Endurance within Strength/Discipline.
In order to persevere through difficult challenges and achieve our goals, we need to attain a level of inner strength and discipline. Today the Five of Wands cautions us about what may happen if these values turn to stubbornness and we become overly set in our ways. If we are too disciplined to see other options or opportunities, we can create tension and conflict within ourselves and our interactions with others. Fives signify adjustments, and as we reach the middle of the week of gevurah, we are reminded that we must cultivate strength but always balance it with different energies depending on the circumstances.
