Six of Swords
The Six of Swords suggests releasing emotional baggage and being open for transitions. The Six Swords of this Card suggest that even though this family is making good their escape from a distressing situation or environment, there is a danger that they may be bringing their problems with them. You are making an attempt to distance yourself from a situation of stress in order to heal and re-balance. It is a positive indication that you are slowly moving from turbulent seas into calmer waters. Sometimes, we have to reach an all time low before we will take the required action and it is often when we are at our weakest that we find it in ourselves to do what has to be done.
Six of Swords (Reversed)
When the Six of Swords Reverses, restlessness can take over. You may have been plugging up holes in your life or situation, just like the Six Swords in the boat, but now they have begun to spring leaks and water is seeping into your boat. You are trying to distance yourself from your problems and make a fresh start but you do not seem to be making any progress. It’s time to relax and empty your mind. In time, you will realize the direction that you need to go. For now, give yourself some peace. Everything that grows does so in stages, not all at once. Better times are coming if you can just hang on in there.
