It may seem like you are being challenged or pulled by many different forces - each situation tugging at you like a child at a toy store who desperately wants to show you something - it wants. It's okay because it is through this time of moving up and down the aisles of life that you will stumble upon the thing that will become your sole focus.
The crow of Judgement calls out to those souls that are ready for a rebirth to go inward and claim their history in totality - by doing so they will have the clarity to let go of what will not serve them during this time of transition as they move forward.
In the past position the Judgement card points to a time in your life when you had that feeling that it was time to do something else, you could sense it like a tingling in the gut that gets stronger the closer you get to executing the change. I don't know about you - but a "tingling" feeling is the best way I can describe how I feel when I know that I need to make a major shift - its a combination of three parts an excitement/anticipation combo and one part fear induced nausea.
This may have been committing to a completely new career, or maybe deciding to take on a new life philosophy, one that through many little steps moved you to where you are today. Although not good or bad, successful or unsuccessful - it was the decision made during this time that led you to the here and now.
The crows of the Five of Wands love a little friendly competition as each one "knows" in its heart that it has the best solutions to any problem. It is the ego of each bird that keeps it in the air swinging its baton around in the hopes of changing another's opinion.
At the heart of the matter is this feeling of being confronted by many different options, and opinions. You may be a sounding board for one person's petty drama in the morning and then needed to help someone else with a project later in the afternoon. All the while what you really want to do is get into the car and drive for a day...or five. If you are feeling stressed out - it may not be the worst thing to get away for the weekend and recharge!
One of the crows stands on top of three pentacles showing the other crow how to get to the cherries that are fresh and perfect for eating.
In the future position, the scattered feelings that came with the Five of Wands is lifted and the birds have flown off - however, if there was any benefit to this time it was that you were able to get a clear view on what you want - not just what others want for you.
The Three of Pentacles brings a new sense of conviction for an idea and the desire to learn and grow so that you can move securely and confidently in this new direction. By devoting your energy to this new passion, you create the energy needed to manifest a major positive life change.
"I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it." ~Pablo Picasso
