The 6 of Wands

The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” – Ronald Reagan Recently, you’ve found yourself acting as a torchbearer, lighting the way for others on the road towards change. It has not always been easy; there have been times where those who are adverse to change have acted out against you, or the road ahead has been dark and difficult to visualize. However, you have successfully delivered your people to a better place, and it is time for them to celebrate you for it! Now is the time to relax and appreciate your victory and accept the gratitude of others. Your success will continue to carry you forward into the future, and the light of your innovation will inspire those around you to follow and do the same. Take this time to nurse your self-esteem and raise your confidence, but don’t let this praise inflate your ego. The journey may not yet be over, but your confidence and willingness to go against conventional norms will continue to bring you new and exciting opportunities.
6 of wands meaning for relationship Your romantic life has seen some massive changes as of late. It may have seemed incredibly nerve wracking at first, but your initiative to pursue change that others may have been too afraid to initiate was worth it in the end. Perhaps you made the first move to create a new relationship; your partner is endlessly grateful for the love that you were willing to begin sharing with them. Take this time to let them shower you with the affection that you deserve. If you’ve recently seen the end of a relationship, now is the time to recognize that you made the right choice. Those around you agree; comfort yourself with the support that they have offered you. They may have been too nervous to tell you their true feelings about the relationship, but they are so glad to see that you made the right choice. If you are actively looking for love, now is the time to step out of your comfort zone and take the initiative! Go talk to them on break, slip them your social media handles, or ask if they’d be interested in going on a date. Chances are, they will be more than willing to follow you into the relationship that you aim to create.

A laurelled horseman bears one staff adorned with a laurel crown; footmen with staves are at his side.

Divinatory Meanings: The card has been so designed that it can cover several significations; on the surface, it is a victor triumphing, but it is also great news, such as might be carried in state by the King’s courier; it is expectation crowned with its own desire, the crown of hope, and so forth.

Reversed: Apprehension, fear, as of a victorious enemy at the gate; treachery, disloyalty, as of gates being opened to the enemy; also indefinite delay.

6 of wands meaning for job and career In your work life, you are beginning to reap the rewards of leading the charge into a new project. Your team recognizes your stellar leadership skills and are endlessly grateful for what you’ve helped them accomplish. Now is the time to accept their praise and continue to assert yourself as a leader and a forward-thinker. Is there a new endeavor that you think your company would benefit from pursuing? Take the initiative and keep this momentum when continuing to move forward. Your superiors have also begun to notice your value as a worker that takes the initiative to go above and beyond expectations. Consider inquiring into a new promotion; they may already be considering you for a leadership position. If you are currently seeking new employment, now is the time to show potential employers that you are a go-getter that exudes qualities far superior to the competition. Follow up on applications and interviews, and try to get in contact with those who are already employed within the company. Most applicants don’t go beyond the initial application process; by taking the first step in following up, you will show recruiters that you have what it takes to survive and thrive as a member of their team.
6 of wands reversed main meaning When The 6 of Wands appears in the reversed position, you may be struggling with the attention that comes along with being a leader. It may seem as though those around you are more apt to point out your smaller flaws, and it may also feel as though your privacy has taken a major hit. Unfortunately, this is part of becoming a figure that people look to for guidance. The sooner you accept this fact and adapt to the changes that it brings, the more at peace you will be with your new position. While others may criticize your smaller flaws that were never really brought to light before, don’t let this push you to changing who you are to impress others. In the end, you have no obligation to drastically change yourself to fit the image that others have for you. By keeping yourself genuine, flaws and all, this will also help maintain a sense of trust and realism amongst those who follow you.
