“It is all a game until one gets hurt.”
And it must be admitted that that statement is extremely suitable for the case of the Five of Swords Mermaid Tarot.
Innocent mermaids and merman find the weapons of humanity and excitedly toy with the newfound objects, and accidentally someone gets injured. The problem with those pointed and sharp objects is that they have the potential to cause injury and pain. As the little merman looks at the blood flowing from his hands with horror, the reason his guardian penguin gently pats him on the head is that the penguin is so aware of the pain and suffering that human objects can bring to aquatic creatures. The other kids stop playing and do not know what to do. The first thing they instinctively do is to stop the bleeding because if the blood flows into the water, it will bring a lot of trouble and possibly danger.
The message of Five of Swords Mermaid Tarot in a reading
In a Tarot reading, the Five of Swords Mermaid Tarot carries the meaning of inconsistent behavior and stress. Sometimes, it is also about an impending change in the future or resentment from the past. The message mainly revolves around the issue of conflict, change, challenge, or fight. This card can also be associated with failure, making matters more difficult.
There may be conflict and setbacks, and this is the most uncomfortable time of your life. However, remember that you have only lost one battle, so stay strong. If you stumble, you always have the opportunity to step back, learn from experience, and then come up with a more appropriate direction. Therefore, look for constructive advice and suggestions when reading information about this card.
The Five of Swords Mermaid Tarot is a card about personal and social interests, urging us to think about others, but currently, we are against that thought. So how do we ignore the above concerns while we are still living and existing? The dilemma supposedly comes from the definition of self. If you consider the ego to be the body or the personality, then the benefits become the factors involved. For example, do you have food? Are you happy? Can you extend the relationship?
In a tarot spread where the Five of Swords appears, it means that the querent is ignoring a big perspective and self-reflection. Currently, you are defining your interests too narrowly. If you keep going or act alone, you will encounter obsessions again.
Sometimes, the card means the need to put your own concerns first. In case you are taken advantage of or abused, the best way is to find a way to free yourself and take good care of your body and mind. And when it is your turn to act, step up confidently and demand fairness. However, you also need to be equipped with the clear awareness that if you hurt someone in the process, that victory will not really be perfect.
On the other hand, the Five of Swords Mermaid Tarot represents opposition such as quarrels or wars. The link between you and the individual or group is broken, which causes the relationship to encounter great discord. You may be the one to suffer or do things like fraud, crimes, or lies. Anyway, you still need to keep your vision broader and consider who you are to come up with the best solution for yourself and those around you.

The upright Five of Swords appears to signal confusion in your life or some people’s. You should not shy away from this nor do you feel like you have to say what is on your mind.
