I. Analyze and describe 6 of Swords Thoth Tarot
On the card, the six swords folded into a six-pointed star shape (made up of two triangles joined together), symbolizing the intrusion of the invisible and tangible world. The tips of the swords touch the center of the red rose cross, which is also the heart of the cross engraved with the yellow rose made of six squares: the symbol of harmony and the desire to be introspective with the observation from the outside. This external effort (square) to find the truth hidden within (circle) corresponds to the journey of the inherent freedom to all wisdom: the desire for freedom due to the understanding of natural laws within. This card represents the craving for science but also maintains respect for the mysterious laws of life.
II. Interpretation of 6 of Swords Thoth Tarot
Mercury at the Aquarius (6) follows the law of cause and effect in the balance of the 4 of Swords Thoth card, meaning that in addition to the law of cause and effect, there are many processes of analogy. This corresponds to explanations about synchronization and the targeted “coincidence” (C.G Jung), and in terms of idealism, this card represents the relationship between things. Therefore, they are part of the whole, and similarly, each individual is also a united block. Mahmud Shabistari once said: “Each individual is recognized as part of the unified whole and each individual contains a whole world within!”.
This understanding gives us a deep and comprehensive way of thinking, whereby all discord is finally reconciled and the views of each individual are absorbed by the partner. We identify ourselves as those who transmit spiritual messages, carry the new era and important orders and realize the need to let others participate in the process of distillation this knowledge.
The card shows the ability to mediate and connect people and resolve conflicts in the work environment. The new perspective has helped us overcome conflicts and lead us to very creative and unique solutions to problems that seem impossible to solve.
This card represents a stage where the balance between emotional needs and ideas about the soul is optimal. This period was conducive to resolving previous blind issues and building or expanding a harmonious relationship.
