In Tarot parlance, the significator represents YOU, the questioner. Paired with the Six of Swords reversed, we’re talking about having difficulty making a transition, leaving a hard time or painful situation behind. Trying to move to something better, but having a rough time staying out of the waves of emotion. Reversed, it’s not too long before the lady falls right out of that boat!
Like in all Tarot Sixes, there is strength in cooperative projects. This card is associated with Mercury in Aquarius, so I’m thinking (Mercury) some detachment (Aquarius) may be in order. Ha!
Consider getting a second opinion! Ask an outsider for perspective if you cannot see your situation objectively. If a safe outside evaluation isn’t available, at the very least try to look at it as someone without your emotional investment might. Pretend, damn it. That “looking in” angle will give you insight needed to get the boat aright without panicking and wearing yourself out, flailing in the water.
Are you having trouble with a transition?
