Sword 6, in Animal Tarot reading as well as cyber-Tarot ;-))



6 of Swords
Moving away from turbulence towards calmer times. Your hopes and fears: this card depicts a change. You are swimming in a gamut of feelings that usually accompany change: from the grief of parting with the old, to insecurities, fears, and worries about the unknown, to a certain curious optimism about what is to come. The change indicated does not necessarily mean leaving your existing situation. It could point to an inner step such as entering new areas, learning unfamiliar ways of life, or encountering other cultures and religions. Whether you are excited and curious about the change, or whether you are fearful, is up to you.aA change through which we reach new shores. As a card of parting, it falls between the joyful departure of the hero, as shown by the Chariot (VII) and leavetaking with a heavy heart, which is represented by the 8 of Cups. For this present card, it is very much dependent upon us whether the indicated change makes us excited and curious, or whether we experience it fearfully. In any case, it deals with our reaching new shores and having to leave the old ones, without knowing what is really waiting for us on the other side. In this respect, it shows the grief of parting, insecurities, fears, and worries, but also a certain curiosity and tension about what is to come. This new land that we are approaching does not necessarily mean leaving our existing situation. It could just as well indicate an inner step: entering new areas, learning the unknown rules of the game, unfamiliar ways of life, or encountering other cultures and religions. In the I Ching and mythology, crossing water always means the step from plurality to unity, i.e. it always furthers one to "cross the great water". this

Thank you for your thoughtful comment, rauf; I have blocked all spam from now on, using the word verification thingy, ok? To go back and retrospectively delete all spam would seem too much! ;-P
