What is the Five of Spades meaning when it appears in a Cartomancy or Tarot reading? Why does everyone see it as a bad sign?
The Five of Spades is a symbol of unforeseen changes in circumstance. You’re playing a role in a larger cosmic game and, if you’re careful, this game is going to work out in your favor.
This card is often interpreted as a negative symbol (some view it as the embodiment of misfortune) but, like all cards in the deck, there’s a much deeper meaning than simple doom and gloom.
This card heralds an opportunity. Yes, if you let this go unheeded then it certainly can mean disaster but there’s an opportunity for true and lasting change here. With this understanding, the Five of Spades can be seen as a wake-up call or warning that something needs to change in order for the person to move forward on their journey. It is not a message to be taken lightly, but it can also offer hope.
Five of Spades in a Tarot Reading
To have your complete spread done for you let me do a free reading on your behalf.
When a Five of Spades arrives during a Tarot spread it signals a time of upheaval and chaos. The comfortable life you’ve been living is about to be upended and you’re being called to face the challenges head-on. This is not a time to shy away from difficulties as ignoring them is going to allow them to win.
Instead, it’s time to rise to the challenge and show the universe what you’re made of.
Are you a pawn in the larger cosmic game or are you a Queen capable of winning the game?
This is how you should be thinking. Are you satisfied with being a small piece in a much larger puzzle or do you want to be the one who affects change?
Remember, the Five of Spades can also be seen as an opportunity. It’s a time for you to face your fears and grow from the experience. This isn’t going to be easy but it’s more than just possible.
The potential change before you can be mindblowing.
