Animals Divine - Five of Swords – Bat


Image of the card

Symbols*: The bats symbolize death and rebirth. They reemerge into their chamber of safety after fleeing the intense energy of a new day’s sun. Five swords fangle from the cave’s entrance as the bats fly through. The swords symbolize the challenges of passing across a treshold of mental and emotional conflict. The stalagmites and stalactites are reminders of past events resurfacing as hindrances to current situations. The golden light of the sun attempts to pierce thourhg the darkness of the cave or conscious. The bats serve to remind us that we cannot escappe truth, but we must face our fears in order to avoid continued conflicts that may be initiated by irrational behavior.

Description*: Failure to address issues that are residing in the unconscious is projecting itself toward how you are dealing with others. Instead of fortifying new relationships and allowing yourself to be stimulated by mutually beneficial exchanges, you are sabotaging new situations with your own distorted point of view. Your negative behavior is resulting in alienation and the need to retreat to the safe haven of your own domain. Like the bat, you may need to develop better senses when encountering the darker areas of the mind. Try to decipher the meanings of your dreams, where elements of your psyche may be residing.

Keywords: Old fears resurface, challenging situations may arise, failure born out of impetuous behavior

Possible Meaning: Old fears are at surface, again. You may be faced with a series of challenges. Your negative behavior is resulting in alienation and the need to retreat to the safe haven of your own domain. Try to decipher the meanings of your dreams, where elements of your psyche may be residing.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: In this image, we see the bats moving away from the light. Life is a battlefield, being in constant move.


Bat – Transition, Rebirth
A Bat totem appearing in your life is a call for the end of a way of life and the beginning of another. You must face your greatest fears and get rid of the part of your life that no longer is needed. This transition is very frightening for many: "better the devil you know..." But you will not grow spiritually until the old parts are gone. Face the darkness before you and you will find the light in rebirth.
