Six of Wands Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawing, the Six of Wands may come up upright, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t.
Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic reader conducts their readings, because a Tarot Card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
Merging the qualities of number “Six” and the qualities of the “Wands Suit,” the Six of Wands card would represent:
|Being triumphant||Taking home the prize, the award|
|Being complimented and recognized for your skills||Being carried away by pride or arrogance|
|Being worthy of notice, in the spotlight||Knowing yourself and your abilities|
In a reverse position, the Six of Wands would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Losing||Being at a disadvantage|
|Broken promises||Unsuccessful journey|
|Betrayal by the one you trust||Too pride to see you’re falling|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If the Six of Wands would sit in a horizontal position, it means you will have to check your pride.

Maybe your partner needs some help around the house, or they need you to take on another job so you can cover financial responsibilities for some time.

Sure, they can stand up for themselves, but they also need you to do that sometimes. Show your loyalty.

If you pull the Six of Wands, reversed, it means you and your partner are not finding common ground. They may even see you as someone to not be trusted, or your partner may have betrayed your trust in some way, not necessarily cheating, but for example, not keeping the promise to keep that secret you told them. The ego may be getting in the way, and may even mean that you don’t see each other as reliable anymore.

What not to do?
It advises you to put your ego aside. You may have become too full of yourself, but you still need to perfect your skills. In a business setting, the Six of Wands advises you not to fool yourself into being the one that makes it all work. Not only is your ego blinding you, but you may not be at the position you want yet.

Reverse Position (Business and Finance)
If Six of Wands comes out reversed, you may have just failed, or you are about to fail badly. This does not necessarily mean it will be your fault, but you will lose your credibility. Suddenly, you may find yourself at a disadvantage, either caused by you or by someone that betrayed your trust. Don’t let your pride get in the way, but work on getting back at the top.
Six of Wands – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull the Six of Wands, this would mean that whatever you desire or wonder about will manifest pretty soon. How soon is that? It would be kind of complicated because it would mean springtime, of a Zodiac Sign season Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
It would also be counted in days or months, which would mean one month later, or around the 6th, 15h, 24th of the upcoming month.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming pretty soon. From there, you would figure out the time. For example, if it is summertime when you are doing the reading, it would not indicate that your desire will manifest in spring. The highest possibility is that it would manifest during Leo Season or the upcoming month.
Other times that is much easier than that because you are pulling the number “Six” it would mean in 6 days, in 6 weeks, or 6 months. In Tarot or any other divination works, it is rare to foretell the future in years because the choices we make along the way alter that future a lot.
