Today’s card is the Six of Wands. Sometimes called Rods or Staves, it represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking. The Six of this suit points to the respect and acknowledgment due to you for your efforts to solve the problems of your community. The image is usually of a victory parade, after the celebrated leader helped troops win a pivotal battle. It took the whole tribe to win the victory, of course, but it was the leader’s heroism and clarity under pressure that inspired them to overcome. The team is thrilled that the leader led them to victory. This card points to a time to let everyone relax and celebrate. If you are the leader, let them applaud you. They are seeing their better selves reflected in you; this is a victory indeed!
Fearlessly act on your convictions and others will be inspired to support your ideals. The Six of Wands advises you to take action on your most burning and passionate convictions, no matter what the social consequences. Continue to articulate and define yourself in the light of the torch you are carrying. Since this is the suit of creativity, this will inspire others to conceive some new ideas of their own. You may also find yourself becoming something of a leader. Usually the first person to break away from conventional thought is the one to define a new trend. Under the circumstances, there is a solid need for a fresh voice and vision — so make your move. Those around you who are ready for change will support your leadership.
Now is the time for you to step into your truth and strength. Those of us who serve Spirit are on the leading edge of mankind because we have already been called into the light. But now is the time of the awakening, the Age of Aquarius, and many are just beginning to hear the call of the Divine. We are being urged to step forward with courage and passion, to act as an example for those who would join us on this amazing journey. Only good can come from our leadership as we walk the path of the Universal Truth. Go forward with love and intention and you will be supported by those who value your vision.
Today, may you claim your role as leader and let your inner light shine!
