02/04/14: Fight for Health / 5 of Swords

Five of Swords BodyMore focus on the physical with the Five of Swords paired with “Body.” Oy.

And another example of what makes these positional focus cards so interesting. I’d never have been giving out repeated physically-oriented dailies without so much attention being called to the body this way.

All Tarot Fives are full of struggle. Here, we have a card commonly characterized as “defeat.” And I wonder, which faction do we represent–the victor or the defeated?

If you’re facing a physical challenge at the moment, I’d say you can come out on top but it will be a struggle. Five of Swords victories are not effortlessly gained. If you don’t put in the effort to safeguard you body and health, expect to pay the price for that decision. In no way is this a done deal.

Be willing to set boundaries, say “no,” make reasonable demands, and otherwise ensure your physical environment, needs and overall well-being are attended to. Not a time to skimp on good food, either!

This attention is necessity, not luxury. Care for thy temple. Your efforts will be rewarded.

How’s your health?

  1. Just got methylation DNA results. So complicated, but it tells you how to begin fixing imbalances. For general health, mood, etc.

  2. I’m still feeling the Mystic Dreamer Tarot so I looked up this card. WOA!

    3 females, I’m getting maiden, mother & crone. It looks as if the 1st 2 have turned their backs on the crone & she’s the one surrounded by swords. They stole them & left her to deal with it. If we’d done our job when we were the maiden & mother then maybe the crone wouldn’t be in this predicament. Like in the 8 of wands from this deck there are bird messengers – geesh. The ships shows up again too & still can’t tell if it’s coming or going. The water is not smooth and there’s a big wave about to crash.

    Do the crone’s ankles seem a little swollen to you? She seems very familiar hahaha.

  3. F**K!!

  4. Well, I spent my day researching mental health professionals that are close enough for me to get to on a weekly basis. I’m in hermit mode, and sinking in it, and I need to make some serious changes like weeks ago. Tomorrow morning, with the help of Hamilton CapTel, I will be calling them in order of preference and getting this set up.

    I’m not allowing myself to get as far underwater as I was in 2005 EVER again.

Shine Thy Light!
