Every time I see this card I can’t help but see a mother and her child escaping abuse. There is a heaviness to this card, with the grey sky, the turned backs, and the huddled up figures. But there is also hope; they’re moving, making process, getting somewhere.
This card is about finding success in motion or change, whether you’re escaping sorrow or seeking harmony, you are taking a journey. This is the action of your self-reflection; the change you know you must create. It’s the hard choice you know you must make if you’re ever going to get where you want to be.
The swords represent intellect and the six often represents advancement or a journey. The six also is the resolution from five, in this case; retreat after conflict; intellectually the best choice, but not the most desired option.
Think about what you need to do to achieve your goals, or keep yourself safe and secure. Are there any hard questions you need to ask yourself? Is there something you know you must do that you’ve been hesitant to approach?
