Six of Swords Tarot Card: Upright, Reversed, & Love Meanings

Six of Swords Card Meaning

The Six of Swords in Tarot stands for the blues, recovery, and travel. It represents pushing through a rough sea to reach calmer waters.

Upright Six of Swords Card Meaning

When the Six of Swords is upright in a Tarot reading, it can mean that you might be in a bad place right now, but you are moving toward something better. Things might have been difficult, sad, or depressing, but you are moving to a more positive place and more hopeful conditions. The appearance of the Six of Swords may also indicate recovery, especially if you have experienced rough times. In troubled times, nothing matters at all. You just feel numb and disconnected. As times goes by, you begin to pick up the pieces of your life as you begin to recover. At times, recovery may mean moving to new places. The Six of Swords card also represents travel and moving to new places. This would normally mean a physical relocation, but this may be far from the truth. The travel or move could indicate an inner journey, a journey from one frame of mind to another.

Reversed Six of Swords Card Meaning

When the Six of Swords is reversed in a Tarot reading, it could mean you are pushing back against change and feel that there are things left incomplete. You might feel stuck and unable to move forward.

Six of Swords Card Love Meaning

The Six of Swords in a Tarot love reading is an indication that things are getting better. If you're single, it can mean you need time to heal before jumping into something new. If you're in a relationship, it can mean that even though you've faced difficult times before, things are about to get better. It is a card of healing and moving forward together.
