This is a powerful card, and the card of a person who is here to learn the responsibility of such power. These people either align themselves to a higher purpose and vision and achieve great success, or have their power turned against them for their own downfall. As a rule, these people are very responsible for their actions but a strong Neptune influence can lead many of them down the road of escapism and time lost in fantasy. They are dreamers to be sure. They must latch on to the highest dream they can and use their power to attain it. Nothing can stop them once this vision is clear. Fulfillment on every level is guaranteed.
This is the Card of overcoming, and all SIX of Spades people are strong willed and determined; often fixed and stubborn! The SIX of Spades have great potential and power in their Life Pattern of Cards, but if they don't accept the responsibilities that are being constantly placed upon them, they will drift toward discouragement, lack of initiative, and ultimately, what one could call a very boring life! The SIX of Spades people are strictly just - and they may seem hard and unfeeling at times. Intuitively, they know that there is no death, only Eternal Life. It is this truth that they have come to fully realize in our finite world of mortality. Tried and tested throughout their lives, when the SIX of Spades are beaten down it is only to rise up, and try even harder the second, or third time around!
The Way of WONDER - The PERFECTIONIST to the CHILD: The goal for the individuals on the Way of Wonder is to let go of their exacting attitudes in order to approach life in a more open, relaxed manner, one that is defined by a childlike sense of awe at or delight in the world. Cultivating and experiencing wonder are the purpose of this path. This requires releasing the details of life and a propensity to perfectionism in order to achieve a broader view.
