The six of wands is the 6th card in the wands suit in tarot and makes up one of the minor arcana. The depiction on the traditional Rider-Waite version of the tarot deck is of a man sitting on a horse and holding a staff high in one hand. The horse seems to be dressed for battle. Behind him stand a crowd of men, each of them carrying a staff as well. Being the six of wands the number of staffs amount to exactly six. The wand carried by the horseman is slightly different than the rest because his is adorned with a wreath on top.
The seven of wands is a card that makes up the minor tarot. It is the seventh in the want suit and is numbered with a 7 as well. In the Rider-Waite deck, which is one of the most highly respected tarot decks, the picture on the card is as follows. It shows a man in somewhat of an attack stance. He holds a wand in his hand as if he is using a double pronged weapon and seems to be using it in defense as he stands atop a hill. Beneath the hill are six staffs that are being thrust upwards toward him.
The eight of wands is an interesting card in terms of its own meanings and how it relates to the other cards in a suit. The depiction of the eight of wands in the Rider-Waite deck is of eight staffs that seem to be flying through the sky. They may have been thrust that way, or are flying of their own accord, but the point is that they are soaring at a relatively fast speed because of the angle that they are at. In the background can be seen a river, some hills and a house or two near the base of the hills.
The nine of wands is of course the ninth in the series of wand cards in the tarot deck. The representation of the graphic on the card shown in the Rider-Waite set is a field of staffs. Eight of the staffs stand straight up pointed at the sky, while the ninth staff is held at a very slight angle still pointing upwards by a man below the staff. The man has a bandage on his head and a look on his face that is wary of danger. He seems to be holding the staff both as support an as a weapon if need be.
The ten of wands is one of the minor arcana and is the tenth card in the wand suit. Tin the Rider-Waite deck, the picture on the card depicts what appears to be a young man hunched over carrying a bundle of sticks. Of course the staffs in his hands all number up to ten. Unlike the other cards in the suit of wands, where the character in the card usually only interacts with one wand in the picture, or in some cases none, this shows the youth trying to carry all of the wands on his own. Despite this, he pushes through and continues with his task.
The page of wands is the 11th card in the wands suit in a deck of tarot cards and is left unnumbered. It is a part of the minor arcana. The picture in the Rider-Waite deck features the character on the card dressed in an ornate yellow robe with roses printed on it. He has a white hat on with a red feather in it and seems to be a kind of explorer. He holds a staff in both of his hands and seems to be inspecting the top part of it very carefully. But what is the significance of this page and what does the card really mean? Continue reading to find out.
