The 6 of Wands in Love and Relationships

Although this card, in its negative aspect, can indicate the kind of pride that goes before fall and leads to untold pain and suffering in a relationship, it usually means great mutual enjoyment and lots of fun. This 6 corresponds to Jupiter in Leo so, as a couple, you are likely to want to have a good time. You could be planning a great night out, a weekend get-away or even a holiday abroad.

The good times are rolling and sexual chemistry is high. This is definitely one of the cards that indicates that the sap is rising. Make sure that you wear clothes that can handle a bit of rough undressing and doesn’t have too many complicated buttons.

Reversed or ill-dignified, this card could indicate that pride is getting in the way of straight-forward communication. One or both of you could be engaged in psychological patterns of withholding and choosing to shut your hearts down.

However, it can also mean that one of you is suffering with low self-esteem after having been demoted or even laid off at work, which in turn is affecting the relationship. Try to be understanding of your partner if this is the case and don’t take it personally!

To a single person, the 6 of Wands could simply mean that your confidence is high and that you’re enjoying life. Perhaps you have recently been promoted or received other kind of recognition at work. Either way, your confidence levels are currently boosting your pulling power (unless the card is reversed, of course, which could indicate that you need to change your self-talk.)
