5 of Wands as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: Be smart & roll with the punches


The mystics talk of creativity as one of the most important things we can do for ourselves and our souls. Osho talked extensively about its benefits. And yet today, your attempts at creativity will meet with resistance that may be internal or external.

The 5 of Wands talks of struggles, obstacles, disagreements even, but it doesn’t talk of fatality, of an end or an impossibility to begin or complete your tasks today, just that you will meet with resistance and that will frustrate the hell out of you.

If your task can wait till tomorrow, leave it aside. If not, put it aside for now and come back to it later. It may be a tricky day, but it won’t be a terrible one. Be smart & roll with the punches – use your creativity to find your way round them & don’t engage.
