The Five of Wands comes back for a second look today, and the flanking cards remind us that self knowledge is what we may be struggling with. If there is
a struggle, why is there a struggle; do we not know our own hearts? Being able to look at an issue openly and honestly sounds simple, but is very difficult for many of us. We are distracted continuously by habit patterns, inherited and taught, fears and desires…. making a decision about what to do, can hold us in torment for days, weeks, months, years, even years. We are so afraid of missing out on something that we can be caught in endless struggle, a struggle with ourselves, and miss what is really happening. Today, recognise that peace comes from knowing your own heart, and by honouring your own truth. Concerning yourself with the paths of others will do you no favours today, and you will not be thanked for it, for it is time to attend to your own house, and to build your kingdom there.
