The Five of Staves (or Wands) turned up today, on the Friday of a three-day-weekend for our Independence Day holiday.
When we perceive a sudden change in our lives, it is often startling. We forget that in this world change is the only constant.
Fives represent change, disruptions, disorganization. This Five of Wands, in particular, is the card of confusion and scattered energy.
This card is an example of a card turning up that I’m having trouble relating to my life, because I’m not aware of even a hint of any of contention or conflict which it represents.
The Five of Swords is the card of change and conflict.
