The Five of Swords 5
The Five of Swords 5 in the Transformational Tarot deck illustrates how the confusion in our thinking keeps us from making the appropriate choice when various alternatives seem possible. Most of us have enough trouble deciding between two ideas, when there are many ideas jostling for primacy we can become completely immobilized. Or we can push such decisions away and ask others to decide for us. Or we can say that we?ll think about it tomorrow or next week. If we put it off long enough things may well be decided without our input and to our detriment.
What can help here is to put all those conflicting ideas out in front of us, and then put them in some sort of order. Which idea goes to the top of the list, which comes a close second and so on. Once we see them clarified we can move beyond the mental conflict and make decisions that will work well for us.
