Six of Wands Description and Symbolism


A man is riding a white horse while the crowd of people walking next to him cheer him on. The man holds the highest wand while the rest of the wands are being held by the adoring fans. The man’s wand is crowned with a laurel wreath tied with a red bow. He is certainly victorious for even his head is adorned with a laurel wreath.

Exoterically, his white horse is symbolic of purity and virtue. White horses pop up in fairy tales, conjuring ideas about knights in shining armor. Perhaps a knight on a quest who is honoring the age-old system of questing for fame, glory and the crown. The main and usually ‘pure’ character on screen is usually the one who is riding a white horse. The shadow side of this is found esoterically….

Esoterically, white horses represent the cyclic journey of life and death. More clarification can be made when compared the Six of Wands with RWS Death card. Anything exoteric requires each individual to look beyond superficial meaning and meditate on a deeper meaning from subconscious clues that are embedded deep within our culture and yet, outside of it too.

The horse is covered with an exaggerated green blanket, so that only the horse’s head is visible. There is an element of excess and extravagance due to the all-encompassing blanket. This might be a subtle warning not to be so prideful and look at the situation clearly.

The Six of Wands has a dual meaning. The hero riding on the white horse cannot be a hero without the adoration from the crowd. If there isn’t a crowd, then he’s just a simple man on a horse.  Which one are you? Are you the person on the horse or are you one of the people in the crowd?
