e8451e082e5bb9f8379ca8d479b048bd

When pulled upright this card is about being in a conflict. It also could be about a disagreement with someone(s) which is creating a lot of tension in your relationship with them. It may appear that you’ve won right now but when you look at the big picture you may realize that you’ve actually lost because you have damaged your relationship with this person which has now isolated you. You may find that at the time you were more concerned with being right than understanding the other person’s point of view. Now you need to try and pick up the pieces and fix this relationship you’ve hurt. The conflict is still fresh so resentment hasn’t had time to fester. You need to decide what is most important to you, winning the argument or your relationship with said person. This card is also about a negative type of ambition. This is the kind of ambition that has no regard for others. It doesn’t care who it has to knock down to achieve it’s goal. This kind of ambition can leave you either a sore loser or a sore winner and nothing in between. This card reminds us to think about others and to let go of our egos.

When pulled in reverse this card is about wanting to forgive and forget the conflict that the five of swords in the upright position is referring to. This card shows that you have started to realize that winning isn’t always everything. Because of this you will be able to take all the energy you were investing in winning and put it towards something better. There is another interpretation of this card which is that the conflict you are experiencing is going to become more upsetting as you realize you all are going to lose.

Here is a tarot spread to help you organize your thoughts on a conflict you’re experiencing. First I would take the five of swords out of the deck and meditate on it while focusing on this conflict. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

When pulled upright this card is about how you need to be open to new ideas, especially ones that come to you through your own intuition. Even though these intuitive ideas may have come unexpected it it important that you embrace them. These ideas can lead you on a new journey and open many doors for you. This card really puts an emphasis on creative doings. So if your new idea is music/art related really grab on to it and don’t let go. This card also suggests that you if you are struggling with something you should try looking at it from a different angle. This card is also about being persistent as persistence is the only way to achieve all that you desire. Always make sure you follow your intuition, fulfill your calling in life, and always believe anything and everything is possible. If you are someone who struggles with showing their emotions the page of cups is telling you now is the time. Both your creative and emotional side need to be expressed regardless of how unimportant they seem to you. A big reason many people struggle showing their emotions is because their ego won’t allow it. Take this card as a sign saying that it is okay to let those walls down and start a new beginning so you can become the real you.

When pulled in reverse this card is about being in a creative block. There are projects in your life that you started due to the joy it brought you but as of late you have been doing it for other reasons; be it money, fame, obligation, what have you. This card is telling you to remember why you started this and to bring the joy back into your project. Doing this will remove your creative block that you’re dealing with. This card could also be referring to a troubled person. This person is afraid of their reality right now. This fear could be due to emotions, finances, illnesses or something else entirely. Due to this fear you may find them trying to escape their reality through the abuse of drugs, alcohol, sex, etc. This person could be you or it could be a loved one who is struggling with self-acceptance. This card can be about someone having a lack of inspiration, self-worth, and/or someone who is depressed.

Here is a tarot spread for those of you who struggle to understand their emotions. The first step of expressing them is to understand them. First I would take the page of cups out of the deck and meditate on it thinking about how you have been feeling lately. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

When pulled upright this card is about accomplishing something that is giving you public recognition. You have reached your goals and you are being celebrated for it. You may have received an award as well. This card shows that you have found your strengths and how to use them to manifest the outcomes you want in life. The card before this (the five of wands) is a card about confusion. Pulling the 6 of wands shows that you have gotten past this confusion and have managed to achieve your goals. Although this card is mostly positive it is worth noting that a downside to this card could be that all this success is bringing self-importance, a large ego, and arrogance.

When pulled in reverse this card is about doubting your abilities and your abilities to reach your goals as a whole. You might be feeling negative about yourself because not only have you been failing yourself but you have been failing others This is telling you that you are lacking the confidence and ambition you need to achieve your goals. In order to reach your goals you need support from those around you to give you the recognition you need.

Here is a tarot spread to help you gain confidence in yourself so you can better achieve your goals. Take the 6 of wands out of the deck and meditate on your self doubts becoming your strengths. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
