A Walk Through the Thoth Tarot
Five of Wands
Crowley quite liked this card a lot - it is one of only three cards where he left his mark on it. (the seven pointed star/Mark of the Beast on the orb at center) This card goes all over the map, Leo is happy in Geburah (both are fiery) and Geburah gives us motion and strength/activity. But Saturn gives us a resistance that can feel heavy. Just looking at it you can see the light wands with a fiery energy, but a heavy wand blocks it from going anywhere.
There is energy but also frustration as if we just can't seem to get moving with any progress. This happens from time to time but if we realize that and remind ourselves that it will pass - we can try to find the patience and the humor to wait it out. There are other things we can do while we let the frustrating bits simmer until they are ready to go!
