Theme of the Week: 5 of Wands
There are many different types of conflict in literature. There is the classic Man vs. Man, then as we delve deeper, Man vs. Self, and Man vs. Nature. If we reach further, we can find examples of Man vs. Machine, and even Man vs. Fate, or the supernatural. These are all conflicts that seem somewhat outside of ourselves when reading literature, yet they are all based on reality. We all suffer from insecurities and inner conflict, we have disagreements with others, sometimes we just struggle to keep our window sill rosemary alive. We have all experienced the trying times of Mercury Retrograde delaying our travel plans, or not sending that urgent e-mail. Then there are those existential thoughts that stream through our consciousness. Is he/she the one? Is there really any meaning to all of this? This week will be filled with discourse, but try not to think of it in the traditional way. Try to see it as the grapple of the Hero’s Journey. These are the necessary trials and tribulations, whether inner or outer, that are ultimately the key to taking you from point A to point B. This week is all about working through and up to your moment of enlightenment.
