The “Which tarot cards indicate” feature is designed to increase your tarot vocabulary and help build a strong database of tarot card meanings.
These cards might indicate success:
The Sun – The Sun is my favorite card in the deck, hands down. It’s always a good omen to see, especially in an outcome card. It indicates optimism, positivity, abundance, joy and success. In my opinion, this card is the best one to see when inquiring about the success of an endeavor.
The World – The World represents completion, spiritual graduation, the successful achievement of a goal. Next to the Sun, this is my other top card to represent success.
The Chariot – While the Chariot can indicate a journey ahead, it can also represent a triumph, making it another favorable success card. The energy of this card can represent: willfully moving towards the finish line, victory ahead.
The Wands have it: there are a few cards in the Wands suit that I think symbolize success.
Two of Wands – Here, the figure stands safely in a fortress, the world right in the palm of his hands. This card indicates success and being in a “good place” for the next step.
Three of Wands – This image has three ships sailing in on the horizon – a symbol of success on the horizon.
Four of Wands – Like the Sun, this card always creates a happy vibe when it shows up in a tarot reading. This is the card of celebration – which could be the ceremony ahead as you cross the finish line.
Six of Wands – I always interpret this as “stepping into the winner’s circle” and the “crowning achievement” card. It’s success after battle and the rewards for a job well done.
Nine of Pentacles – This card shows a woman enjoying the fruits of her labor. This symbolizes reaching material and emotional success.
Special note: These two Tens can also represent happy endings and successful achievements: Ten of Cups and Ten of Pentacles. Also, Kings can represent mastery of a situation – seeing one as an outcome would be a strong indicator of success.
