If you are in a partnership, the Six of Wands can symbolize that you admire your partner and are proud of them, or vice versa. It could also indicate that you look up to them and that you are a team – you feel you both are growing something together that you can be proud of.
Another interpretation of the card is that one person in the relationship tends to take the lead while the other is supported and this dynamic works well. This is symbolized by the man riding the horse and the person in the background following. If you are working toward something in a relationship together such as moving in together or buying a home, your goals could be close to coming to fruition.
If your relationship has been going through a rough patch, the Six of Wands can symbolize better days are on the horizon. The effort you have been pouring into your partnership is making a difference.
If you are single and looking for love, you may be a magnet to others because you are exuding self-confidence and are taking great pride in your appearance. Success is coming your way. Others are finding you attractive and are drawn to your energy.
The Six of Wands suggests you may be about to meet someone strong, confident, and uplifting. This person will help push you into the best version of yourself.
Reversed Six of Wands Love Meaning
Pulling the Six of Wands in reverse could indicate that you are feeling unloved and unappreciated in your relationship. You may not be feeling confident in yourself so this tarot card in the reverse can imply that you are attracting partners who treat you in reflection to how you feel about yourself.
Since the Reversed Six of Wands deals with feelings of disappointment and failure, in a love reading this could mean that your relationship is falling apart. One person might be too proud to apologize for hurting another or one person could be acting selfishly. They may be only concerned with their own interests and unwilling to work together on the connection.
If you are single and looking for love, you may feel looked over and that all the potential partners you meet cannot give you the love and attention you seek. Avoid being bitter and switch your attitude to being more positive and having less expectations of others. Instead, focus on giving yourself the love you deserve.
Six of Wands as Feelings
If you are asking how someone feels about you, the Six of Wands can indicate they admire you. They might be impressed by you or put you on a pedestal. They may feel a sense of pride having you on their arm as you make them feel special and admired.
In some situations, the Six of Wands could indicate that they have a lot of pride and may not convey their emotions toward you. If you have had a fight, they may not be inclined to reach out and rectify as their pride prevents them from apologizing.
