When the Five of Earth card appears, awareness is of key importance. Something is not right. Someone is not as they seem. Someone lies and deceives, and that someone could be you. Could it be that you are lying to yourself and those around you? It might not be a deliberate deception, but it is a deception nonetheless.
The Five of Earth can also symbolize the devil inside, who encourages you to take the easy eay out, to look for options that lead to instant gratification, instead of putting in the hard work that yields enduring success. Is his voice in your head and heart, inspiring you to risk everythhing for the chance of a quick buck or a momentary thrill? Think twice. If you choose to take a gamble now, you risk losing it all.
This trickster is the beautiful ‘con man’, whose sweet words encourage you to believe your own lies and deceptions. He caters to your weaknesses and addictions, dealing out easy lies instead of hard truths. He tells you to blame others for all that is wrong – disappointments, heartache, past failures, and missed opportunities – instead of taking responsibility for your own choices and actions.
Wherever the deception lays at this time, there may be some basis for your doubts and questions. Your inner voice is telling you to look closer and see beyond selfish desires and blame so you can perceive the truth. Be honest with yourself, or heartache and disappointment may well follow.
