Today’s card is again a Swords card and to be honest I am a bit tired of it. Even my Major Arcana card from yesterday, Justice, had a sword in it. Where are all the Cups, Pentacles and Wands in this deck???
Okay the Five of Swords for now is what we have work with. The man in the front has won the battle; the guy in the back is the defeated one. When I draw this card I always wonder: who am I today? Keep in mind this is a Swords card so this is about thoughts and ideas, about truth and conviction. A battle with this in mind would be more like a debate and or hefty discussions; trying to hold on to your own ideas without showing any consideration with somebody else’s feelings. The winner doesn’t look that happy with his victory he is looking over his shoulder to the other guy. Maybe a bit remorseful?
Fighting to be right can be endless. Most of the time it is not so much about wanting to convince somebody of your point a view but more about wanting to be right. How much energy could be saved, how much more peaceful could sharing thoughts be, if we could just appreciate each other’s opinion.
“Be selective in your battles. Sometimes peace is better than being right”
