Quite often when the Six of Swords appears, there have been some difficulties that the querent has had to come face to face with. However, the Six implies that movement is now needed and that the time has now come to move away from memories of the past, and although it may be difficult at first, clarity will soon come.
The Six of Swords can also indicate travel, for example a long journey or a holiday, which will usually be across water. It could even indicate a house move near a scenery with water.
If this card connects with your personal life then it could indicate an “in between” period where you are deciding whether or not you should stay or go. Quite often this card will predict a time of clarity for the individual after a breakup. In other cases this card will illustrate the bigger picture, in the sense that the querent can now see something that they couldn’t before. So on the whole this will be a time for recovery.
If this card applies to a work or financial situation then good news is on its way. It will usually speak about new beginnings and positive movements forwards, maybe even a movement abroad with work, or it could be that the querent will have to take on more travel as far as work goes. The Six of Swords always encourages you to move forwards as best you can, even if you don’t feel ready for it. You can rest assured that happier times lie ahead and that the storm is now over.
Should this card be reversed then it could point towards an overload of information, asking you to take time out to think and clear your mind. Quite often the person in question will have so many ideas that it can be hard for them to find an outlet or a focus. They may also be finding long distance hard or finding it hard to travel or move forwards themselves. The message of this reversal suggests that you will need to leave something behind in life in order for it to work, so take time to reflect and think things through, a call of bravery is needed! But you will be better off in the long run.
