A Job Well Done
On the RWS six of Wands, a person sits above the crowd on horseback, head held high. Even the horse looks a bit pleased with itself. A laurel wreath hangs from the wand the rider is holding.
Externally, this card is a clear sign of success. Whatever this person has put energy into has produced results, and now it is time to reap the rewards. The focus isn’t on material gain, but on acclaim, praise and prestige. It is not only a personal victory—the people around the rider acknowledge the success.
The internalization of the wand energy is also an important part of this cars significance. Here is a person who values himself. He has high self-esteem and confidence. His accomplishment has reinforced and bolstered those feelings.
This person also takes pride in what they have done. Pride can be a positive thing, part of feeling good about oneself. But too much of it can make a person cocky and arrogant. If there is a slight downside to this card, it is a caution to not let success go to your head. As high as you might be riding right now, remember that tomorrow is another day, and in the eyes of the public you are only as good as your last project, show, or match, for example.
So enjoy the feeling but try to stay grounded.
