The Six of Swords is about journeys of all kinds. This could mean taking a trip somewhere, or it could call for a change of consciousness, a passage from one level of understanding to another. This card may also be about exploring the realms on the other side of day, through dreams or other kinds of shamanic work. The time has come to leave old pain, places, and patterns behind. Even if you think you’re not ready, action of some kind is essential. You know the steps you need to take to leave a difficult or dangerous situation for the tranquil shores of a more nurturing life. Whatever path you choose, trust your inner compass to guide you. Though the future is uncertain, the hardest part may be getting over your fear of moving into unknown territory. A safe port could be closer than you think.
