In general:
Ignoring distractions; avoiding time-wasters, bailing out of dramas and assorted chaos

The Five of Wands reflects part of the Mercury Retrograde experience – the frustration part. It’s the chaos response –  the breakdowns in communication that lead to upset and confusion. This card is suggesting that because of some technical delays, you may get stuck on peripheral or personnel issues and lose focus of the big picture. This is a gentle reminder not to get caught up in the drama around the confusion, but instead, be the beacon of patience and practicality. Make a list of those things with deadlines that matter and spend time rebuilding those foundations. Don’t worry about finger-pointing, it’s a waste of your energy to be indulging in drama and it won’t get you where you really want to go. Follow your heart to what really matters and let go of the rest.
