The 5 of Wands
Good morning everyone. Let's look at the Fives today - change and disharmony
The Fives in the Tarot – change and disharmony
The stability of the number four is disrupted by adding one to it. Five is the number of change, movement, instability and struggle. The meanings of the fives often relates to issues of conflict, decisions, disappointment and problems in general. In the outgoing positive energies of Wands there can be arguments and chaos, in Swords temporary setbacks or feelings of losing a battle. In the passive suit of cups, disappointment and set backs in relationships are often characteristic and in pentacles financial hardship, struggle and losses. So the fives are a tricky transient sort of energy.
Five of Wands – Remember wands is the element fire, ambition, drive.
Upright: The optimism and enthusiasm of the fire energy means that the problems, conflicts and annoyances of the five can be overcome. Daily nuisances do cause set backs but the hassle of this is not severe. You may actually be excited to deal with the challenges of these irritations and may obtain a sense of satisfaction in struggling with the difficulties and overcoming them. Keywords – Minor problems and struggles
Reversed: More serious obstacles and disagreements are indicated. Arguments, squabbling and conflict can be the case with a particular rival or competitor causing headaches at work. There may be a power struggle with someone being very unfair. Keywords: rivalry, fighting and disruption.
When you are thinking of this card see if you can relate it to a situation of your own or to someone you know who is experiencing this kind of energy. I can always think of at least one person who is experiencing the energy of the card I am focusing on. The good news with this disruptive energy is that the situation tends to pass quickly and the issues become resolved. It resolves more slowly in the suit of cups and pentacles but when the hassles and arguments pass with the five of wands you know there is stability and triumph ahead with the 6 of wands coming..
Have a great day! ♥️🏵️
