Six of Wands – Ignite your fire

Tarot of the Hidden Realm Six of WandsToday’s card is the Six of Wands from the Tarot of The Hidden Realm. Traditionally this is the card of victory and success. Although this card often relates to experiencing a successful completion of a project, today I feel it is more about an internal victory. Sometimes, often without knowing, we lock ourselves in a mental stronghold, which seems impossible to break out of. The only tools to escape we have left are our inner resources, how scarce they may be. When the day comes we begin to feel restricted and imprisoned instead of safe and protected, we will have to ignite a tiny spark of courage inside us and feed it with brave and fiery kindle. It is okay to be afraid, this is in no means a sign of cowardice. Still your mind and nurture your flame so it will grow stronger with each breath you take. This fire inside you will forge the key to freedom. Nothing will be able to hold you back when you tap in to this fire.
And as we can see in this card, fire attracts fire(flies). So our inner fire will keep feeding itself with everything we do and with whatever makes us happy!
“Courage isn’t a lack of fear, it’s being afraid and doing something anyway” (guidebook).

  2. One of my fave cards from this deck. And how wonderful, the image of an ecstatic you after finishing a portrait! Your post brings to mind a wonderful quote by the french writer, Anaïs Nin, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

      Beautiful quote. Being stuck in that bud is a scary place to be. Almost as if Spring never will come again

  4. Sometimes it is just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other, marching on till something changes. Inner or Outer.
