The Five of Worlds – Setback
Just as the earth suffers devastation and disaster, your most beautiful, prosperous, solidly organized projects and plans – on which you depend and bank – encounter setback: a drying up of resources (drought), a sudden ruination (hurricane, forest fire, volcanic eruption), a block (wall)or parting of ways (abandoned village).
Defeat and difficulty are regenerative, as are the earth’s natural disasters. The earth’s healthy new seeds symbolize this new life. For every storm, there is a rainbow. Take a step back – a strategic retreat – to go two steps forward through the newly open door of opportunity. As it is said, make lemonade out of lemons.
