The six of wands shows a single figure seated on a horse and holding an upright wand with a victory wreath attached. The figure on horseback also wears a victory wreath on his head while his comrades walk alongside their leader carrying five more upright wands between them. Whether you are male or female, if this card appears in your reading, you are the figure on horseback, and it’s time to follow the guidance given to maintain your role as leader in the best and highest way.
Whatever the victory is that is being celebrated, you must acknowledge that it is due to a group effort, not just the actions of any single individual. While it is pleasant and exciting to be the one honored on horseback, it is time to share the glory, get off the horse, and let someone else ride for a while while you walk on equal footing with your comrades. It is entirely possible that by giving someone else the opportunity to share your perspective, you may experience increased support and participation from the group.
Your awareness of and participation in your peer group is vital. This is leadership of the people, by the people, and for the people. Like the other sixes, it refers back to the Lovers, and emphasizes that the commitment to participate in this relationship is far more important than a commitment to any one individual.
