The Six of Wands is a card that represents success. The keyword associated with the card is ‘victory’, and if this card is drawn upright during your reading, you know it is a good sign.The Six of Wands often features a victory wreath of some sort, often in a parade. We can see here that the wreath is draped around the wands standing on a hill overlooking a house. The building represents the completion of a project after a lot of hard labour.
The Six of Wands is all about success and the acknowledgment of hard work paying off. It indicates that you have been hard at work on a project or an ambition, struggled through the obstacles and challenges that the Five of Wands presented, and pulled through to achieve what you set out to do. You are achieving your goals, and you are also being publicly recognised and rewarded for your success. You may have recently received a reward, or may have been praised by your peers or your superiors for your work.
When this card is drawn, it is a good time to be bold and daring, with confidence in your abilities to go on and accomplish more excellent results. It should instill pride in yourself and your success. This may be the time to ask yourself, what can I do next? What can I go on to achieve that is even bigger and better than what I have already pulled off? Now is the time to shine, and make sure people are noticing you. This could be the perfect time to go for a promotion.
However, as with every card, you need to be careful. The downside to all of this success and recognition is the risk of arrogance and self-importance. By all means, be proud of yourself and what you have achieved, but remember that there is a fine line between pride and an inflated ego.
If the card is drawn in reverse, it could mean that you have not received the attention you deserve for your efforts, and are consequently finding yourself doubting your abilities and your potential to go to achieve success. Your confidence has taken a hit and you may feel as though you have failed not only yourself, but others also. You may be attempting to achieve too many things at the same time and are struggling to juggle all of the tasks at once, which is why they are not as successful as you would have hoped.
The best course of action is to prioritise, figure out what things are the most important, and focus on them. If you put all of your attention into a few things, instead of trying to cover a lot, you will be able to do them properly, and this will lead to the success and recognition that you deserve.
