The Six of Swords – Appearance
On my Six of Swords card, shadowy figures drift from turbulent waters into safer currents. Brightness breaks through cloudy sky and the Castle indicating safe haven can be glimpsed in the distance.
The Six of Swords Tarot Card – Interpretation
After the harrowing experience of the five of swords the six offers relief and allows the seeker to drift towards a more secure phase of their existence. Problems will have been resolved and mental turmoil will have been processed leaving behind a calmer state of mind. This card is a paradox, the inherent difficulty of the suit of swords, combined with the feelings of relief indicated by this card, show an interesting and enlightening period lies ahead. Though the vessel is drifting into safer waters, the final destination indicated by the Castle has not yet been reached, problems are fading away, however, the two-dimensional feeling of the figures in the boat indicate that we are not safe until self-limiting patterns of behaviour are truly left behind. This card indicates residual anxiety surrounds the seeker with regard to all aspects of their life. The future, by its very nature, remains unknown, the cards that surround the Six of Swords in any reading must come under scrupulous interpretation. When this card appears the seeker has surmounted many obstacles, has learned many hard lessons and is ready to accept that the future is set to improve. Outmoded friendships and destructive patterns of behaviour must be left behind in the turbulent waters of the six, a fresh cycle begins with this journey.

My Relationship with The Six of Swords
Whenever the six appears to me personally I recognize the journey, though possibly physical and to quote the cliche often ‘overwater’, frequently indicates a spiritual transition. If this card appears I know to be wary that negative thought patterns may be corrupting my current take on reality. I know that life is a cathartic experience and on this journey we can only move forward, to look back is redundant, we can, and must, only move forward, accepting any fresh obstacles or challenges with open arms. This card always appears as it has today when there is a major shift occurring in my life, when I am moving from one major phase into another. I know when the Six of Swords appears that I have failed to recognise over-exertion and mental challenge that have almost certainly been affecting my judgement. I offer thanks to this and climb aboard the boat of the Six of Swords to take the journey to my undisclosed destination. If the period of indecision is extended I make sure not to drift aimlessly, but take control and steer myself towards the reality that I know I deserve. As I write these words after an extended period of hard work I can feel anticipation drain away, the passage shown in the Six of Swords will, I know, renew my energies and prepare me for whatever fresh challenge life has yet to deal.
The Six of swords, you are moving into safer water, allow yourself to drift away from difficulty.
