Six of Wands Tarot Card Meanings
The meaning of this card is easy to relate to the image found in the Gilded Tarot. The rider carries a wand topped with a small laurel wreath, symbol of the victor, as banners fly and crowds cheer in his presence.
The Six of Wands appears when others are commending your efforts; it can represent a promotion at work, an achievement or an award, or simply receiving the open approval of others. It brings the satisfaction and reward of a job well done with recognition for your endeavours and this can apply in any area of life, although it is often found connected with work matters.
This card can also signify a messenger, and so it may herald the arrival of important news.
If reversed or ill-dignified this card thwarts effort to accomplish plans, which may be abandoned or fail. For some this card represents internal treachery.
