Today's Community Tarot Card is the 5 of Swords. Like all of the 5's, this is a card of the Crossroads. You can keep going or choose a new direction. It's up to you. There is no fate or destiny at work here, just your own will in the situation. There is no coming back from this position. You have either alienated those you are in conflict with, or you are the one who has been cut off. Best to move on from this point and start afresh. Let it go. It's not worth the struggle, and the price paid will be very high if you persist. There is nothing to win and no ground to gain.
About the image: The 5 of Swords from the Universal Waite Tarot card. Three figures on a stage or raised platform; two figures have their backs to the viewer. One is in the distance, standing still with their head bowed. The other is in the middle distance and appear to be in motion, possibly looking at the distant figure. In the foreground is a figure with their body facing the front, but their face is turned to watch the retreating figures. They hold a sword in one hand, point facing down, two swords are in the other hand, points facing up, blades resting against their shoulder. Beyond the figures and the stage is the ocean with mountains showing across the water. The background of the card shows a very light blue sky with grey clouds across it.
Each Tarot card offers us a Gift, Invitation, and Challenge. Before you read on, decide if you want to know which one the 5 of Swords has for you today. Please let us know in the comments what your choice was and how the answer applies to you.
The Gift of this card is that the future is a clean sheet of paper and the past is a closed chapter. You can start again with no serious repercussions or lasting losses for walking away.
The Invitation of this card is to cut your losses and head in a new direction.
The Challenge of this card can be neatly summed up as "Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?"
(Hint: the Gift is the grace that is already given us to overcome the Challenge, so if you chose the Challenge, also see the Gift.)
