Known as the Lord of Victory, the Six of Wands represents clarity and success. Aligned with Jupiter in Leo, this is the King of Kings – Jupiter is the King of the Gods and Leo is King of the Beasts, so we have some serious levels of significance going on here.
The feeling with this card is of unexpected jubilant success, after having struggled for so long against the odds, when victory comes, it is a glorious feeling like no other. All of the nay-sayers, all of the obstacles, all of the self doubt you have felt are washed away and now you can bask in that feeling of a well deserved victory.
Fire is the uplifting Essence of the Wands, and Six is the number of harmony – so you can truly enjoy this period as one of well deserved satisfaction and triumph. Be aware that this is a temporary state and the fiery jubilation will soon change to something else, so grasp this opportunity while it is here and it bodes well to have other irons in the fire so to speak, so that you are ever creating more opportunity.
There is public recognition for creative endeavours or achievements, and yet the work is not done yet – there is more that shall be asked of you, and this period will serve to let you know that your efforts are never in vain, there is always someone there to appreciate your talents.
This card is prompting you to carry out your plans – don’t wallow in the shadows wondering “What if?” but seize the moment, which has power and magic in it, if only you will act.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
― H. Jackson Brown Jr.
