The Tower and Five of Swords cards together – what do they mean?
The Tower and the Five of Swords do not seek friendships or love easily. As a result of cold behaviour, you are running into a sudden battle ground.
Life: Falling out with people, suffering the consequences, unwilling to back down
Love: Arguments, sudden change in relationship status, negative attitude towards love
Career: Unwelcoming to new ideas, creating tension, under fire at work
Health: Your own worst enemy, not listening to advice of others, sudden health scare
If you keep refusing to listen to anybody else, you will find yourself rather alone and in sudden need of redemption.
The Tower Interpretation
The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.
There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.
If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.
Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.
‘You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower
Five Of Swords interpretation
The Five Of Swords is caught by his own grace in conflict.
I am unsure if a peaceful is what you really want due to your engagement in conflict around you. It isn’t as if it is happening in your view and you are turning away. You are in the throes of hostility and as much as this is creating stress, so are you. You hate to lose and always want the last word.
In raising your battle swords this way, you are bound to lose friends or family (or both). In creating tensions, you isolate yourself from compromise for the sake of wanting to be right and this strain is evident in all areas of your life.
You could be finding negative ways to work with others and your attitude may be the communicative decline for how your team usually comes together. Hostility is cold, and that isn’t how anybody should behave professionally. Arguments in love may too be rife, which leads to a slippery slope of toxicity. There are far better ways to voice your opinion and it doesn’t have to be to the detriment of those you care about.
