In yet another change of ambience, here we see four gunslingers, a woman and three men. The woman in the back right corner aims at the man in the back left corner, while the man in the front right aims at the foremost guy, front left, who nonchalantly holds two guns. The splatter marks on this image work well, reminding me of the “kapow”s, “splat”s and “boom”s of the old batman TV shows ;) Or perhaps they represent the blood trail left from previous gun fights...
I rather like the cowboy feel to this card, and it certainly gets across the message of quarrels and competition. There isn’t really a feel of working together which can sometimes be seen in the Five of Wands, though I guess they could represent outlaws and lawmen, maybe depending on who’s wearing a hat :D Overall, though, I get more of a sense of fighting your corner against all comers.
I head back home today, then off to see my therapist. Perhaps, in this, I see the quarrels that go on within myself (being a double Gemini). Should I do this or that? I feel this, but I also feel that, which one would I do best to follow? If I think of this card more in the sense of work struggles (I’m so glad I didn’t get this card yesterday!) then perhaps it’s about having to fight my corner to make sure things are okay for the Lenormand workshop on Saturday. I may well have to go to the shop in person to check out the technical arrangements, as the people there haven’t given me a clear answer as to what kind of connectors I’ll need. I really don’t want to turn up on Saturday to find I can’t use my slides or camera!
I am grateful for the reminder to watch my own back.
