Five of Wands
“Being interesting has been replaced by being identifiable.”
The Five of Wands captures the essence of the ego driven struggle. Consider any landscape where every essential element feels compelled to compete for recognition. Forgetting the only indispensable quality – usefulness– they strive to enforce an arbitrary hierarchy that is neither natural nor productive. In the process of tumbling over one another for Top of the Heap, the initial objective of the group is abandoned. When the Five of Wands appears, it’s time to decide whether or not your efforts have been misplaced.
