5 of Swords

The middle sword divides the scene. It symbolizes disconnection in itself and is the only one that has remained whole. The “winner’s” sword, decorated with a laurel wreath, seems to be less bent than that of the “loser”, but it is also unusable. The pierced heart shows the “loser’s” certainty of having injured his enemy in the worst possible way. The dark colours in the picture show that it is a matter of something unpleasant. The energetic connection, portrayed by the waves at the top and bottom, has been cut off.
