Six of Swords - Harmony - Yeii Spirit

The Six of Swords is not a happy card, but harmonious, signifying an acceptance of limitations, and what can and can't be done.  I see myself as I am.
This harmony comes from a tranquil mind, not necessarily a tranquil heart. I now have insight and understanding of how the pattern of life works and can move forward.

This card describes exactly the way I am feeling presently. I know why I am on this road, how I got here, and am beginning to know what it means, which allows for change. We all ask those life questions. Who am I, where am I going , and how much is it going to cost? Just kidding about that last bit.

No one ever completely figures out what it all means. The fun is in the trying. It's the journey that's important, not the destination.

Though the Six of Swords is not a 'happy' card,  it is one of harmony, that gives a sense of dignity and self respect.

The question of the heart, well that's a different story, but my heart is open today, if not completely tranquil. That works for me right now, one day at a time.

I love how in this version of the six of Swords Orestes is standing comfortably straight up alone in his boat. Most of the time the main person in the card has to be helped by a boatman.
In the Wildwood Tarot there is also only one woman in the boat. I like how this radiates a sense of independence :)

I really respond to the image
depicted in cards, because it really affects the meaning for me. The Dude is strong doesn't need help. There is definitely a confidence that comes with knowing and accepting who you are.
