Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Swords – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Five of Swords - Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

There’s no need to fall on your sword, it is not your fight! Please stop feeling you have to be part of the struggles around you. Focus on your plate and forget about the rest of the table. You don’t need it, you’ve been through your challenges. Now is the time to relax, focus and let go of the stress others are trying to heap onto your shoulders! If you must, take your assignments to a different location and get away from the negativity.

Additional Insight:

Consider the meaning behind the Swords:
They represent Strength & Weakness, Endurance & Struggle, Respect & Animosity.

If you allow others to manipulate you and pull you into their fight, you’re giving them permission to take your strength and create worry and struggle in your life. That negativity generates anger, stress and attracts more of the same kind of energy into your world. You’ll begin to hold animosity toward them for having brought you into this. And they’ll start holding animosity for you because you’re not saving them. Haven’t you been through enough struggles already?

Have the strength and respect for yourself to stand up and say “No, I’m not doing this anymore”. You have endured your own hardships, fought long and hard to overcome and rebuild your own world. It’s time to turn away from the fire and get off the battlefield. You are not the same person you were, you’ve changed for the better. You’re stronger and more able to hold your own against the best anyone can throw your way. Their attempts to guilt you into saving them can’t work anymore. And your ability to “fix” things for everyone else never existed in the first place. You already know that, so why are you trying to save everyone again?

What’s being thrown all around you isn’t about you! Don’t allow it become part of your world. Walk away! No matter how hard you may think this will impact you, it’s not your fight! You will end up exactly where you NEED to be. Stop fearing the worse, or you’ll add to the fray! 

Sometimes you must let others fall so they can learn their own lessons and change their ways. You can’t save them no matter how much you see the writing on the wall. And it’s not your responsibility to try anyway!  Let it go, focus on your items and what’s important to you in your life! Your actions are not something that you can keep in a bag and away from those you care about. You will impact the ones you love if you get involved, and probably not in a good way!

Today and through the weekend, get away from those trying to manipulate you. Don’t answer the calls you know are going to contain drama and issues. Get out and away from the world you’re stuck in during the week.  Even if it’s nothing more than a walk around the block, a drive out in the country or a picnic at the park. Get away and relax in the great outdoors. Sit by a tree and listen to nature. Rekindle your soul with peace and calm serenity. You’ll be the better for it come Monday.
