Daily Tarot Reading March 12: Five of Swords, Two of Swords, The Fool

This is a general reading for you. Please contact me for personalized, in-depth readings.I drew three cards for you today: Five of Swords, Two of Swords, and The Fool.

The Five of Swords represent self-interest, hostility, and acting in your own best interest, often at the expense of others. When we see the Five of Swords, it shows us that though it is healthy to have a good deal of self-love and self-respect, this can become a negative force in our lives. The Rider Waite tarot card for the Five of Swords depicts a man clutching three swords to his chest while he walks away from two other men. These two figures have their swords on the ground. One is raising a cup to the sky, and the other is bending over a body of water.

It’s almost as if the men were in battle and when two took a break, the third gathered more than enough swords for his own protection, and took off, leaving them to fend for themselves. One trademark of a genuine, compassionate, and loving being is putting others’ needs ahead of their own. The Five of Swords is a wake-up call to say that our self-interest is causing harm, keeping us apart from others, and ultimately will leave us alone.

The Two of Swords represents avoidance and not wanting to face facts. It’s about not seeing what is in front of your eyes, but because you are willfully cutting yourself off from the truth. It works with the Five of Swords as both cards refer to being defensive and cutting yourself off from others. It also speaks about blockages and the inability to move forward in your life because you are stuck in denial, unwilling to face facts and see the truth.

For today’s reading, the message is to stop acting in your own best interest, especially at other’s expenses. Stop refusing to see the truth of the situation because by doing so, you are not growing. You are stopping your own success because you have put up too many defenses and those defensive behaviors are causing you to stay in the same situation without growing and moving beyond it.

The third card of this spread is The Fool. It has been said The Fool is the most powerful card in the tarot deck because it is the card of new beginnings.No matter where you are in life, there is always the hope of a new beginning. Before you can take that first step into your divine destiny, you have to stop acting in your own best interest, stop hurting others by being defensive, and face facts. Admit to your wrongdoings and mistakes. Everyone makes them, you are not alone in this. Seek forgiveness and restitution when possible and leave the past in the past.

Sometimes forgiveness and restitution aren’t possible and it’s simply time to move on. Don’t stay stuck in a situation waiting for the other party to come to a peaceful agreement with you. Face the facts, whatever they are. Keep your heart open to forgiveness, love, and compassion.

Leave the past where it belongs. Open your eyes and take the first step. The energy of The Fool is with you and brings you hope for the future. Don’t be dismayed and remove negativity. Stay positive and keep the faith. Yes, we all make mistakes, learn from them and move on.

Your divine journey awaits you, but you must take the first step.

Will you take it?
