Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-6 of Swords-Science & The Connolly Tarot 6 of Swords

The Tarot of Eli




The Thoth Six of Swords-Science illustrates the Balance of the idea of the Suit of Air. Tiphareth, the Middle 6th  Sephiroth on the Middle Pillar of the Tree of Life, is the Sun/son of God Sephiroth, known as Beauty; Beauty being the perfect balance of opposites, or as psychologist/philosopher-Carl Jung would say, "...a Synchronicity".

The  Higher Intellect itself is also referred to in the number 6 , as it is the number of the Sun, which represents the Bright-Warm Intelligence.

In the zodiac, this card is influenced by Mercury in Aquarius, which represents the celestial Energy Intelligence influencing the Soul of Man. Thus, the Six of Swords-Science, shows both intelligence and humanity.

However, there is much more to be seen in this symbol, as it is about a state of all mental and moral facilities hardly won and almost impossible to hold in an ever-changing world.
In the Thoth Deck, the four Sixes represent the center of the whole system of the Tree of Life, known as Tiphareth (Beauty). The Sixes, Tiphareth, are the only Sephiroth below the Abyss that communicates directly with Kether (Crown). Tiphareth, is fed directly from Chokma-Binah (wisdom-understanding) and Chesed-Geburah (Mercy-Severity).

For those who are a student of the Human Auric field and the Chakras, you know Kether as the Crown Chakra ( Sahasrara chakra), and Tiphareth as the Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura chakra).

Tiphareth dominates the lower Sephiroth of the Tree of Life, as it is balanced both vertically and horizontally, giving it Supremacy over physical life. Tiphareth is also known as Beauty-the Christ-Consciousness.
As a planetary influence, Tiphareth represents the Sun; as a theosophical concept, Tiphareth is the theological Son who represents consciousness in its most balance and harmonized form.  The Son is an interpretation of the Father in mind and form rather than just idea.

The Sixes actually represent their respective element at its practical best.



When we look at the Thoth 6 of Swords-Science, we see that the ornate sword-hilts form an Hexagram ( a symbol of the linking of "the above and the below"). 

Illustrated on the Thoth card,  the Points of the Six Swords touch each other in the Center of a red rose on a golden cross of six squares. The red is hard to see on the card illustration as it has faded due to processing. The Golden cross, the Red Rose and the six squares show the Rosy Cross as the central secret of scientific truth.

The Student of Gnosis ( Greek for Knowledge) would be wise to study the Rosy Cross and/or Rosicrucian philosophy as it is an integral part of that study.

In reiteration, the adept will find the initiation of Tiphareth the first of the Greater Initiations into the meaning of Self.  This Tiphareth initiation  is literally a scarifying of all that we know to be self, and life as we have lived it.  Here the sacrifice is not relinquishing the much desired something, but rather a transition of Force, from that of the will of lesser consciousness to the Pure Will of the Greater Self. "Thy will be done" rather than, "my will be done'. 
The  Six of Swords  is about definite accomplishment and carrying out of a matter.


 As stated, Assigned to the 6 of Swords is the zodiacal Mercury in Aquarius. Thus, this card is also called: Lord of Earned Success The Angels of the Decan are: Rehaayal and Yeyezeil. The Six of Swords is influenced by Tiphareth in the Astral World [ Yetzirah].

The air sign of Aquarius, is ruled by Saturn, which tends to stabilize the fleeting qualities of Mercury. The positioning of Mercury in Aquarius, a Mind sign, leads naturally to science and humanitarianism so success is  the result of Saturn's work in this aspect.
In the Six of Swords, the cutting power of Swords is turned toward the positive, and the Rose is resurrected after being war torn in the Fives of Swords, due to the 5th Sephiroth- Severity/Geburah.

In the Six of Swords, the swords all come together at a point in the restored Rose Cross of Six squares, which Crowley calls, " The Rose Cross at  the central secret of Scientific Truth."  Thus, we have the definitive meaning of "success after anxiety and trouble", for the Way of the Cross is suffering before ascension.  In short, this is the science of mind over the material world or as some would say, "Mind over matter".

The Connolly Tarot-6 of Swords,
focuses more on the "way of the Cross" as it depicts a youthful person crossing the bridge of swords, holding a wand of triumph high.
 The message here
seems to be that one is crossing the bridge that ends a difficult cycle, by setting their sights on the promising future on the other side of the difficulty, shown by the flowering roses.

Once again, the Connolly tarot,
prefers the more mundane meaning and therefore following the tradition of the Rider-Waite and Golden Dawn decks.

When the Six of Swords is thrown during a reading it indicates:
  •  That in six weeks or six months, the querent shall have experienced or will experience: Labor, work, and even a journey probably over water because of the Aquarius influence.
  • Success after anxiety and trouble.
  • Selfishness, beauty, conceit, but sometimes modesty within all depending on dignity which is supplied by the surrounding cards.
  • So what this card means is that the querent should use the whole mind (The Circle in the Card) to observe the situations of the next 6 weeks or 6 month, and look at what is really there rather than what we want to see.
  • Being able to see many thoughts at once, is represented by the pinwheels throughout the Card and being discerning is shown by the Whole mind (circle) and the Creative Mind ( Diamond) working in unison to solve problems by constructive and creative means.
  • One's mind is centered with the "Buddha within".
