6 of Wands as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: Enjoy the feeling of success today. You earned it.


Doesn’t it feel good to win? Especially when that win took time and effort? There is a competitive edge to this card & traditional imagery suggests combat. This can relate to battles of all kinds – legal, personal, party political – you name it, it’s covered.

On a personal level though, whatever you’ve been battling, know that the tables have turned, a shift has occurred and victory is yours. Think of this card as one small step in a sequence of many. Today you won – yay! Tomorrow brings a new challenge, and the day after that and so on.

Allow yourself to savour the moment though and if it was a big win, you’ve earned the right to party. Get down and groove.

Let us also ask the question: what is winning to you? If you watch The Call to Courage by Brene Brown, you will learn that sometimes just showing up when you know you cannot win the race means you’ve won. This is a very personal way to look at it but in the microcosm of our life, just facing something seemingly insurmountable is winning. Showing up is winning. It’s a personal victory, not an external one but one that is surely more worthy.
