German-suited Tarot Decks + Tarot Meaning of 6 of Hearts and 6 of Spades
6 of Hearts
The card of the 6 of hearts represents Cupid, who is pointing an arrow at your heart. It denotes the act of falling in love. Please remain still as he shoots you!
In keeping with the meaning of the suit, the vibration of 6 resonates with responsibility and purpose. The Heart Suit depicts our society's social characteristics and connections. As a result, the 6 of Heart believes that it is their responsibility to help their family, friends, and worldly issues.
6 of Heart isn't a fan of luck. They put in long hours to attain their goals. They do it not for the sake of fame or glory, but because they feel compelled to. And they're good at it.
The 6 of Heart has a talent for large business, yet they are driven by a feeling of obligation. A comment from Conrad Hilton, founder of the Hilton Hotel empire, eloquently encapsulates the 6 of Heart's financial acumen. "The moment someone entrusted me with their money, there was a shackle of obligation that firmly attached itself to me." (Conrad Hilton: The Dreamer Who Conquered an Industry, Archbridge Institute)
The Six of Heart are meticulous perfectionists. I'm tenacious as well! Did I mention they're great negotiators? If they are inclined, their best commercial prospects appear between the ages of 39 and 51. The majority of Six of Hearts aren't very ambitious, preferring to work only as much as they need to maintain themselves and their families.
Trust is difficult to come by in love. A healthy relationship, according to the 6 of Heart, must also have a good financial arrangement. Men often form business partnerships with women, while ladies born under the sign of 6 of Heart appear to attract the bad guys!

6 of Spades
This is the 6 of Spades from our standard deck of playing cards. The six of spades in the tarot represents slight infidelity in a partnership. It can sometimes be an omen of adultery and divorce, but this is an uncommon occurrence.
Everyone in the Six of Spades is strong-willed and resolute, which is a benefit since their good karma contains a not-so-good karmic challenge in issues of the heart.
If the 6 of Spades is prepared to face the obligations that life throws at them, they have a lot of potential in their deck. These obligations often include family concerns or connections that conflict with their principles or personal objectives. Their greatest issue is their indecisiveness and bewilderment about love and what is expected of them! They may either accept their own limits and find innovative solutions to their dissatisfaction, or they can suffer and lose their power. When this occurs, their lives get engulfed in minutiae, gossip, and superficiality.
Six members of the Spade family value beauty and enjoy intellectually challenging interactions. They may seem cold and uncaring when it comes to death and life, yet they instinctively understand that there is no death, just Eternal Life.
This is the triumphant card. The successful Six of Spade are those who, despite the difficulties stacked against them, chose to march on and share their unique view of the world with anybody willing to listen.

There used to be a variety of 78-card Tarot packs produced by the German states; now, there are only two: both designs of Cego packs - Cego Adler by ASS Altenburger and Cego with genre sceneries by F.X. Schmid, both of which are French-suited.
However, there are cards that were and continue to be promoted as 'Tarock' cards. Bauerntarock, Württemberg Tarock, and Bavarian Tarock use regular 36-card German-suited decks. They are not actual tarot/tarock packs, but rather a Bavarian or Württemberg pattern of ordinary German-suited decks with just 36 cards, with pip cards ranging from 6 to 10, Under Knave (Unter), Over Knave (Ober), King, and Ace. These, like Klaverjas, employ an Ace-Ten rating, with Ace being the highest, followed by 10, King, Ober, Unter, and then 9 to 6. The default trump suit is the heart suit. By omitting the Sixes, the Bavarian deck may also be used to play Schafkopf.
Fun Fact: Each suit on a deck of cards in a card game was supposed to represent the four fundamental pillars of the Middle Ages economy: hearts represented the Church, spades represented the military, clubs represented agriculture, and diamonds represented the merchant class.
