Venus (love, values, beauty) is currently in Aquarius. This sign/planet combination is associated with the 5 of Swords. No one likes getting this card; how can it possibly relate to Venus?
This card is sometimes associated with betrayal, but I find "limits" to be the more accurate description. The 5 of Swords represents what you have no control over; there's only so much you can do, and it's those limits that make things unpleasant.
The reminder? Venus in Aquarius is not comfortable. You're stepping out into the unknown, and Venus prefers things to be peaceful and predictable. But Aquarius is not predictable, or even controllable. Also, Aquarius is traditionally ruled by Saturn (limits), emphasizing that this is not a warm, fuzzy sign. There's a sharply delineated clarity that is less about freedom, and more about logic.
Fives in Tarot are all about conflict and instability, and this card is no different. But know that when you pull it, fighting won't change anything.
