…continued from How to Read Tarot ~ Part 7
Next you read the section called “Meditation” to see what insight it can offer for the Five of Earth:
Do you believe that you deserve health and wealth?
Surrender/Breakthrough: if you can’t surrender you will break, instead of break through.
Ask yourself if either of these questions or statements seem to apply.
The Five in the Major Arcana
Finally you can look at the Major Arcana card for information on the Five in the Major Arcana. The Hierophant/INTUITION card heads up the energy of the Fives. The Hierophant hears the voice of the Higher Self, through his intuition. But first, you must surrender the ego, because the voice of your intuition cannot speak while you are mired in mental confusion or fear.
The herculean task of surrendering at the moment of fear and imminent change takes a lot of courage, but the surrender must presage the breakthrough. In other words, the challenge of the Fives presents you with the price of freedom: courage, which paradoxically can only come when you surrender your ego to the guidance of your Higher Self, and surrender your need to have freedom be what your mind thinks it is.
