Dont freak out at this card, haha. This deck is very confronting but not without just cause. The Five of Skulls reversed talks to us about our shadow sides. Anxiety, loss, worry, and despair resonate with this card. Upright, it offers a glimmer of hope, here however, hopelessness is found. I want to tell you that you are NOT hopeless! You are going to make it through whatever you are facing. You feel utterly helpless and paralyzed by fear. But that's not true. You are brave and powerful!!!
