Five of Swords – Deviant Moon Tarot Deck
I. The Description of Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot
A foreign soldier enters the town in Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot. He disrespects the king, causing himself to lose his honor by his tactics. It is impossible to win against an opponent like that so it is best not to fight at this time. He gathers five of the enemy’s swords around him and feels gleeful about his victory.
The only thing to know whether he wins or he loses is the white flag in the distance. This victory seems to be a meaningless one because of a lack of admiration and cheating. Many times, victory does not come from your determination and struggles, but rather the renunciation or yield of others or the distractions and tricks that make others want to give up quickly. Cockiness, arrogance, and bragging are absolutely forbidden in this case if one wants to keep the peace, reputation, and image in the eyes of others. Be humble, let people know why you have this.

Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot shows you engage in conflict or recognize disagreement with others, leading to tension and hostility. Even though you believe you won, you can still be a loser because you have hurt others and isolates yourself. You try to act as though the conflict was in the past, but the others now have lost faith in you and don’t want to be around you. You feel like everyone is against you and you have lost some companions. Is your opinion really important enough for you to put your relationship in jeopardy?
Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot can also represent conquest. If you have shown some positive in the struggle, you will sooner or later accomplish your goals. However, on the contrary, you need to make a compromise between your own interests and the desires of your opponents. You will feel many obstacles ahead, and you do not want to face them, even if it is imperative to get what you want. Overall, you are in a struggle and will have conflicts of will with others.
As such, the Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot is an ambition but in a negative sense – too ambitious without regard to the consequences for oneself or others. The ultimate result will be a loss for everyone. Either you get ruthless victories or a frustrated loser. In any case, there is a negative connotation. If you focus entirely on winning your goal at all costs, you will lose your own demeanor and the reward can be nothing.
Arrogance and pride often go hand in hand. When you reach a tough victory like this, don’t think you are invincible. You have passed a challenge, and you have the right to feel proud but there is always a higher mountain. Bragging yourself as unconquerable will only make others displeased and find ways to prove you wrong. If you win by cheating or misleading, watch out for revenge by others.

Also, the Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot can be seen from a completely different angle – a pointless victory. The man in this card either knows he is going to lose or tries to win, wasting energy and time meaninglessly. By choosing to give up, you really are the winner here, because you already know when to fight and when to retreat. Its advice is to choose your battle. You are tempted to fight to prove yourself right or to protect yourself when you feel challenged or intimidated by someone else. However, most experts agree that choosing battle wisely is better than fighting frantically. Making a good choice will bring about a life of peace and strengthen your relationships.

Finally, the reversed Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot suggests that you have finally gained some proficiency towards competitive conflict or combat. This indicates that you may be developing a tendency to automatically judge or criticize.

IV. The guideline of Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot
Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot refers to the harsh and serious process of clearing the battlefield after a conflict. The war is generally inconclusive, but in this fight, there are painful casualties. This card encourages the losers to carefully examine what happened so that they can come up with a new strategy and avoid more failures. It is necessary to regroup and rethink the plan, uncover your blind spots and weak links, and take corrective measures before returning to the field for another round.
In this modern age, when battles are often waged verbally, by law, and by contract instead of weapons, the more reasons we have to test our approach, style, strengths, and weaknesses. If we have underdeveloped communication skills or lose objectivity during times of stress, our ability to achieve goals and dreams decreases. However, if we avoid letting ourselves be haunted by forthcoming unhappiness and detours, we will continue to achieve those goals. Try to learn something.
Five of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot advises you to be prepared for frustration about how your fellows are setting their priorities. It seemed that human inferiority might be undermining goodwill in the current situation. Due to a strong cultural trend toward scarcity thinking, your self-benefits view predominates. Try not to get too angry or jump to conclusions. Just because others may feel pessimistic about the world, but their reality doesn’t necessarily undermine you. Definitely, there is no use struggling or competing with them. Your challenge now is to learn to avoid confrontation and elicit a more developed response from people. At least, be assertive in setting boundaries for yourself.
