Five of swords stands for The first decade of Aquarius from January 20 to 31.
The sign of Aquarius symbolizes the development of thought, making the secret explicit and tearing off all masks of reality.
Emotional insight into problems develops thought, and the freedom of creativity, revealing the desire of thought, expands the horizons of the world and makes it clear and bright. Governs the first decade of Aquarius – Venus. And this decade symbolizes such qualities as clarity of mind, ease of perception, inventive talents and … the collision of one’s own impulse of thought with life (Venus) – which naturally, by and large, ends in the victory of life and the defeat of thought. However, Venus is, first of all, subjective creativity, and therefore creativity in the field of art, which does not give a reliable answer to emerging questions of consciousness
but nevertheless creates the basis for these answers to be found.
FIVE OF SWORDS symbolizes an attempt to go beyond the narrow framework of the FOUR OF SWORDS, leaving the parental home, she wants more perfection and more freedom. This is a clash of internal intentions and thoughts among themselves, which can lead to original conclusions, and can leave it with a broken trough. Three figures are depicted on the Tarot card: one (the winner) carries three swords, the other (in the background) is defeated and cries, but the third is removed undefeated (she has the right to choose when to go into battle and when to retreat). The metaphysical power of the FIVE is directed toward destruction, at sweeping away from the road all that interferes with its movement. FIVE OF SWORDS is a cleansing, cutting off all unnecessary in attempts to overcome the earthly. This is penance and ascent to the heights through the rejection of the earthly (symbolized by the four).
