Every Tuesday I select one card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.
Today's card is the Five of Swords (reversed). I used my Mystic Faerie Tarot deck again this week. I love the artwork on these cards!
Fives represent forces of change, something that upsets the balance, and disrupts the stability represented by the four (remember that fours are like the legs of a very sturdy table). Five is halfway through the cycle and may indicate disruption or change along the way.
Swords represent conflicts and/or mental or intellectual qualities, which in this case might indicate logically going over and over a problem to figure out what happened and how to best fix it...which can be mentally draining.
The Five of Swords can then indicate forces of change, an argument, energetic competition with other people and being attracted to situations involving conflict.
Today's card is REVERSED, however, which means that the forces mentioned above are either blocked or the worst is over. Yeah!
This means that you have faced the forces of change by simply allowing, you've walked away from an argument or no longer have "winning" as your highest goal, and may be shedding the people and situations around you that are causing conflict.
The Five places you right in between the Four of Swords (rest and rejuvenation) and the Six of Swords (calmer waters ahead). You have gotten through the disruption of the five and are ready to move on.
You probably have a pretty good idea what situation this is referring to in your life. If it hasn't surfaced or gotten to this point yet, be aware that it may happen in the next couple of weeks. This card was pulled today to give you a heads-up so that you can respond to a potentially disruptive situation instead of reacting.
If you feel yourself beginning to react to your "competition" or face a disruption in your life, the Five of Swords prompts you to pause and allow the emotions to come up, deal with what's there and then act/respond. This is a case where taking ten deep breaths can not only breathe new life into your body, but refresh your mind and soul and help you create a much-needed pause.
Today get into a mental (Swords) space and contemplate this question: How can you keep the message of the Five of Swords reversed in mind when facing the heat of the moment? The bonus here is that you have a heads-up!
