This weeks’ card is the 5 of Wands, a card of senseless fighting and struggling. It interesting because the number of the week is 6, a number that ensures victories. Therefore, it seems that this week is a week that tells us that if we focus on what we’re thankful for rather than on what we don’t have, we’ll see how blessed we really are. It’s tempting to believe that life is nothing but struggle and suffering but that’s just not the case. Life is what you make of it and the reality that you live in is the reality that you choose to manifest.
Mantra: Hell is not a place; it’s a state of mind.
