Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Five of Swords.
Introduction and Meaning of the Card
With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean there is a need to examine the motives and intentions behind your behavior.
My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week
Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is to take the time to track in your journal your behavior and honestly determine the motives and intentions behind them. Ask yourself if this aligns with your core values and if they serve you in a healthy and functional way. If they don’t, ask yourself what needs to shift so they do.
