Self-sabotage is controlling your actions without you even realizing it! By repeating these behaviors, it keeps you stuck in the same place, rather than moving forward. No matter how hard you try, the past keeps catching up to you and it’s self-defeating, to say the least. Carrying emotional baggage leaves you heavy with memories you cannot change, lingering on to the present, and influencing the actions you take in the future. Fear of the unknown keeps you safe, even though it is stagnant. The Six of Swords Reversed is a gentle reminder that change is good and encourages you to be brave during this transition. It will open doors you didn’t know existed, but you have to trust the process. Open yourself up and allow yourself to transition to a new place.
