Five of Swords (Reversed) General meaning

The Five of Swords, like all 5s in the deck, shows its most favorable side when they are reversed in a reading.

Thus, in this reverse position, it suggests that you have considered that struggle and conflict must be overcome.

You know that no one is going to win in this battle and that the best thing is to work with forgetfulness, forgiveness and compassion, fostering truces and understandings instead of continuing to confront in vain.

You do this to improve yourself, to give your best version, to be better. Now you are finally ready to settle the issue or existing struggles, leave them behind and move forward again.

You open yourself to change , you have a better disposition to reach agreements and have a new and different approach where before there were only shocks and obstacles.

Somehow everyone puts down their arms, but mainly you, because you understand that negotiating will be more advantageous for the situation and for everyone involved.

Thus, The Five of Swords proposes that this is an excellent time to resolve conflicts and old disputes, establish agreements and truces and make peace with those with whom you have been maintaining conflicts.

In another look , The Five of Swords can point out some kind of situation that still haunts you. For example conflicts that you feel overcome and resolved, that still appear in your life eventually to annoy you, even though you have long since left them behind.

It could be, for example, an ex who has not been able to solve things like you, is still attached to the conflict and annoys you, preventing you from moving forward, looking for a new relationship or partner for your life. If this is the case, you should avoid these people and these situations as much as possible.

In these cases, The Five of Swords shows that old wounds open , bringing you the things of the past to complicate the present. This can logically cause you worry and fear of reliving those old things and getting hurt again, but you should above all try to forgive and forget, rather than fear.

If there have been resentments and things not resolved with situations from the past or with people, you must focus and work on it, carrying these loads is an extra weight on your way forward.

Finally, The Five of Swords can point out that you cannot conform to everyone and that sometimes you have to ignore or pay as much attention to the opinions or points of view of others.

You will never conform to everyone, this is a fact and some may get angry or distance themselves from you, mainly if they are affected in a more or less direct way by your decisions. This is collateral damage, an almost inevitable cost that you will have to accept.

Your life is only yours and if others are not happy they have two problems, the first is being angry and the second is that they work to make it go away. As simple as that.

If you are looking for love, your choices or decisions may surprise others and they will not agree. Well, they must accept things, Your life is your life.
