Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot is a card that implies recovery from difficult times. Hope is coming to you, things will get better. It is important that you rest, revive, and surround yourself with the joy that comes from your friends. You can plan a trip, either short or long, even leaving the city for the weekend can lift your spirits.
The six swords are in a pile at the bottom of the card. The scene seems dark and dreary at first and the tiny swords in the middle looks like a heavy rain. There are some difficulties now, but an arched rainbow overhead and a clear blue sky await the other side. When we consider Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot as the successor to the Five of Swords, a coherent story emerges. Five shows a picture of hostilities and battle while Six shows the aftermath. The healing process has begun, but there is still much work to be done on the road to recovery.
There are times when you are surviving longer than you are actually growing, and the Six of Swords is representative of those times. Stressful events can leave you reeling even after the actual event has passed. It is natural to need some space to rearrange oneself in such cases. Note that the swords here are giving themselves that healing ability. Instead of forcing yourself to just “get over” things, sometimes you need to just let yourself lie there in metaphors for a while! It is inevitable that you will eventually move from where you see it now and towards your own personal rainbow. Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot asks you to be patient with yourself as you navigate this bidding process.
II. The message of Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in a reading
Decks based on the Waite-Smith divination tradition often depict this card by showing figures of people gathered in a boat. One man rows the boat while two others huddle together and wear tight robes. The boat carries them forward but also gives them a chance to rest and recuperate. Soon they will reach new shores, but for now, they are still a bit reeling.
Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot is usually less related to major traumas and more to the micro struggles that affect us on a daily basis.

Sometimes the best thing you can do on such occasions is trust that you are moving towards a more holistic realization.
You don’t need to rush yourself, but you also don’t need to focus on difficulties. Find ways to broaden your perspective of your experience. You are not always in the middle of this place, you are getting closer to the new land that awaits you.

Similarly, Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position asks you to reflect on any emotional or mental baggage you may be carrying when moving from one stage to the next.

IV. Meaning of Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the reversed position
The reversed Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot suggests that you are trying to change and accept the challenge. This is a good signal for opportunities to appear. On the other hand, the card indicates that you are resisting the transformation of life. The changes are not what you want. The advice of the card is to think about things in a positive way. Instead of resisting change and wallowing in pain, you should get out on your own. What you need to do now is to move forward, not look back. If you keep looking backward, you will fail.
When the reversed Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot appears in a Tarot reading, you may be going through a personal/spiritual transition or a transference ritual so that you can let go of relationships, beliefs, or behavioral patterns that no longer serve you. This is a strongly personal journey, and you are working on your own to make it happen. You have determined what you must release to embrace a new way of thinking and are now making it a reality in your personal life.
Sometimes, the Six of Swords in reverse indicates that you know you need to make a change or transformation in your life but are reluctant to do so. You can hope that the problem will go away on its own and you will not have to agonize over this difficult decision. Or you can try to fool yourself into thinking you can handle it, even if you know deep in your heart it is time to move on. It is natural to want to avoid discomfort, but sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone in order to grow as a fully capable person. That discomfort can be a positive sign that growth is happening, so feel that energy and let it encourage you to keep moving forward and expanding yourself.
In some cases, the reversed Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot shows that you are resisting change and transformation because you believe it was forced on you or you were not included in the decision. For example, your partner may have to move for work and you have to go with him or her. It is important that you focus on the benefits of the transition rather than the drawbacks. Where can you expect something and get personal value from it? Reaffirm yourself why you need to make this transition and how it aligns with your own values.
If you are trying to move on from the past but are still trying to do so, the reversed Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot suggests that there may be unfinished business, unresolved conflicts, or lessons that you need to understand before you can wholeheartedly move forward in life. What is holding you back from making this important transition? Find ways to solve those problems. There may be times when you doubt whether you are making the right decision by leaving the past behind, but this card gently encourages you to move forward, reminding you that the rainbow is waiting for you on the other side of the rain.
The Six of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position indicates that you are trying to escape from the past and make an important transition. However, with this card in reverse, it is clear that you are having some challenges walking away and the past is always clinging to you. You have many things to leave behind but they always haunt your mind, making you unable to go to new lands. Or sometimes, you doubt your decision. However, the Six of Swords encourages you to rest assured about your choice.
Alternatively, you may be resisting this necessary transition. You may feel that you are not willing to make decisions and are forced by circumstances or other people. It is important to consider the benefits that you will gain rather than focusing on the limitations that you are experiencing. In a relationship reading, if the issue is a relatively new relationship, the Six of Swords in reverse indicates that you have not been able to let go of past connections and are burdened. You need to try to forget everything if you don’t want those unhappy memories to ruin the relationships you have now and will have in the future.
