Tarot cards came long after the playing cards deck, in 15th century. While playing cards were used in games, Tarot were designed for Psychic readings only. Each Tarot card tells a story about you and your future and past. When you are reading tarot cards, you are connecting with universe on a deep, psychic level, where shadows fall in the dark.
Five Of Swords
The figure in the foreground represents one who has finished the job. The figure walking away has laid down his sword, but he is still not defeated; he merely shows that he knows when to fight and when to retreat. The other figure really is defeated and is weeping over this fact. This card represents three attitudes of mind. It shows that we must discriminate in all matters and stand on our convictions.
