Letters From the Thoth Tarot
Five of Disks
I like the behind the scenes correspondences of this card - Mercury in Taurus - which in a horoscope sense is characterized as practical, patient and conservative - but! This card sits in Geburah and that adds a stressful side to that stability, which gives you Worry - as in, "What am I getting into that I may not be able to get out of?"
Kind of looks like a set of gears working together to create a bigger whole. Even if we can't see the bigger bits which fall off the card. the five hubs form an averse pentagram and that bottom one is the black egg of spirit which points this card to the darker side of things - the triumph of matter over spirit.
What that all adds up to is too much worry over the material that causes us severe stress and anxiety. Instead of letting that freeze us up, we need to work with it and realize that we can deal with it and we are in control! Break down the obstacles, organize things with lists to see what you can do and find workable solutions for them.
