When I see the Six of Swords (Mercury in Aquarius), I think of the song “Bridge over Troubled Waters.” And this one shows up most often when there’s been a lot of water under the bridge. Those swords may have been hurled at her for all we know. Whether or not they were, though, I can promise you she felt like they were.
I know because I am her and I’ve been her and at some time or another, every single person gets their Six-of-Swords turn. This is the tuition of Earth school.
Mercury, of course, ferried folks across the River Styx. It’s the ultimate in transition. Believing in the ultimate benevolence of the universe (even if it’s painful as Hell getting to the point), I’m inclined to see this ferry leading to better things. In a universal, big-picture, Aquarian sort of way.
Though we’ve not suffered the utter devastation of the Death card, the sense of loss is unmistakable. But just as strong is the sense of hope.
I am totally feeling this. How about you?
