Understanding the Tarot - The Meanings of the Cards
The Suit of Cups

Six of Swords

You may take a voyage or trip on a boat or to water in some other way. The rough waters are almost behind you and the results of the struggles will be a better success than imagined.

Six of Swords Reversed

Encouragement is needed to keep from drowning in the rough waters in the present. A confession or looking at the truth of the matter will aid in the successful conclusion of the situation.
