Rider-Waite and Thoth Deck Tarot Card Comparisons: THE FIVE OF SWORDS

  The position of Geburah on the Tree of Life, is the Filth Sephiroth--Severity.  After the 4th Sephiroth, Chesed meaning MERCY, one may ask, "why is there a need for such a nasty- Intelligent-judgmental- corrective force if we are the Child of merciful God?"  Well, for one thing, Severity isn't punishment rather it is easily explained as cutting away the unworthy bits of definition that we have gathered as cloudy negative thoughts, so that we are the original bright child of Goddess/God; but with more discretion. What many of us fail to understand, is that if all the definitions given us, by our society, belief systems,peers and cultures are not really us; THEN WE CAME IN ALREADY KNOWING ourselves! This is yet another reason "to be like the children".
` Yes it is true, dear ones, truth is made manifest as a known thing. And we are known into being, thus we never came seeking our truth.
The Soul already Knows who you are. That is how one becomes manifest---by putting knowledge into form! The Created, are ideas loved into being, not a being who seeks definition!  Ideas are known form, whereas thought is just definition of a form that is previously created. Each of us is a Spirit/ God-image who proves idea by making it manifest. To be is to be proven.

It is often easy to forget that the physical brain is not "you", it is a wetware computer whose data is definitions of things by number and language. Those definitions are made after Self has already been created, thus they are classified as illusions, not Truth!
Geburah, with all her strength, severity and tough love, helps us remember who we really are, and not what we are made to pretend to be.
The Thoth Five of Swords, is known as Defeat, or Lord of Defeat. Being that the Five of Swords is assigned Venus in Aquarius , the normal disruption of Geburah's strength, is not the cause of disaster!  This is because weakness is the cause of the Five of Swords disaster! A weakness brought on by pacifism , and enfeebling sentiment. Maybe even treachery.  The hilts of the swords form the sinister image of the inverted pentagram; where the body's fears have conquered the will by the treachery of sensation, pleasure pain training, and the illusion of definition as truth. Feeling fearful, is often more sensual than feeling willful, since the ever present doubt brought into belief by indoctrination, keeps the scattered will from collecting into force.

Notice that on the Thoth Card, none of the hilts are the same, implying many different weak thoughts assaulting the blue Rose of Wisdom, that was at once whole in the Four and is now all cut to pieces in the Five. Wisdom is scattered to the winds of emotional defeat and blood and poison drips from the thoughts/swords.
The Five of Swords is Geburah in Yetzirah, a severe Mars influence, is now in the Astral World. Now Mars is the consort of Venus in mythology, and mythology is not a story telling a lie, but rather a story relating a truth that is hidden by the inadequacy of definition. The Blue Rose of Venus, which is the Rose of the Cross, can't take the buffeting of the Martian assault.  Along with the nine and ten of Swords, the Five is one of the most destructive events in the deck.

The Rider-Waite card shows the mundane divinatory meaning of, loss, defeat, failure where contest is decided and finished against the person and the victor claims the spoils. The spoils be the swords of defeated foes, strewn over the ground. The "winds of defeat" are implied by the dark wind tattered clouds above and the head bowed stumbling figures in the back ground.
 
When the Five of Swords is thrown during a reading, the querent:
  • Is usually caught in the fears of the past.
  • Is experiencing a self defined prison  of negative, self defeating beliefs.
  •  Defeat on a mental level, bringing humiliation and weakness. 
  • Is involved in a conflict that appears to have been one, but brings unresolved problems.
  • Is trapped in a self designed prison of negative energy from the past.
  • The suggestion here is to give up fighting, swallow your pride and acknowledge  your limitations, and then proceed in a new direction. We are only defeated when we stop seeking another way.  So there is no 5 week or 5 month period of duration suggested here, since it is the querent's own mental negativity that is involved here, and they could change perspective at any time.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.
