Just a quick card of the day today.
The 5 of Wands from the Mythic Tarot by Liz Greene
The 5’s in all Tarot pips is a challenge number. It is half way from 1-10 and always indicates obstacles, tests, roadblocks, difficulties, struggles, feeling caught in a bind.
In the Thoth Tarot it has Saturn in Leo as the associated planet and Sign and it is the fist Decan of LEO from July 22-August 1st.
I have this Mythic Tarot deck: According to the book it shows the Greek Myth of Jason’s battle with the dragon which guards the golden fleece. Jason fights the beast with two flaming wands and he is assisted by his lover and helper the sorceress Medea, daughter of the King of Colchis who has been in possession of the magical fleece. Three carries three flaming wands.
The five of wands shows the struggle against the lower reptilian Draconic instincts of the brain as well as in the culture and society. They are powerful and horde their treasure. They are like the Bildenbergs, the Federal Reserve, Putin or any powerful country corporation or head of state. Dragons refuse to change. They horde the jewels which in natural law must be in circulation to encourage growth. The hero or heroine must use their instincts, and Leo like will power and courage as well as the powers of the High Priestess or Sourceress to assist in outwitting the dragons who refuse to grow. Dragons symbolize fear.
The dragon represents the fear of change, the flat-earthers, the right wingers, the Tea-Partiers of the world, the Republicans, Donald Trump, the Patriarchy, the blind faithful religious followers, all religious groups who obey an outside authority of any type of Church, based on antiquated ideas, a Luddite, insular, racist, sexist, resistant to change person or group. We as the heroes and heroines must overcome these anti-life parts of ourselves and in the outside world.
We can all see how valid this particular card is in relationship to the world. Game of Thrones is partly so popular because of the magical appeal of dragons. If the dragon can be tamed rather than killed, its powers are really magnificent. Dragons lend us the ability to fly, breathe fire, they are the masters of many elements and worlds. They are ancient archetypes, dinosaurs, reptiles, they symbolize our own biological evolution of consciousness on the planet earth.
