Upright Six of Wands Card Meaning

When the Six of Wands is upright in a Tarot reading, it's an indication that achieving a goal is within reach. It is the time for you to receive the recognition you have long sought. It is when you receive all the acclaim, honors, and rewards that you so richly deserve. You feel it has all been worthwhile. Success is near and you should rest assured. It does not necessarily represent victory over someone else. It could be over oneself, over the environment, or against all odds. A word of caution: Self-esteem is great, feeling good about one's achievements is part of one's success, but you must ensure that you are not arrogant and do not feel superior to others. Success, after all, is very fickle. Here today, gone tomorrow!

Reversed Six of Wands Card Meaning

When the Six of Wands is reversed in a Tarot reading, it means you are not living your dreams. It's about a lack of success. It can also be about not tapping in to your leadership abilities but blindly following someone else. It can also indicate that someone is arrogant or grandiose.

Six of Wands Card Love Meaning

The Six of Wands in a love Tarot reading means you might be really feeling the love. If you're single, someone perfect for you is about to enter the picture. If you're in a relationship, you and your partner are sharing in each other's success and supporting one another.
