Six of Swords Tarot Card Meaning
Journey • Companion • Peace
The Six of Swords represents the beginning of relief, an escape from hard times. In numerology, the number 6 stands for restoration of harmony and balance. The suit of swords is about thoughts and spirituality. This card usually signifies the beginning of an important exploratory journey, sometimes over water. You may be bringing someone else. The journey is not complete yet, but you are on your way to freedom.
The Six of Swords can signify a need to move forward, perhaps to recover from unwise decisions you have made. Because this is a journey of growth, you must leave something behind. Don’t be afraid to let go of what’s holding you to this moment. You are about to renew your life. You are headed towards a better position. Do not dwell, and remember what you have endured to get to this point.
Six of Swords Reversed
Depression • Melancholy • Inability
There is a melancholy energy associated with the Six of Swords, so while for some it can mean harmony and stillness, when it is reversed it can mean depression. These may be the days when you almost can’t get out of bed. There is a listlessness and lack of motivation.
This card reversed can suggest you are resisting the necessary situation in front of you. Perhaps you feel it has been forced on you and you want no part of it. This card reversed indicates that this is a negative approach when it comes to your health. To recover, you must take responsibility for the current situation and get something out of it.
