The heart of the matter

The Five of Swords can be interpreted as either retreat or as conquest. As a conquest card, this card represents winning a battle against the odds. The battle is a metaphor for any of life's many struggles. If the card is being interpreted as representing retreat, then the card is all about accepting your limitations.


What is preventing your efforts

The Lovers is interpreted as romantic love, though can be considered to be the union of two opposite entities. When this card is in a blockage position it is an indication that it may be lust and not love that you are feeling. Alternatively, it may be an indication that you are part of a love triangle.


What you are trying to achieve

The presence of Temperance indicates that your goals should be all about harmony and understanding. It is important that you are aiming for a win-win situation. Win-win is about all involved parties gaining from a situation. While you may need to compromise to reach such an arrangement, the other parties should also be making equivalent compromises or sacrifices, otherwise you may in fact be dealing with a win-lose situation. Remember that not everything in life is a zero sum game. Often it is possible for both sides to gain.


Factors you may not be considering

The Hermit represents the most secretive part of ourselves. This is an indication that your present situation is best served by discretion. It is best to reflect carefully on your current situation before taking action.


Influences from the past

Justice is all about cause and effect. In the past position it is a reminder that your previous actions are what has lead you to your current situation. If your current situation is not so great, perhaps you should make amends for the mistakes you have made. Remember that everybody makes mistakes so take responsibility for your decisions even if that decision was simply putting trust in somebody who didn't deserve it.


Factors that may influence the future

The Five of Wands does not bode well for your future. It is an indication that your plans are not going to go as smoothly as you anticipate. Still, don't let minor setbacks deter you. Think of your situation as a jigsaw puzzle. As you get enough pieces of the puzzle together things will suddenly fall into place and you will be able find your way through the struggle.


How you are viewing the situation

To view things through the Ten of Pentacles is to consider yourself to be in a successful and prosperous phase of your life. While prosperity is often thought of in material wealth terms, having a happy family life is certainly considered to be a prosperous thing.


How others are viewing you

If other people consider you as a craftsman, the Three of Pentacles may be the card they have in mind. This card is about using your skills and ability to grow professionally.


Your current hopes and fears

The fear that the Two of Wands brings is that your desires are blinding you to your true needs. The hope is that you will be able to prove that you mean business. By trying to broaden your perspective, you will have a better idea of what you need to accomplish and what it is that you really need.


Potential outcome

The Hierophant is about systems of beliefs and in the future position is an indication that you will find things to believe in. The key to finding your faith is to first learn to think for yourself so that when the truth shows itself you will be able to see it.
