My card of the day for 1st March is the 5 of Swords which I have drawn from the Tarot de Marseilles.
The 5 of Swords can be a card of contradiction, of decision and of choices. Amongst the choices that this card may offer could be to choose whether you are a victim or a survivor. Like quite a few of the cards I published during February this card could be suggesting that it is time to put yourself first; but it can also suggest that you could be putting you own interest over that of others in your life.
This is a card of contradiction; but only because of the choices it implies. You could feel that you are in a situation that you cannot win; or you could believe that you are in control and powerful. Neither of these could be healthy and I believe that this card may be asking you to decide once and for all if you are truly powerless or if you perhaps enjoy the feeling of power that can come with the idea of being controlled by someone else.
Today is a day to be true to your self but also to be truthful with yourself. You may very well feel that you are entering, or have just entered a hostile period; but is that true or could it be simply your perception? Only you can decide but this card could be suggesting that you already know which way you want to go.
