THE SIX OF WANDS, LORD OF VICTORY

Jupiter in Leo, Sun in Tiphareth

   Your ally has won a great battle. His wand and his head are both adorned with victory wreaths. In his moment of glory, your ally is feeling the influences of The Sun and Jupiter in Leo. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality, the Leo type is a monarch, in attitude at least. Leo types are ambitious, courageous, dominant, strong willed, positive, independent, and self-confident. These qualities are beneficial in many arenas, of course, but in terms of the Tree of Life, your ally is on the level of spiritual will (the suit of Wands) in the sixth sphere known as Tiphareth, or Beauty. Together with the expansiveness and abundance characteristic of Jupiter, the qualities of Leo are beneficial on the spiritual level in the process known as the Great Work--the transformation from the lower personality to the Higher Self. The unsung inner work of regeneration is often difficult and misunderstood and lonely like no external battle could ever be, but the transformation does result in a victory for both the individual and the community, for when one person wins through to a knowledge of the harmony and light of the Higher Self, then others in the community, because of our basic connection at the spiritual level, find it easier to win through to higher knowledge.
