The Tower and Six of Swords cards together – what do they mean?
The Tower and the Six of Swords come to you at a time where you have coped well with a significant upheaval in your life.
Life: Feeling weak, huge change, walking away from negativity
Love: Leaving a toxic partner, bravery, putting yourself first
Career: Changing jobs to a less stressed pace, admitting you are in the wrong job, seeking a different career
Health: Giving up bad habits, finding healthier ways to live, new hobby such as meditation or jogging
They seem as though they are mourning an old way, but instead they celebrate your strength of moving on from what no longer serves you.
The Tower Interpretation
The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.
There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.
If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.
Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.
‘You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower
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.
