Long-term Potential: Six of Swords
Acknowledge that your intellectual and intuitive gifts are
among your most valuable assets.
The card in the Long-term Potential position points to
unknowns still taking shape. It is the "wild card" yet to be
With the Six of Swords in this position, the potential is to
realize, possibly for the first time, that you have a very
sharp mind coupled with a high degree of intuitive sensitivity.
The combination may even approach a special streak of
genius that is a scarce resource in your community or
workplace. You have taken this acuity for granted, yet it's
one of your most valuable attributes.
Look for situations where quick assessment and good
decision making followed by assertive action toward the
good is rewarded. You will earn great acknowledgment
as well as more tangible forms of compensation. Ascertain
the market value of your gifts, and find ways you can be
paid for some of the talents you now use for enjoyment. It
may be sensible to do some specialized studying so others
respect your credentials as well as your gift. When you are
ambitious enough to present your talents to the world in a more
professional manner, your position will undoubtedly advance.
The Six of this suit has generally been associated with the objectivity of scientific method, employed through the generations to sift fact from superstition, build facts into theories, and theories into Laws which we can trust and use to improve our lives. One early title for this card was The Navigator -- one who has learned enough about the relation between the Earth and the Heavens to be able to set a course across trackless oceans and arrive at a chosen spot on distant shores.At the time of the first Tarot decks, this skill was considered akin to magic, so few were the individuals who understood the principles involved. So the person who draws this card is being typified as a person with special knowledge, an insight into sophisticated techniques that may be powerful enough to effect a rescue in a dangerous time. Other related titles that are common to this card are The Path (out of danger) and The Way Through.

This painting was done by my bestest ever friend. We have been friends since we were 13. We have been through a lot together. She had a picture similar to this above her bed for years and I was always admiring it and wishing that one day she might do one for me. I think I only had to wait about 10 years! But it was well worth the wait and is still quite possibly my favourite piece of artwork. I just love this hanging above our bed. Something about the pencil/paint/masked flowers is such a lovely combination. I just love this and it always reminds me how fortunate I am to have an artist friend who can capture anything! So much talent!
This is a print I bought last year after successfully (well that is open to debate I suppose) breastfeeding the Wee One to my goal of six months. As a matter of fact I think I wasn't far off seven months! I really struggled with feeding her but struggled more with the thought of weaning her. I came across this print after our final feed and thought it was so aptly named that I just had to buy it. "Letting Go" sits on a shelf in my office above my computer and I gaze at it often thinking of the Wee One and our accomplishment.
