Six of Swords
The Six of Swords represents a retreat that you are in the process of taking. You have been dealing with heavy stress, signified by the choppy water behind the boat. This card can also indicate that you feel haunted by someone or something, and you seek closure. You are in the process of leaving this behind, setting forth for the calmness of still waters. You are learning to balance your mental state, evidenced by the swords that do not fall though the boat is in motion. You are also the protector in the situation. Your loved ones are relying on you to carry them away from troubled waters. You wont let them down.
