Weaknesses Of The Suit Of Pentacles
Due to the connection with the fire element, the Suit of Wands can contain destructive messages. The Wands Tarot cards are connected with character traits like egoism or impulsiveness.
To push through one’s own goals without consideration for your fellow human beings will sooner or later take revenge. Because without the support of other people, you will not get far in life.
The Wands Tarot cards symbolize a fiery temperament, where even the smallest spark is enough to ignite a firestorm.
Lack of impulse control can lead to rash actions with corresponding negative consequences for ourselves. A heated mind tends to ignore reason and get into risky situations.
In contact with other people, the Suit of Wands Tarot cards indicate conflictual relationships in the private and professional environment.
Such disputes tug at the strength of all involved. Often the boundaries of both parties in dispute are crossed and serious injuries (especially of a mental nature) are inflicted on each other.
Once a fire has started in the form of an argument, it can quickly spread to other people and ignite a real firestorm. Once scorched earth needs a lot of time so that something can grow on it again.
The Suit of Wands Tarot cards admonish you to restrain your inner fire in conflicts so that the world around you is not seized by the flames of anger or retaliation.
