Six of Wands (Upright)
A proud warrior returns triumphantly from battle. Five other wands can be seen being held up behind the rider and in the background as if by a crowd as he moves past them. In the background the sky is blue and a bright sun shines down on the rider and horse. The warrior is tired but looks pleased to be home. He wears golden armor, denoting his status, and a fire-red tunic with gold knotwork featuring dragons, the elemental creature of fire. The dragons symbolized on the warrior’s tunic are interwoven upon themselves and represent the never-ending cycle of nature and life. The man’s red, flowing cape has gold knotwork in the trim and trails over the back of his brown horse. The horse’s parade cloak is also a bright red, with a matching dragon knot motif. These vibrant, fiery colors on the warrior’s armor, tunic, and cloak indicate pride and accomplishment. The soldier holds in his right hand a tall blooming hawthorn wand; tied to that wand with a red ribbon is a green laurel wreath, which illustrates his triumphant return. Classically a laurel wreath symbolizes the God’s favor. In the language of flowers the laurel leaf declares achievement. Dragons, naturally, are associated with the element of fire. In our fire-associated wands suit, the dragon represented in this card is symbolic. Dragons were popular in heraldic designs, as they represent courage, leadership, and overcoming obstacles.
This is a victory card symbolizing achievement, recognition, compliments, success, accomplishment, and well-deserved accolades after hard work. You can overcome any obstacle if you work at it. This card can also remind us to hang in there. Times may be tough, but you will get through it and come out victorious if you keep trying.
Keywords: Victory, achievement. Recognition for a job well done. Compliments and success. Accomplishment after hard work.
