High arcan Moon and low arcan Five of Swords combination - Deception and dishonesty behind the scenes, watch your back.
Moon tarot card

Card 1 - Moon

When we encounter the Moon, we see a path that leads off into the distance. On either side of the path stand a wolf and a dog, representing our animalistic nature - one is civilized, and the other wild and feral. There is a crawfish that is crawling out of the pond from which the path stems from. In the distance, we can see two towers flanking the central path, once again alluding to the doubles visible in this card. Everything in this card seems to echo the other, as if to allude to two possibilities. When we walk down the path, we walk the fine line between conscious and unconscious, between the tamed side of civilization of the dog, and the forces of nature represented by the wolf.  The towers on the opposing ends represent the forces of good and evil, and their similarity in appearance can allude to the difficulties that we face in distinguishing between them. 

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Seven of Cups (can cloud realistic thinking) Two of Swords (indecision, in two minds) Nine of Swords (anxiety). Watch for The Devil, Five of Swords, and High Priestess to reinforce aspects of secrecy or possible deceptions.

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Emperor (stability, logic and rationale) Justice (balanced mind)

Moon combinations
The Moon isn’t usually a positive companion, as it tends to muddy the waters and create instability. Watch for a positive card following to release the situation and bring clarity to the matter.

Five of Swords tarot card

Card 2 - Five of Swords

The Five of Swords card depicts a young man who has a very convenient look of contempt on his face. He is looking at the enemies that he has managed to conquer. There are five swords that he possesses – which he has taken from the other combatants who are in the card. The two other figures are walking away from him in a slow manner with a sense of loss and sadness. Above them, the sky is tumultuous and cloudy, which indicates that not everything is well, despite the fact that the battle is already over.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Differing aspects of secrecy can be found with The Devil (not usually very healthy by most regards) or The Moon (deceptions). The High Priestess has a secrecy aspect but normally beneficial. 

Five of Swords combinations
Surrounding cards should help provide further information for the root of the problem, in some cases a King or Queen preceding may provide clear identification of a person involved that can’t be trusted. Ideally, you want to see a positive card following to show it comes to nought or is overcome.
