Six of Wands Upright

The Six of Wands show that you have not only achieved a goal, but you’re also being recognized for having accomplished it. Perhaps you have gotten public acclaim of late? Now, it is time to use this praise to boost your confidence and continue with your efforts. Because the Six of Wands is such a wonderfully encouraging card, you should take this time to renew your sense of faith in yourself. Be proud of whatever you have achieved and set a new goal.

Entrepreneurs should focus on their personal brand, for example. Promote yourself in all that you do. Build up your personal networks with people who will also bolster your endeavours and cheer for you when things go well. However, be careful not to let all this love and support go to your head. The downside to this minor arcana card is that you can soon become over-inflated with arrogance.

For those who are entrepreneurs, it’s important that you maintain a steady focus and stay ambitious.

Six of Wands Reversed

Reversed, the Six of Wands means that you may have taken a fall that left you face down in the mud. Now, you lack confidence in yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or seek support. You need to find your inner strength to keep moving forward. Further, if this fall from grace was in the work environment, you may want to consider moving on and reworking yourself. Try something new instead of fixing what has been broken one too many times.

Also, stop juggling so many obligations. Doing so only means that you’re stressing. If you drop one ball, you’re going to drop all of them; so single out what is most important to you and attack that first. Once you accomplish that, stay motivated and go on to finish the other objectives.

Because the Six of Wands is a supporting card, look to the other cards you have drawn for more precise answers to what is holding you back.
