Six of Wands



Six hands of various skin tones emerge from the left and right edges of the scene, three stacked vertically on each side. Each hand loosely holds a trophy in its palm. The trophies are all different colors: green, orange, cyan, pink, blue, and purple. The background is white with a light green square pattern.

Six of Wands Upright

The Six of Wands indicates victory, often accompanied by public recognition. It feels nice to be celebrated, but remember who has supported you along the way. Consider thanking them for their support. Stay humble, as you still have challenges ahead— but it’s okay to revel in the smaller accomplishments along the way.

Six of Wands Reversed

You don’t feel you are getting the recognition you deserve. It’s okay to speak up for yourself, especially at work. That could mean keeping a running list of your accomplishments to share with your manager during weekly meetings. Outside of work, try telling friends and family when you do something you’re proud of. They will be glad to celebrate you if you invite them along. If you are feeling stuck on a project, creative or otherwise, take stock of the resources you have at hand. You don’t have to go it alone, and accepting help won’t make the accomplishment any less “yours.”
