Five of Wands

The Fool journeys now to the Five of Wands, where everything appears to be going wrong for him as he encounters other people's perspectives and disagreements. This brings frustration, as everyone wants their say, and setbacks are guaranteed, albeit temporary ones. Everything can be resolved; it is just a matter of talking with others and not ignoring what is on their minds. This is a time for patience, healthy debate, or brainstorming.  

Frustration, frustration, and a bit more frustration thrown in for good measure.

We encounter issues that can seem bigger than they are; they make us see hurdles and issues, which create tension, and we just cannot seem to catch a break with this card. Wands are generous, and with a few people adding to the melting pot, or even more than one idea in your mind battling for supremacy, you can get stuck in a gridlock of ideas, views, and opinions.

Annoyance can be the result, and it can leave us exasperated with too many voices to be content with. Everybody wants to be right, and it can test patience.

Wires get crossed in communication, and we find that we face trivial disagreements and obstacles, which will not feel that small, yet thankfully, just watch and they will disappear quickly.

Expect to disagree with others and even yourself, and cooperation will be limited. Thrashing out our issues will not do any harm, even if feelings do get hurt.

Those are not mountains, they are molehills!

Understanding Tarot Book.
I love it!!!
I jumped to the "Using your Tarot deck" and you're such a breath of fresh air compared to other books I read!
I got the Kindle edition too 🤭, but I really needed the paper copy, and i couldn't be happier! 🤩
Kudos to you for this gem! 🔥❤️🔥
I can't seem to find the right words to express myself now, but I think that you brought warmth and humanity to a practice that had been stereotyped for too long.
Thank you! ❤️


Had a challenging issue which I turned to Pam for, we carefully went through the questions I had and how best to get them slotted into the reading to get the best out of it.

I felt Pam's style was upfront and honest., she managed my expectations from the start. Told me when to expect the reading and the payment section was smooth.

I got what I needed from the reading and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pam's services to anyone.


My book arrived this week. Yes!
The Universal Waite Tarot deck shows Pamela Coleman Smith’s artwork recoloured by Mary Hanson Roberts. The line-art is clean with non-blurry lines and beautifully coloured, of course.

I am house-sitting for my son for two weeks so decided to also buy the ebook from Amazon Kindle. I’ll leave the hardcopy at home so it doesn’t weigh-down my suitcase. It’s a 427 page book, so very thick!
I’ve only read the introduction and The Fool so far. What I like so far, is the way the Fool’s meaning is described in detail, referring to colour, symbols, and zodiac and astrological associations. All important details for me to remember and learn. There is a lot to learn, to enjoy and to gradually remember. I say gradually, as it’s not about memorising but savouring the details. This is not a book with keywords, although there is a “In a nutshell” summation at the end of each long description for the card. The long description (often three pages in length) is followed by two shorter ones (less than one page long) for upright and reversed meanings. In these shorter sections, keywords are in bold-type. It’s far easier to remember them when they’re given in a story-like context rather than as a separate list to memorise.

I can see myself using this book as my primary resource for years!
This began as sharing a photo and ended up as a short review for those who have not yet bought Pam’s book.

My advice is to not hesitate.
