The word success whispers itself in her heart, and she knows that this homecoming is going to be special. She knows her people will be here tonight. Her friends. Her family. Her biggest fans. She steps onto the stage and the cheers erupt. They see her. She feels bathed in the energy of the crowd, and they celebrate her and the long battle that she has overcome. She allows all the feelings to bubble up: the gratitude, the joy. ‘Is it finally real?’ She wants to pinch herself in this moment, She hears the echo of the mic as she steps up to it, and she realizes that the being seen is integral to her understanding of her own success.

MESSAGE FROM THE 6 OF WANDS
Something that you’ve been working towards is finally coming to a successful fruition, and it’s time to celebrate your wins, beautiful seer! After giving your energy, stretching your mindset, and building this success lesson-by-lesson, gift yourself permission to bask in the warm glow of accomplishment and relish the sweetness of this victory! It’s time to be honored and to be witnessed, and the supportive community around you will be enthusiastic about your success. Allow them to reflect your own evolution back to you, and accept their appreciation as you mentally process the progress you’ve made. Taking time to see your own radiance and to receive this message wholeheartedly is equally as important as making the next move on your journey. Accepting success will seed more of it. Don’t be afraid to really showcase your skills, and show up to share as an influential leader. Others will be looking to you for more wisdom now. In shadow, this card speaks to the ugly side of being seen or not seen. A marred reputation or a lack of recognition for accomplishments may be blocking the success that is deserved. If you are shying away from public attention and hiding your gifts from the world, you may be energetically blocking a positive outcome in your situation! Seek to share more, but not to the point of needing (or craving!) external validation. Use your own inner compass to define success, as the need for validation can be a self-esteem killer. It may be time to consciously boost your self-confidence and look for ways to feel proud of your own progress, and to be conscious about how highly you place the opinions of others. Remember that no one else in the world has your magic and the most important person to impress is yourself.
