Thoth Deck Tarot: FIVE OF SWORDS-DEFEAT

What happens to unattended fire? it can either go out or become a conflagration. What happens to non-moving water? It either turns into a mire and goes putrid or evaporates away.
To keep this from happening to Her Force and Form Children, Geburah has invented the Conscious Energy State of Severity-where strife and defeat. supply the "jolt of movement" necessary to get the stationary moving again. It is Tough Love.
Geburah (Severity on the Tree of Life) always supply disruption. In this case, Venus  rules Aquarius which implies weakness rather than excess of strength is the cause of the disaster. In the Five of Swords-Defeat, the intellect has been enfeeble by sentiment and has become overly passive. Treachery may also be implied. The Five of Swords is shown in a sinister state of the inverted pentagram which is a sign of matter dominating the will of Spirit. In this case even more sinister as none of the swords have hilts resemble any of the others, and their blades are bent or broken and give the impression of drooping. As virtue declines (virtue is always being true to your inner self) corruption takes over until all is in disorder. There is no Rose of enlightenment in this card, since it it all destroyed now.
When this card is thrown during a reading the Querent will experience or has experienced over a period of 5 wks or 5 Months, defeat, lies, malice, spite, slander, and evil-speeking. The contest is ended and has been decided against the querent. there is failure, trouble, avarice, grieving after pain (and holding that grief as sacred or  important rather than letting go of the pain and moving on.), laborious, unresting, loss and vileness of nature. A busy body and separator of friends, hating to see peace and love between others. Cruel and cowardly, thankless and unreliable. Clever and quick to thought and speech. Feelings of Pity easily aroused and unendurable. this is the Card of the "Pity Pot",where one is so impressed by their own pain, their life is cnetered around it and they can't heal or move forward. Rather they demand that everyone get down on their knees and worship their pain as a martyrdom of holiness. Instead of ," If you wish to speak to me, Stand, for I'll not kneel to your weakness,," which is a true friend who supports your strength, this Defeated Mind requires you to grovel  to weakness as some proof of holiness. A very "Self absorbed" mental state, that breeds dis-ease and discontent. In such a state of low thinking--the god's will not hear you.
To be able to accept defeat and build from the experience  a success----is the way of growth. Winter may defeat the apple tree.....so it "rests and reconsiders its options" and awaits the Spring with renewed energy. If the apple tree just kept reliving the browning of its leaves and the decay and fall of its apple, it would waste its energy in "painful production" and die. The Five of Cups-defeat reminds us that we must accept our grief as a step towards healing, not a  permanent fear that imprisons us in a "grave of the past" leaving no life for the future. Inaction due to fear is a common disease and easily overcome----just begin! One step begins any journey!
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
