The Five of Swords suggests that you’ve recently had a conflict with someone and you’re still dealing with the repercussions. You might have technically “won” the dispute but you’re now figuring out that there are considerable downsides to your “victory”. This card cautions against getting embroiled in controversies and engaging in showdowns. Sometimes it’s necessary to put up a fight, but in general, it’s best to pick your battles. Constant combativeness alienates everyone around you. But it’s not too late to transform the situation and salvage your relationships. Open up a line of communication and try to find common ground. Focus on what you agree on and how you can move forward in the future. Your change of approach will pay off for you in the long run.
