Card Meaning: Six Of Wands
This card talks about victory, plain and simple. See this person riding
proudly on his white horse with laurel wreath while people cheering him. This is
the image of the champions. This card guarantees that you will achieve what you
have planned but be aware of the lessons from the other cards, especially from
the cards in the Major Arcana. The
Wheel of Fortune tells us that a victor can
easily become a loser and vice versa. Be modest and be righteous.

suspicion, delayed news, fear, dissapointment, anxiety, beaware of the pride.
A laurelled horseman bears one staff adorned with a laurel crown; footmen
with staves are at his side. Divinatory Meanings: The card has been so
designed that it can cover several significations; on the surface, it is a
victor triumphing, but it is also great news, such as might be carried in state
by the King's courier; it is expectation crowned with its own desire, the crown
of hope, and so forth. Reversed: Apprehension, fear, as of a victorious
enemy at the gate; treachery, disloyalty, as of gates being opened to the enemy;
also indefinite delay.
