Above all things, know yourself!
Thoth- 6 of Wands-Victory
#6. In all things Great and Small, I see the Beauty of the Divine Expression.
The Tarot Apokalypsis- 6 of Wands
Tree of Life
The Universal Fire Element, created by the vibrational friction of the Divine Creative's shout of "I Will Be" that is moving through non-space, is the ruling element of the suit of Wands. Fire is ardor, as only Spirit/Will can be. Tiphareth the 6th Sephiroth-Beauty, is the home of the 6 of Wands and the 6's of every suit. Hence, they are wonderful cards. This is because Tiphareth is the direct reflection of Kether whose God Name is Eheieh ("I Will Be") and is called the "Son/Sun of God" and is known to us as our Soul/Psyche. Tiphareth is also the heart center of all our psychic bodies and the Rauch /Rational intelligence of the Solar-Self. It rules as the perfectly balanced Sun King who is surrounded by the planets: Binah-Saturn, Chesed-Jupiter, Geburah-Mars, Netzach-Venus, Hod-Mercury, and Yesod-Moon. The Key symbols relating to Tiphareth- Beauty, are:
1) The Cube, which is based on 6, a form taken twice-over in the double cube Altar of Malkuth (Earth).
Adam Kadmon-The Heavenly Human
2.) The 6-sided figure of the Truncated Pyramid (its top is cut off) that represents Adam Khadmon, the Cosmic Archetype Hermaphrodite- and/or the Heavenly Human. Adam Khadmon has many names, the Macrosopus- human or Archetypal/Macrocosmic and/or Universal/Cosmic Human, above him, completing the Pyramid are the Supernal- Sephiroth- Kether, Chokmah and Binah. We are all the Universal Collective Archetype of the Divine Hermaphrodite- Adam Khadmon; However, by traveling down the Tree of Life, getting progressively more condensed, and/or coagulated our psyche seems to be suffering from a type of amnesia. Therefore, the object of Qabalah (Receiving) is to remember ourselves so that we can "receive" our memory of Divine Self and welcome it into our brains while correcting the "mind virus" implanted by the Military Industrial Complex (Patriarchy). The human brain is a copy of the Divine Hermaphrodite intelligence, with its left (male) and right (female) sides and therefore, able to receive these microwave transmissions of Higher Self-knowledge. However, this receiving requires one to know themselves as Divinity and not some indoctrinated slave to words. and mental parasites.
3.) Then, there is the Calvary cross, properly drawn as black and unequally armed, surrounded by a circle, and mounted on three steps. This implies Wisdom through Sacrifice.
The Rose cross and the Rose Cross Lamen, are the other powerful Tiphareth symbols.
In the 6 of Wands, we have a powerful blessing of a marriage of benevolent, boisterous, and generous Jupiter in a powerful Sun ruled Leo. This yells Victory to the Universe. Victory over strife, Victory over the whole damn issue at hand! A Beautiful Melody comprised of the harmony of Spirit-Mind-Body!
Therefore, when the 6's show up, the Soul/ your Solar Self has the issue covered in the best possible, sunny, warm, bright, and beautiful way. Take a deep breath, inhale all the goodness/"god-ness" of your psyche!
Thoth- 6 of Wands-Victory
To illustrate this Victory of Spirit over matter, the 3 Wands of the Golden Dawn Adepts are shown. Here, the lotus wands harmoniously unite the Phoenix heads and the winged-sun disk with the* uraeus snakes/serpents (Life and Death). In 2 groups, these wands cross and form diamond shaped intersections (hermit's lantern) that burn with 9 flames as the expression of the stabilizing and flowing energy of Victorious Spirit. Here is a representation of the Spirit in its highest form of pure Light. Hence, the Spirit of the Divine Creative is expanded (Ace of Wands) with the physical form and reflects the Creator in the bringing forth of the I AM's self- aware creations. The pattern of this card is that of the internal strength that helps us succeed at all levels. Here, one is Victorious over Strife. The 6's are beautiful cards, full of Solar Power and Self Harmony. If you are feeling "out of Sorts", just take any 6 card of any suit and scry it. You'll feel warmth, brightness, and clearing up of the doldrums.
*Uraeus is the stylized, upright form of an Egyptian spitting cobra (asp, serpent, or snake), used as a symbol of sovereignty, royalty, deity, and divine authority in ancient Egypt. The Uraeus is a symbol for the goddess Wadjet, an early Egyptian Goddess, who often was depicted as a cobra. Hence, this symbol is used on the Major Adeptus Wand, to illustrate your divine authority over your life. The Uraeus serpent is often shown in singularity as a cobra on the headdress or crown of a pharaoh. The 6 of Wands acknowledges that the Spirit is the only Pharaoh in your life.
The Tarot Apokalypsis- 6 of Wands
The Tarot Apokalypsis-6 of Wands displays a Female Pharoh sitting on a golden throne with peacock decorations and accompanied by her son. Both are being recognized by the public while being carried on a litter by slaves. Flowers symbolize fertility and fecundity. The 6 Staffs of Amon- Ra are being used as fans and decorated with Ostrich and peacock feathers.
In Egypt, the peacock was linked to the worship of the sun god, Amon-Ra and associated with the all-seeing eye of Horus. To the Hindus, the peacock was associated with Hindra, the god of thunder who became a peacock endowed with one hundred eyes that enabled him to watch out for the demon Ravana. Ostrich feathers related to the goddess Ma'at. The child of Ra and Hathor, Ma'at was the goddess of truth, justice and wisdom and regulated the harmony of earthly things. The feather was her distinctive attribute and often shown being placed on a scale weighing against the human heart on the other side. In ancient Egypt, the human heart was recognized as the vessel of the Soul.
Together all these symbols represent the mental force of the "self-authority" and/or the intellect that the Soul places in our subconscious as the flames of truth, liberty and justice while also leading us to triumph over liars, usurpers, while purifying the Soul, and granting a deep sense of duty that helps us build our inner golden cathedral where the Solar-Self resides. Here that would be our inner golden litter. The Primary meaning of this 6 of wands card is that of being officially recognized success.
Radiant: Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot- Six of Wands
The potential for chaos in the 5 has been quelled, as easily seen on the Rider-Waite-Smith traditional tarot of 6 of Wands, and the aspirant has shown wise leadership, gathering others around in ordered cohesion. Therefore, what is also implied here, if surrounded with negative cards, is the potential for leadership turning into dominance and for the good of all sacrificed to the gratification of one's ego. Therefore, victory is dual of nature. Battle/strife must happen first and then be overcome with victorious effort., while also controlling one's ego.
When the 6 of Wands card is thrown during a reading, it implies:
- One is assured of victory, but victory only comes after a struggle so don't celebrate prematurely.
- There is implied a short-lived mundane victory with all blockages overcome but by trusting the Stability of the Higher Self, the Victory is long lasting.
- Confidence and belief in yourself are the necessary tools here and it looks like they have been achieved with some breakthroughs in insight and creativity happening in the next 6 days or weeks.
- The querent is showing secure knowledge of self-identity and displays self confidence in leadership abilities.
- There is, in the querent, a purposeful sense of direction and purpose.
- Victorious struggle.
- Allowing your will to triumph.
If ill defined by surrounding cards in the layout, it implies:
- Excess of emotion.
- Personality cut.
- Loss of belief.
