Five of Swords

Key Meanings:

Conflict and defeat. Being in trouble without doing anything wrong. Tension and betrayal. Unhealthy competition.

I take a moment to look within myself and remind myself of my true strengths.

The battle is over, but no one is celebrating. It is a battle with no victor. Still, the clouds have disappeared and the sky is clear. It is time.

Now is the time to find a way to engage in peace talks and this should be done with intuition. Allow others time.

Interpretation as Daily Card

You now need to look around for new comrades. End a conflict, it’s not worth the battle.

Meaning as a Relationship Card

As you can see and know from experience: fighting achieves nothing. Perhaps you want to be the stronger one but eventually the other party will no longer want to play. You now need to make it up to them.
