A Personal Journey Through the Tarot: 5 of Wands
There are times in life when conflict is inevitable. During these times, being able to stand up for ourselves and our loved ones is very important. Being able to fight against injustice and abuse is what drives a healthy democracy. But, as with all styles of fighting, we are more capable of winning with the proper training, discipline and self control. Fighting just for the sake of fighting is unhealthy and puts a strain on personal relationships as well as on personal health. Not only do you need to know when to pick the weapon up, but you also need to know how to wield it.
Today I draw the Five of Wands and reflect upon what it is I am fighting for. Am I fighting for a good reason? Is there someone better qualified for this fight than I am? Do I have what I need to win this fight?
