Six of Wands Interpretations

The six of wands is what others and myself refer to as “the hero card”. This derives from the traditional Universal/Rider-Waite artwork which pictures a warrior atop a horse making his way through a parade. This card rings true to the title ‘victory’ in this sense as well. Jupiter, the force of generosity and expansion combined with the pride and radiance of Leo produces a card of undeniable confidence and ownership. When this card is pulled it may indicate success, praise, and accomplishment. Negative aspects are tied with pride or arrogance.

Additional Interpretations

“Gain. Victory after strife: Love: pleasure gained by labour: carefulness, sociability and avoiding of strife, yet victory therein: also insolence, and pride of riches and success, etc. The whole dependent on the dignity.” 6

“Victory. Energy in balanced manifestation. Love. Gain and success. Triumph after strife. Ill-dignified: Insolence and pride.” 5

“Victory. Tiphareth in the suit of Fire. Jupiter and Leo.” 5

“Victory. Jupiter in Leo. Tiphareth. Caduceus, Phoenix and Lotus wands are in arranged order, the warring and the peaceful opposites are balanced.” 5

Axank’s Dream Recall

December 30 2013—January 01, 2014
For a few moments I was a mountain tour guide on a familiar mountain I’ve climbed. In another dream, I dreamt I was offered a position in a company a family friend was working for—a position that was ‘perfectly meant for me’ based on my experience.

The first dream notes leadership and importance, the other a reward and matter of success.
