In the context of work, the Five can show that you may be your own worst enemy. Don’t expect the entire system to be changed just because you believe it should be different. How you speak your mind is as important as what you say. There may be some unfairness at play in your work world. Be sure that your behavior is impeccable.

Card Meanings: Self-Sabotaging Behaviour, Lack Of Communication, Deception, Abuse, Standing Up For Yourself, Self-Sacrifice, Crime, Cowardliness, Assault, Serious Conflict, Empty Victory, Hostility, Surrender, Murder, Violence, Walking Away, Fighting Back, Victory, Intimidation, Bullying, Rape, Change, Defeat, Aggression, Underhanded Behaviour, Overcoming Challenges

When the Five of Swords appears, you are likely to find yourself with some mixed feelings about life in general and about a few people in particular. Don’t ignore these, but don’t feel like you have to speak every word you’re thinking and feeling either, as you could ruin the very things that you want the most – such as close, intimate relationships with your friends and lover. Think several times before you really let someone have it even if they deserve it. Pick your battles.
