The Six of Swords: Reversed Meanings
The Golden Tarot Six’s
The Four Sixes in the Tarot represent stability and security or the potential or opportunity to find it. A halt or ceasefire has been called on their individual battles or difficulties. Now that the storm has passed each Suit will seek comfort, harmony, peace and equilibrium in the only way they know which is governed by their influencing Element. Sixes reflect one’s journey toward harmony. There are three parts to this concept. The first is that, in order to take a journey, one must begin by leaving. Sixes are cards of departure. The second part is the journey itself. Sixes are cards that remind you to live in the present as you move through this transition. The third part of the concept summarizing cards with this number is harmony. When a card with the number six appears in your Tarot reading, the outcome will be harmonious.
The Golden Tarot Suit of Swords
The Suit of Swords is associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence. This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. The Suit of Swords deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centred around the mind and the intellect. Swords mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Swords themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups). The negative aspects of the Suit of Swords (i.e. when the Swords cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.
Comprised of imagery from the European masters paintings, Golden Tarot cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The Golden Tarot of Klimt is one of the best for artwork. Golden Tarot aims to reconnect the Tarot aesthetically and esoterically to its origins in early-renaissance Italy. From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: The pip cards of the Marseille deck do not contain scenes like the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. Instead the symbols of each suit are simply repeated on the pip cards the requisite number of times. For example, the Five of Cups displays five cups, the Six of Swords shows six swords, and so on. The court cards consist of a king, queen, knight, and page (roy, reine, chevalier, valet).
Creative Tarot: Its easy to see why artists in particular connect to the deck. Tarot readers tell storiesstories that might not always have a logical sense but have instead an intuitive meaning. The story is guided by a feeling, or perhaps the mood a color suggests to the reader, or strange coincidences in the pictures. (For instance, on one card, three figures are hunched over their work, so that might be relevant because . . .) That is a creative act. And so artists, used to working in that way, often take to the decks like ducks to water.
Complete Book of Tarot: The Italian artists who painted the first tarot decks added a fifth, or trump, suit to the four standard suits to create a deck for playing a game similar to modern bridge. The early tarot decks varied in the total number of cards contained. As the tarot deck continued to evolve, the total number of cards eventually settled at seventy-eight.
