TAROT CARD OF THE WEEK: FIVE OF SWORDS UPRIGHT
Challenges and conflict are a couple of words that come to mind for the Five of Swords.
Have you had a falling out, disagreement or conflict lately? Often times when this happens you walk away with a sense of sadness and loss.
You may be upset and resentful over the heated words you said and now wish you could take back. Even if you won the argument you realize that you have lost as much as your opponent. This battle has cost you trust, respect or dignity, and isolated you.
As you try to pick up the pieces and set the conflict behind you, you find it’s more difficult than you thought; others have lost faith in you and are keeping their distance.
The advice of the Five of Swords is to pick your battles. Choosing your battles wisely is a much better way of life than engaging in every disagreement.
Not only will it lead to a more peaceful existence, but your interpersonal relationships are likely to come out stronger.
