The Hermit and Six Of Swords tarot card combination – what does it mean?
The Hermit and the Six Of Swords represents the notion of reflection afore moving on.
Life: Overcoming pain, new beginnings, trusting in your journey ahead
Love: Pausing to heal, moving away from heartache, looking for a new start
Career: Wanting to explore a new path, clearing your mind for a new start
Health: Breaking bad habits, contemplating a healthier way of life, being ready for change
There does come a time where it is healthier to break away from old habits rather than hang onto a painful past. Use your intuition wisely.
The Hermit interpretation
The Hermit pauses when it is necessary.
You have survived a whirlwind and are eager to begin a new era but first, introspection awaits. During a previous time, you acquired spiritual skills previously unknown to you. Now you hold the cards, you must await in solitude for your next move. You do not stand in darkness, using your light as your beacon of hope, radiating in the distorted sky.
Never be fooled that standing still means lack of progression or the inability to push yourself. You are aware that a pause like this creates the energy and contemplation needed to commit yourself to future endeavours that will no doubt see you channelling your focus.
In love, life and career, you consider your next steps. Everything you need is inside you, and when in a reflective state, you can search away from the hustle and bustle of distraction. In your disconnect is where you find and overcome any negative force that battles your current state.
‘I stand alone but I stand tall in the search for myself’ – The Hermit
Six Of Swords interpretation
The Six Of Swords rows away from pain to calmer seas.
There comes a time where you have to move on. Simply put, we cannot stay in the fractured claws of the past holding onto what once was and grieving its demise. I understand fully how hard it is to let go and put this behind you, but in order to move on, we cannot take the baggage of the past with us. The only thing we can do is hold onto the lessons it taught us to provide us with a more promising future.
Instead of using this as an excuse to wallow further, treat it as a transitional time. You don’t need to appear as if you are escaping, you can walk away with your head held high and find clarity in your decision. Think logically about your next step, for you are already heading in that direction even if it feels like you are stagnating.
In love there are ways in which you can progress either together or apart, as long as you are both willing to do so and leave past mistakes firmly where they belong; in the past. You may decide that your work is too stressful for you at this time, and seek other means of employment. You have to do what your mind and body need, not what you feel you should do.
