Six of Wands or Batons is a card used in Latin suited playing cards which include tarot decks. It is part of what tarot card readers call the " Minor Arcana" Six of Wands, on divination tarots with illustrated pip cards, displays a laureled horseman bearing a staff adorned with laurel crown. Footmen with staves are at his side.
Tarot cards are used throughout much of
Europe to play tarot card games. [1 ]
English-speaking countries, where the games are largely unknown, Tarot cards came to be utilized primarily for divinatory purposes. [1 ] [2 ]
Rider-Waite symbolism [ edit ]
After the messiness of
the previous card, organization has been reached under leadership of the figure on the horse. The mounted horseman seeming to galvanize the mass, may represent
mobilization, either social or more symbolically of the forces within. The
laurel wreath he wears marks him as a man of success and triumph, competent, honored and confident.
