OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Six of Wands

Today’s card is the Six of Wands.

A horseman wearing a laurel and riding a white horse rides with their entourage, carrying a staff with another laurel upon it. The rider and their horse are richly decorated, as well are the footmen on the ground.

The Six of Wands is one of the Minor Arcana cards that can be directly compared to a Major Arcana card; in this case, the Chariot. Both signify triumph and driving action, but the Six of Wands focuses more on the after effects of such events. The Six of Wands emanates a sense of victory and pride. After a successful show of force, one almost always feels prideful and self-confident in themselves. With the Six of Wands, you are being told your time in the sun is coming.

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – King of Wands

Today’s card is the King of Wands.

The King of Wands is on his throne, emblazoned with images of salamanders and lions. He holds his wand and sits upright, his free arm held up slightly with a clenched fist. Standing on the base of his throne is a wild salamander.

The King of Wands is a dark figure, whose magnetic personality makes him the ideal leader. His greatest failing is that he lacks the good humor of the other Wands court cards. Though not without his charms, the King is a somewhat dour figure who prefers to take a more realistic outlook on a situation. Humor is another tool to him, to be used where appropriate. The King of Wands is more focused on the long-term goal, and how he can work with others to achieve it. The King of Wands in a drawing is a sign of letting yourself take the lead, and remembering to stay charismatic.
