The Six of Wands
Six of Wands

Card Nicknames: The victory card, the satisfaction card, the fulfillment card, the accomplishment card, the success card, the good news card.

Short meaning: The Six of Wands represents a positive and fulfilling success or victory.

Full meaning: While several cards of the Tarot can represent a type of victory, for example the motion and destiny of the Chariot, the sudden and complete victory of the Ace of Swords, or the ambiguous win of the Five of Swords, this card represents a positive and fulfilling sort of success.

Arrien (see Sources) describes it as "...the experience of a deep victory or win that touches you at an intuitive and spiritual level." (p. 182)

Kettlewell's divinatory summary is "Victory, fulfillment, great news, " with a longer explanation of "...the arrival of great news, and the complete fulfillment of hopes and wishes." (p. 122)

Hansson desribes a few of the card's meanings, among others, as "Victory after a struggle. Triumph. Good news. Winnings. Diplomacy." (p. 123)
