Weekly Tarot 04/29-05/05 6 of Swords
6 of Swords
This is a brand new deck for me. I really like it's interpetation on the traditional Rider Waite, the colors and art really appeal to me. Let's see how it reads.
The couple in the boat look ravaged and tired. They've been through the wringer and whatever is waiting on the other side of the river has got to be better than what they've already been through. They are leaving the rough seas behind them and it looks like clear sailing ahead. Sixes always represent a state of balance, harmony, and the suite of Swords is concerned with our mental state. There's been a great deal of mental stress, tension and quite possibly even depression for these folks, but now they are at last free to move beyond that, releasing the negativity.
Look for situtations that have appeared stagnant and insurmountable to break loose this week. There'll be movement toward a better, more secure future. You'll not want to completely forget your past lessons ( you don't want to repeat them!) but you no longer are tied to them. Very possibly, this transition has forced you to leave something behind that you once valued, but you will find that you don't miss it. Something is changing in your world for the better. This could be something as simple as rearranging your furniture for a new look or it could literally involved moving or taking a trip. Don't get too bogged down in the packing.
