wands, the Six of Wands is anything but humble. It speaks to parades and champagne. Good fortune has come your way. Past this celebration, a significant success is in your future.
In readings where self-consciousness is a serious factor, this card may be suggesting that you give yourself positive encouragement more than you have been. You should be proud of your accomplishments and be able to thank the people who have helped you thus far. Hold your head up high.
Six of Wands Reversed
Ego • Fall from Grace • Lack of Confidence
The Six of Wands reversed represents an unhealthy self-esteem. While it’s important to feel good about your accomplishments, you should recognize that feeling superior to others will cause them to not want to help you at all. Your success may feel individual but you must remember many factors helped develop it, including help from the Universe. Be grateful for help.
The Six of Wands reversed can also represents a fall from grace that results from either too much ego or a loss of confidence. Perhaps you fumbled on a project. The Six of Wands in this case may suggest that you have been struggling to juggle your goals. The case might be that you have lost sight of your purpose and have been saying yes to too much, hoping not to miss anything opportunistic. Unfortunately, this tendency can cause you to fail to center yourself and your activities towards a central goal.
