The Sixes In The Tarot Of Quotes

sixes in the tarot of quotesHaving left the upheaval of the Fives behind, we are now moving towards the calmer conditions of the Sixes in the Tarot.

In numerology, the number six is attributed to harmony restored, benevolence and advancement – qualities, which are reflected in all the sixes of the Minor Arcana.

The sixes depict the consequences of the fives; after conflict and loss follows regeneration and growth.

Six of Wands – accomplishment, leadership, victory, recognition

Esoteric Title: The Lord of Victory

Astrological Attribution: Jupiter in Leo – advancement, personal growth, self-development, expanding one’s horizon, confidence, praise

Jupiter is also linked to the Wheel of Fortune, so the Six of Wands may indicate a lucky break.

  1. Leni Riefenstahl? You can’t be serious? Hitler’s favorite movie maker, however talented and charismatic, was a deeply flawed person and a dyed-in-the-wool National Socialist. I don’t think a deck that quotes her has good energy. And to put her with Dietrich Bonhoeffer together, a man who died at the hands of the National Socialists, is bad taste.

    I like your site but I can’t believe you put Leni Riefenstahl on a tarot card…

    1. Thank you for pointing that out. Both Leni Riefenstahl and Dietrich Bonhoeffer are part of my German heritage, which I acknowledge and confront by having chosen these quotes rather than deny. Yes, they both represent the good and evil of my country’s past, and sometimes those ambiguous feelings are still coming through unconsciously.
      When I chose the Riefenstahl quote, it was mainly because it fitted so well with the meaning but also Leo aspect of this card. This is a personal choice and I fully stand by it. Of course Riefenstahl was flawed, and again her egotistical ambitions and subsequent success are reflected in the Six of Wands. She represents the shadow aspect of this card – success at any cost.
      First and foremost, Riefenstahl wanted to be an artist and film maker, and she found herself in the position, in which her talent was taken advantage of by the regime. I’m not making any judgements about people, whose quotes are featured in my deck, just like the Tarot doesn’t judge, merely observe.
      Perhaps I should have chosen more controversial personalities, because that would have reflected the complex facets of human nature more realistically. A Stalin quote for the Devil? No, that would have been too obvious 😉 The printed version of my deck doesn’t come with the quotes, so you can choose your own that are meaningful to you.

Thank you for leaving your comment. I will respond as soon as I can:
