Learn the meaning of the Six of Swords Tarot card
On the Six of Swords, we see a rather peaceful scene that depicts a moving boat with three people on board. The boat's course is charted by a guide standing on the boat, looking out over the wide water and the shore in the distance. In front of him on the boat sit two figures covered with a blanket: an adult and a child. Their position, however, does not indicate excitement about the journey, but rather fear of the unknown. The Six of Swords in itself very often indicates experiencing something that is completely new to us. On the card we also see the six swords stuck vertically into the bottom of the sword, but despite their weight, they do not hinder this long sea crossing. However, the Six of Swords very often indicates not only a physical journey like a mental one. The card itself is also associated with the suspension of communication or even the final release from the past. In itself, however, the Six of Swords is a very positive card heralding a time of calm after the events realized in the Five of Swords card. It heralds not only a better tomorrow, but also very often a completely new beginning, also away from the current place of life.
The Six of Swords in an upright position in itself very often heralds a journey that may take place both in the psychic realm and in the real world. In such a situation it will herald a new job, or a new place of residence, which may be somewhere near water, or across the ocean. The card also indicates a lack of communication, which can affect both personal and business relationships. For this reason, events related to the upright Six of Swords may be temporarily on hold, and things themselves may move forward very slowly. The upright Six of Swords can also indicate feelings of fear, anxiety, and even worry as it involves difficult decisions. However, it is important to note that this card is also equated with great intelligence, but also information flow and the internet. Thus, the Six of Swords in an upright position heralds overcoming obstacles and acquiring new skills that will help you achieve your next long-range goals in life. The Six of Swords in an upright position also heralds a new relationship, and its meaning very often relates to affairs between at least two people.
The Six of Swords in an upright position may have a better or worse meaning depending on the context of the matter. In the first case, the upright Six of Swords indicates a new phase in your relationship, which may involve moving house or even a decision to move in together. In the second case, the upright Six of Swords may indicate the suspension of contact or the end of a relationship both on an emotional, friendship or business level. The Six of Swords in the upright position is predicting big changes, but also a period of harmony, peace, and resolution of existing problems in the relationship. It also predicts slow but steady progress in the relationship, and encourages open and honest communication. The upright Six of Swords is a card of planning activities and overcoming the upcoming journey. For single people, the upright Six of Swords predicts a new relationship, as well as the abandonment of existing relationships that are no longer contributing to your life. However, you should treat this card as a good omen, because in the end, regardless of the upcoming events, it will herald new opportunities in your life on the emotional plane. With the Six of Swords in the upright position, expect new friendships also with people from abroad.
The Six of Swords reversed very often indicates the moment when, after a long journey, it is time to reach a port and to find oneself in a new reality. For this reason the reversed Six of Swords foretells a renewal of contact and communication, which may have been problematic. On the other hand, this card may also symbolize a change of plans and destination, or even a blockage that will prevent you from reaching the new world. The Six of Swords reversed is also a time when you may have trouble making decisions, and your plans may be extended considerably. The Six of Swords reversed is a sign of difficulty in overcoming current problems, but it is still possible to reach your goals. Even in the reversed position the Six of Swords is not a sign of negative events, but of obstacles or delays in your path. If this is the case for you, consider going back over unresolved issues or past decisions to some degree. When you do then don't resist change because it is necessary and inevitable for you.
In questions about love, the Six of Swords reversed does not indicate an outbreak of passion or great affection, but it may predict an improvement in your relationship under certain circumstances. The Six of Swords reversed is a symbol of a journey that, though it may encounter obstacles, may ultimately lead to the birth of something new in your relationship. However, it is very common that with this card there are some problems or unresolved issues in the past that may hinder you from starting a new phase in your love life. For this reason, the reversed Six of Swords indicates that you should leave everything behind and embark on a new shore with a new plan. On the reversed Six of Swords we see both a man and a woman as well as a child, therefore it can very often point to issues related to your offspring. The Six of Swords reversed is also a card to return to a past relationship even if it may have been negative or even toxic to you. The Six of Swords reversed relates primarily to fear which may be preventing you from meeting new people. For this reason for single people the reversed Six of Swords portends stagnation and delay in emotional matters.
