Six of Wands: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
8-10-21 through 8-17-21
The Six of Wands is this week’s Tarotcast card. We’ll be experiencing the successful completion of a project or task this week. This energy is most welcome. It reminds us that whatever obstacles, difficulties or setbacks we’ve endured – we won. Rewards come for our hard work and persistent efforts. We are confident that what we have achieved is repeatable. We can build on this success again and again.
In the Six of Wands, the element of Fire is the steady heat and light that warms and illuminates. Here, the Will in action manifests in perfect balance and harmony.
The Number 6
The sixes of the Minor Arcana restore harmony and balance. The fives cause disruption. They cleanse, regenerate and create conflict in a stable system. Afterward, the sixes bring affirmation, confirmation, validation and solidification.
On the Tree of Life, the Six of Wands card represents the formula 6. Sephiroth or sphere 6, Tiphareth (Beauty). The sphere of the Sun, where energy manifests in a completely balanced way. Within the suit of Wands (Atziluth). This is the Archetypal world. The element of Fire; the Will. Plus, Jupiter in Leo equaling Victory.
The Six of Wands card represents Jupiter in Leo. It rules from 10 to 20 degrees Leo, or August 2nd through August 11th. So, if your birthday falls on or between these dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. Jupiter in Leo is expansive, boisterous, warm and generous. The triumphant power of this card is like that of the noble Lion or Lioness. We claim our rightful place as rulers of our own lives.
In real-time astrology, the Sun continues its transit of Fire-sign Leo. At the beginning of this forecast period, we’re still feeling the effects of the New Moon in Leo. Every New Moon is a perfect time to set new goals and intentions. It’s a clean slate and a chance at a fresh start. Share your unique vision. Create and play.
“Trails of troubles, roads of battles – paths of victory we shall walk…”
Jupiter continues its retrograde transit of Air-sign Aquarius, Leo’s polar opposite sign. Combined with the energy of this week’s card we are open-minded and fair. We may act on behalf of others. Avoid stubbornness. Impulsive acts of rebellion may lead to failure rather than success. We may also get too caught up in thought and fail to act when the time is right.
“Fate unwinds and if we die, souls arise. God, do not seize me please, till victory…”
On August 11 Mercury transits from Leo to Earth-sign Virgo. Mercury is in one of its home signs when in Virgo. This energy is constructive, focused and efficient. Clear communication. Details are the building blocks of effective planning and action.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes being presumptuous. Overstepping others’ boundaries with our assumptions. Avoid the desire to create a personality cult with oneself as the central figure. Unless you do that, success is unlikely. Even if it were, the triumphant optimism that is natural to this week’s energy would be completely lost.
Let’s focus on tackling the week with enthusiasm! Both the giving and receiving of trust and loyalty are keys to our success. Enjoy your successes and victories. Accept the recognition and reward you’ve earned. Stay centered in self-confidence without arrogance.
Power colors: rose pink, violet, and purple for Jupiter as well as deep purple, grey and amber for Leo.
Power stones: ruby, diamond, rose quartz, amethyst, and amber. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to feel optimistic and grounded. Then, celebrate your victories!
Power metals: Leo gold and Jupiter tin. Go for the rose or yellow gold (for obvious reasons)!
Power fragrances: poppy, sage, heliotrope, honeysuckle, hyssop and cedar. These will help you stay confident about victory without arrogance or egotistical self-promotion.
Power foods: foods prepared with anise, cinnamon, clove, mint, nutmeg and sage; or hops (think beer!) All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
