A Walk Through the Thoth Tarot
Five of Swords
Ugh, our swords have broken and bent and are atop a field of spikey looking asymmetric wings. The swords themselves form an averse pentagram, which for us, can be a problem. Venus in Aquarius is a good thing as they are nice and peaceful but too polite to say anything while they sit in Geburah, home of Mars (martial and quarrelsome).
We had a time of rest in the Four but now we are back at it, swords are too airy for structure or permanence. Also, Venus is bringing a lot of emotion to this card and a sword is more aimed at logical thought. Add too much emotion and our distanced clear thinking can make us too sensitive to cope with disappointment.
Disappointment will happen but we need to use our intellect and reason to focus on what happened. Did we have too high expectations? Did we take something on we weren't really suited for? Seeing clearly will help us realize setbacks happen and we can move on with more knowledge for next time.
