Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 5 of Swords: & The Jungian Tarot- 5 of Swords: Rash Decision

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth- Five of Swords:
Defeat, because of the 5th Sephira-Geburah, whose meaning is Severity. Thus Geburah,#5, always produces disruption to any suit.
Zodiacally, the Thoth 5 of Swords has Venus  ruling Aquarius; such a ruling produces a passive weakness rather than an excess of strength. Treachery may also be implied, the normally cutting edge wit is also enfeebled by sentiment, making treachery even more disastrous to the person.
Inverting the pentagram, is a sinister sign of  "things being turned upside-down", where thoughts of success have been defeated by unseen severity. The Thoth Deck 5 of Swords, also represents "self-defeating" thoughts, as the hilts of the 5 swords are individually different, implying confused thinking, making matters even worse.

The Swords are 'drooping" and chipped, representing old thoughts being kept long after their usefulness; thoughts, that never worked in the first place, the combination of which can only bring defeat.The Great Balancing Blue Rose of the Mother (Wisdom), is totally missing from this card, and only the "blood" of Geburah forms the pentagram outline. This is the Cleansing Blood, that destroys the old, putrid and useless "software" of the personality, in-order to build anew. As you can see, this is a severe action to a personality whose denial is its sole support.
This is all very sinister, but as luck would have it, it is the beginning of an understanding that past "self thoughts" are either too dependent on the reactions of others to our self, and/or by seeking self-value through others, we are unable to be ourselves. By serving two masters, reacting to thoughts of other's and our own, we can only arrive defeated in purpose.

The lesson here, is that you've been created because you are good enough for The Divine Creative! By seeking approval from those who cannot build you nor have control over their own identities, you can never be the you that was created in the first place! I AM Me, is our Trinity of Self....Not I Am "wana-be" somebody, which produces "I Ain't"!  The self consciousness that is a "Me", is the invention of  I AM's (The Divine Creative) self-awareness and is a understanding full of possibility, so it is okay to experiment with self-identity but there is a caveat; It's okay to experiment with your self identity, but that must be an active dynamic not a reactive one! Just remember the axiom, 'think ill be ill, think well be well" ...You've already been well thought of----that is why you exist!

It really is okay to love being you; after all you are a wholly and successful Spirit who has a Being on all Ten Planes of the Tree of Life!

As stated the position of Geburah on the Tree of Life, as the Filth Sephiroth--Severity. One may ask, why is there a need for such a nasty- Intelligent-judgmental- corrective force if we are the Child of The Divine Creative, with all the inheritance implied? This necessary Severity is easily explained as cutting away the unworthy bits, so that you are the original you; Image of The Divine Creative. But what many fail to understand, is that if all the definitions given one, by their society, belief systems and cultures are not one's identity, THEN WE CAME IN ALREADY KNOWING OURSELVES!
`
Yes it is true, dear ones, truth is made manifest. Therefore, your psyche never came seeking your truth, nor to find out who you are, the Soul/Psyche already Knows that! By putting knowledge into form is how you became manifest! You are Defined into being, not a being who seeks definition! You are a Divine Creative/Psyche who proves definition by making it manifest!
Therefore, the severity of Geburah, helps us remember who we really are, and not what we pretend to be.

The Thoth Five of Swords, is also known as Defeat, or Lord of Defeat. Being that Venus is in Aquarius here, 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.

 Again, the hilts of the swords form the sinister image of the inverted pentagram; where the self-conscious fears have turned "upside down" the will-to-be, by the treachery of sensation, i.e fear of pain. Feeling fearful, is often more sensual than feeling willful, since the ever present doubt brought into belief by pleasure/pain indoctrination, keeps the will from collecting into force.

 Skry the card and you may notice that 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, is now all cut to pieces in the Five. Wisdom is scattered to the winds of emotional defeat and blood and the poison of inferior thoughts drip from the swords of Mind.

The Five of Swords is Geburah in Yetzirah, a severe Mars influence, is now in the Astral World. In Roman mythology, Mars is the consort of Venus in. We should understand that mythology is not a story telling a lie, but rather a storied lie relating a truth.

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.  Here, loss, defeat, failure where contest is decided and finished against the person.
 
The Jungian Tarot-5 of Swords: Rash Decision, has an upper sky of Martian Red, implying rash action and ambitious thought. The Air/mind element of this card is implied in the clouds.
Here is represented, unconsidered thought and spontaneous, if not rash, action. With little or no hesitation, such action can be either "good" or "bad", considering the circumstances.

Since this is rash action could also involve the intense fertility of Mars, marriage or relationships rashly entered is also implied by the Jungian 5 of Swords.

Finances can also be implied, as one may rashly purchase what they cannot really afford, or make a business commitment, such as, signing a contract, or creating a partnership while not really "reading the small print".
Cooperation of all parties, would make this a positive decision, but usually this is not the case, as usually this rash action is a disastrous choice. Rivalry may occur as emotions clash and this could mean a broken partnership, or contract and even broken promises. Here, even death of a partner or friend may also occur.

When the Thoth 5 of Swords card is thrown during a reading,
  • The querent is usually caught in the fears of the past.
  • They are experiencing a self defined prison  of negative, self defeating beliefs.
  • Here is defeat on a mental level, bringing humiliation and weakness.
  • 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.  Without further action, there is a 5 week or 5 month period here, since it is the querent's own mental negativity that is involved here. However, they could change perspective at any time.

  • For the next or the past five weeks, or five months; defeat, loss, malice,spite, slander, and all modes of evil speaking.
  • There is contest finished and decided against the person, whose thoughts of defeat, anxiety, and trouble may be generated by this defeat or help its cause.
  • The 5 of Swords also means grieving unrelentingly after pain and loss, such as a death of a partner or friend.
  •  There are issues of  malicious, slandering, lying, and tale-bearing thoughts.
  • The presence of a busy-body who  enjoys separating friends; one who hates to see peace and love between others.
  •  Clever and quick in thought and speech, yet cruel and cowardly, is also suggested.
  • Not only could all these negatives be thought by another, but they could also be inner thoughts of the querent towards themselves. The very episode  of low self esteem.
