I have been thinking a lot about the 4-5-6 cards in tarot.
Traditionally, 4 is the number of security, and stability. But if you look at some of the 4 cards in tarot, you can see that security and stability sometimes form a comfort zone that is very limiting – we become stuck within a box.
Many tarotists see 5 as a number of conflict, because there is so much conflict depicted in all the tarot fives.
For me, 5 is a number of expansion. We go from our safe comfort zone of 4 to thinking outside the box in 5. Of course this will create some discomfort for ourselves and those around us. We are pushing past boundaries, and leaving the familiar – pressing into something new.
With 6, we experience the victory that comes after winning that internal battle. We have released our limitations.
