For our last card we have the Five of Wands. Five bug-eyed frogs wearing red capes heft large wooden wands over their heads. Are they jousting with them, or trying to build something? And if trying to build something, wouldn't it help to have a plan or a leader?
Overall, I'd say they are more constructive than aggressive, but the crazed eyes lend an air of madness to the proceedings. I like their red capes, which are a nod to the element of Fire, and suggestive of their dynamism and strength of purpose.
Likewise, the choice of frogs for the suit of Wands is an interesting one. While in no way fiery creatures, frogs are renowned for their creativity and adaptability, which does fit the suit of Wands.
A card, then, of people striving to get something done, but where a lack of organisation, a slight being at counter purposes, may get in the way of efficiency.
Hmm, not a great card for a day when I have a lengthy business meeting scheduled. I take this as a suggestion to try to stay clear in my purpose, and avoid pointless battles.
I am grateful for the Bank Holiday weekend coming up.
