My apologies for misquoting the Ten Commandments. This post is not about forgiving that person who tried to stab you. Think about an enemy’s role in your life. In 3 words, 𝙏𝙃𝙀𝙔 𝙋𝙐𝙎𝙃 𝙔𝙊𝙐. Some push you over a Cliff and others to great heights! It’s the second variety that I wish to reveal through my interpretation of the 5 of wands.
Pause and consider for a moment the person who crosses you, who tells you that you don’t have it in you, who undermines your abilities or worse dismisses you as irrelevant. The ones who indulge in competition and the ones you hate and call the ‘enemy’. But are they really? A diamond is just a lustreless stone till it’s buffed and polished by another diamond giving it a shine that imparts great value to it. Where it might be mistaken for a pebble in its natural state, it sells for millions once you rub the hell out of it! It’s the same with people. We all need something to abrade us for our light to shine through. The five of wands shows some people fighting, most likely peers as they all seem to be holding the same rod in their hands. On closer examination you’ll see that they are going through the ‘motions ‘of conflict. They are challenging each other, forcing the other to get creative in defending themselves. Wands are a suit of creativity and energy after all! There is a sense of Upmanship without the knife-in-the-back routine! The 5 of wands turns up when there is competition at your workplace or petty conflicts in your life. They are not necessarily life-disrupting. But they do cause you to have to look at various ways in which you can fight the ‘enemy’. Here the enemy is your catalyst for becoming more ambitious and working harder to keep your place. When this card turns up in a love reading, it might show multiple suitors vying for your attention or you having to stave off multiple people to get the one you have your heart set on. This card is also frequently associated with high energy levels, because the challenges faced, make you bring you’re A-game to the table. Your ‘enemy’ has irritated you enough for you to go above and beyond, harnessing a lot of live-wire energy to get the better of them. If you are a lover of Action-packed movies you would have seen how the ‘villain’ forces the Hero to look deeper inside himself and realize his untapped Potential! The 5 of wand tells you to accept the challenges in your life, welcome strife and conflict with a curious heart, let every person who opposes you make you stronger and wiser. The 5 of wands tells you to…… ♥ ♥𝙇𝙊𝙑𝙀 𝙏𝙃𝙔 𝙀𝙉𝙀𝙈𝙔 ♥ ♥ #TarotWithShilpa#5ofwands#tarotwithatwist#NewAgeWisdom
