About Five of Swords Card

A Five of Swords tarot card is a card that indicates an unpleasant process of resolving the consequences of losing a battle. If you wonder, “What does the Five of Swords mean in tarot?”, bear in mind there are upright and reversed cards that differ in their interpretations.

Upright Five of Swords meaning implies that you may have lost some conflict or are close to losing it. If your adviser draws such a card, it is very likely that higher powers are telling you that your loss is a perfect time to reflect on your mistakes and think about a new plan. For example, a Five of Swords pulled out during a career reading may indicate that your job project can turn into a disaster for your reputation and your company. Therefore, you should analyze your mistakes and define the weak sides of your team and the project idea.  

Not all advisers pay attention to reversed cards. But if you take them into account, you should also know about the reversed Five of Swords tarot card meaning. As you understand, a reversed card is the opposite of the upright one. In the case of the Five of Swords, this card may indicate that you have managed to defeat a critical or judgmental attitude toward the world.
