Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 6 of Wands: VICTORY & The B.O.T.A. Tarot- 6 of Wands

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth 6 of Wands: Victory &The sixes of the Hermetic Qabalah as compared with the B.O.T.A. Tarot:

The 6 of Wands is a joyful card, expansive and warm, an symbol of deep personal creative power, Self confidence, balanced leadership and joy, only because a exhaustive battle was won.

Were the fours were closed and guarded, that was broken up by the martial nature of the five and the resulting marriage has resulted in self-supporting, stabilization, reception and reflection; Marriage, because the established conformity of the 4 is broken up by the battle frustration and anxiety of the 5; However,  the creative union of 4's and 5's results in a dynamic motion of creative power that results in a personal victory of empowerment.
Therefore,the Thoth 6 of Wands shows 6 wands, forming a stable pattern of diamonds and nine flames. The flames are all burning brightly , suggesting the sun-lantern of The Hermit Tarot card. Here, the Solar Soul is mighty in its victory over difficulty.
  1. The lotus wand represents a spiritual victory that provides us with a win-win situation rather than a win-lose one.
  2. The Ibis Headed Wand, is a symbol of a victory that provides us with new creative energy flow and revitalization.
  3. Win-win victory supplies us with clarity of vision and creative expression which is represented by the Winged Eye of Horus wand, whose serpents represent the regenerative power of such a victory.

The 6 of Wands represents a powerful energy/spiritual victory that is represented on all four states of consciousness  (represented by the four central diamonds): Super-conscious (Whole Psyche), Subconscious, conscious and the self-conscious of personality.

Therefore, the Victory is that You are in the
Know and the Flow and have the Three wands of mastery on both the visible and invisible (both sides of the mirror) and are walking on the rare path of Spiritual, Mental and Physical union towards one vision. Astrologically, this is  Jupiter in Leo stating that victory such as this, is expansive and fluid (Jupiter) and highly creative (Leo). We feel good !

The Key symbols relating to Tiphareth, Beauty;

  1) The Cube, which is based on 6, a form taken twice-over in the double cubed Altar of Malkuth.
2.) The Six-sided figure of the Truncated Pyramid (its top is cut off) that represents Adam Khadmon, the Ascended Man, and the six lower Sephiroth. Adam Khadmon is the ascended man or Archetypal Human, i.e. the complete manifestation of the DNA inherited from the "gods" and/or the Annunaki (Sumerian for" those who from the sky came"); above him, completing the Pyramid are the Supernal, Kether, Chokmah and Binah.

Then, there is the Calvary Cross, properly drawn as black, unequal 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. 

THE SIXES, represent definite accomplishment and carrying out of a matter.

Victory and/ or Success with the result of effort, is the underlying current of all sixes. In the World of Primal energy, Atziluth, this means Victory.  Where as in Briah, the Creative World of Pleasure, happiness is a direct result of working for it. In the world of quarreling and Strife, Yetzirah, strife brings success. While, in Assiah, the world of business, and commerce among men, this means material success.

THE 6 OF WANDS-VICTORY, is the Lord of Victory.
Here Jupiter is in Leo, and the Angels of the Decan are: Nelokhiel and Yeyayel.
In the Six of Wands, we have the benevolence of Jupiter in the Fiery Sign of Leo (Sun) which brings success and warm relationships.  However, it is an aspect that suggest some drama and of victory after great effort.

The Crowley ( Lady Freda Harris was the artist) Thoth card, shows the Wands of the Three Adepts (of Golden Dawn ritual) crossed in a perfect balance of power. As each Adept must go through initiations involving varying degrees of Strife, this card of Wands, suggests victory after strife. 
It is to be noted, that the upright Flames, lantern like at each crossing, are in a number of  9; the number of Yesod and the Moon, the Key 9-The Hermit, as well as the marriage of the 4 and 5. This shows energy stabilization of the One Energy, and its reception and reflection by the Feminine Magnetic Principle. Hence, there is no circle around it, because it is self-supporting like the Sun.

To a Qabalist of the Hermetic Qabalah, this card represents Tiphareth (Beauty) in Atziluth [the Pure Spirit World] and brings success and warm relationships after struggle.

The sixes are a breath of fresh air, as our spirit has brought us out of the chaos of the fives ; a chaos represent as contested strife. Tiphareth is a Solar Beauty, and Beauty is synchronicity, a willed weaving of frequency that brings balance from strife.  This card also suggests a certain amount of drama before victory is achieved and/or a certain amount of discord before harmony is reached.

The Thoth Tarot, depicts the crossed Golden Dawn wands of the three Adepts, showing a balanced weaving of the complete energy of Fire. This is a joy-filled moment that is emblematic of personal creative power.

Therefore the Six of Wands symbolizes, victory, self-confidence, balance, leadership and glory----all gained after a struggle with one's own subconscious-demons (fear based imagination). Most of us know that failure in itself, stops no one; it is only fear of failure that stops us from creating. For instance, humankind wouldn't be flying from country to country, even into space, if the pioneers of flight had listened to the fear mongers, who stated that heavier than air vehicles would never fly...."not in a million years" as one noted scientist stated. Therefore, to achieve Victory over the "error of survival thinking" we must be in the spiritual harmony of the Six of Wands, which is being secure with our identity and possessing a sense of purpose and/or direction.

ABOVE ALL THINGS, KNOW THYSELF, truly means that we must know we are gods of the "little g" variety [selves and/or "demiurges" of the Divine Self] of our own destiny.  Hence to serve fear in a foundation capacity, is to have no destiny at all!  So Above all things, know thyself ; know not that ye are gods. Is the whole description of the Real You. Your name is I AM....anything after that is "your destiny", i.e. "Me".  Yes "me" is your destiny, for as we perceive ourselves, we perceive life!

Hence, Victory over the strife of self-defeating indoctrinated thoughts that are cultural "brain software", is a Spiritual Victory over individual entropy. Cultural software is flawed for as we all know, those who fear inferiority must act superior and that means they must get others to accept inferiority, by force or deception, as their identity, in order to reign. After all, the term Ruler, means "Those who enforce definition"; we also call them "law makers".
Therefore the Spiritual Identity of You, cannot be defined by any person, state, religion, nor psychology. It is not man-made, as all word definition is! Our indoctrinated thoughts are the Trickster/Devil within, and they must not be accepted as truth. Knowledge is not thought, nor words for it is the deed of creation. That is why the most intuitive people (sensitives or psychics) release thought and allow the knowledge that constructed them to flow through into expression.

The Victory so beautifully depict by the Six of Wands, is one when we know that I AM Me...is a deed of spiritual- being and not a definition belonging to anyone or other environment outside of our own head. To those who know themselves, knowing that they are the Force (spirit)that Operates Their Form is not a process of thought but a process of self-trust; trust in existence. 

"I Am the Spirit that owns and operates this body as an expression of creativity called Me!" The Word Me, is destiny, and that means probability where all things are possible, and not ever subjected to the pressure of peers! Victory over your definitions may be hard to grasp...but once you do there is no question of your inherited Divinity!

As stated: Tiphareth of the Suit of Fire, is represented by the 6 of Wands Tarot card. Tiphareth is the "Sun/Son of God" center on the Tree of Life. It is our original Soul Personality. We are all individual microwave frequencies of Solar Spiral energy, better known to some as Spirit.  The Six of Wands represents  energy in a completely balanced expression and/or harmony. Again, the zodiacal reference is also to Jupiter and Leo, and as Crowley has stated in his Book of Thoth,"which seems to imply  a benediction on the harmony and beauty of this arrangement".

This bares repeating: The Three Wands of the Adepts are now an ordered arrangement and the flames are now lamps instead of shooting out in all directions like they do in the 5 of Wands. The lamps are nine in number referring to Yesod and the Moon, and the Key 9 of the Major Arcana, showing the stabilization of the Male-electric Energy and its reception and reflection by the Magnetic Feminine aspect of Energy.
The thing to remember with Victory, is that a battle first must be fought in order for there to be a victory. It can be internal battles of spirit and mind, of emotions and soul or outward battles of industry and labor overcoming strife. But a battle must be fought before victory. When all our Mind, Body and  Emotions are balanced for one goal---we will achieve victory.
The B.O.T.A. Tarot-6 of Wands:
 depicts six wands in what seems like two separated triangles. One above and below. However, one may note that on the illustrated Qabalistic Tree of Life, The 6th Sephira, Tiphareth forms the point of the triangle in the second Triangle of the tree.

Therefore, in a very subtle way, is depicted the Victory of the "Son of God" (The Christ or Buddha consciousness) in achieving creative manifestation.
The Wands are in the colors of fire-red and the Sun-gold. Depicting the element of fire of the Hermetic Qabalah.

When the 6 of Wands card is thrown during a Tarot reading:

  •  For a period of six weeks or six months, there has or will be victory after strife. 
  • Gain and success through energy and industry.
  •  Pleasure gained by labor, carefulness, sociability, avoidance of strife with victory therein.
  • In the next 6 weeks or 6 months, the opportunity for victory will be  either an opportunity to achieve a victory with the Leo people in your life or to experience a personal win-win victory of your own.
  •  As the 4 of Wands is Completion, a stasis of movement, and 5 of wands is Strife, an unbalancing, their union becomes a continuation of motion that produces Victory, with is a new motion, a new vision, and a new journey that self renewal demands of us "Living Makers".
  • It pays to remember that the body is your power tool and your are the artisan that "Makes" with that physical miracle device!
  • Is assured of victory, but victory only comes after a struggle. so don't celebrate prematurely.
  • There is implied a short lived 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 major breakthrough in insight and creativity happening in the next 6 weeks or 6 months.
  • 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

If ill dignified by the accompanying cards, the 6 of Wands can also mean insolence, pride of riches and success.
