I asked the tarot: “What is unholy to me and do I want to remove from my live with violence?” As an answer I have pulled Five of Swords from the Tarot of the Secret Forest. I am afraid it is a gloomy card again. But then it can be because the card shows what is unholy to me and what I want to remove. I thought it would be easy to get the meaning of this card, but it was not. But in the end I got the message, and indeed it is something that makes me very angry.
The hedgehog on the card walks tip toing around the heap of little balls; he seems to hide behind it. Probably he is afraid to say what he thinks and feels and hides therefore behind the heap. I hate being let astray, when people do not say what they mean. And I hate to be mislead out of fear for conflict (with me or with a third party). I won’t say that I never act like the hedgehog, certainly not, often I am more careful than I want to be and I feel ashamed when I catch myself doing it. When it happens to myself, when I am the victim and being led astray, it feels as if the branch on which I am sitting is not there anymore.
