Six Of Swords – Gilded Tarot Deck
I. Meaning of the Six of Swords Gilded Tarot
On the Six of Swords Gilded Tarot, under the full moon, there is a woman taking a secret and quiet journey along the waterway. Where is she going and what is she leaving behind? Is that important? Will her destination change anything in her life? She carries with her a way of seeing the world, represented by the swords on the ship. As the proverb says, “Wherever you go, you take yourself with you”. The card numbered VI in the Major Arcana, The Lovers Gilded Tarot, is a card that offers balanced choices. By moving on water (her emotions) and carrying the same way of thinking (swords), she is making a choice, but is it a good choice? The toad seems to represent more of a dependence on the mind, where the idea of ”flying away” comes in.
II. Message of the Six of Swords Gilded Tarot
The message of the Six of Swords Gilded Tarot is that you are running away from something. Unless you reconsider the way you think, your escape will achieve nothing but a sense of immediate escape from what is bothering you. Until you learn to deal with it, it will come back under a different guise. Besides, you should beware of the concept of over-analyzing. Our primitive instincts exist as a defense mechanism. While it may not be so often now, there are times when running away from a dangerous situation is the right thing to do.
III. Interpretation of the Six of Swords Gilded Tarot in a spread
The Six of Swords Gilded Tarot is a card that depends a lot on its position on the spread, as well as the surrounding cards to be able to give meaning. This is not a card with a clear message when standing alone, so special attention should be paid to the other cards to interpret the message clearly. In the past position, the Six of Swords indicates a painful time in your life that has directly affected your current situation. Chances are that the past event was not handled properly, and you did not feel you could end it.
