The Fives aren’t everyone’s favorite cards in tarot—but they are at The Word Witch! The Fives are full of challenge, conflict, and contraction, but they are also where we meet our biggest opportunity to learn, grow, and spiritually evolve. This episode, we explore the Hierophant, Temperance, and the Minor Fives, and Claire shares why they chose to name their in-progress tarot deck Fifth Spirit Tarot. (Hint: it’s because of the Fives!)
Tarot Cards in this episode: the Hierophant, Temperance, 5 of Wands, 5 of Swords, 5 of Cups, 5 of Pentacles.
