A fragile branch pointing downward has snapped and the three leaves below the break are turning brown. The Five of Oaks is a card about disappointment, disconnection, loss or broken plans. The disruption caused by the Five’s energy can be attributed to a temporary loss of resources, or a debilitating ailment of some kind that throws you off your path. A feeling of alienation is present, and there is a strong fear of failure and risk of self-sabotage implied by this card. In a positive light, the Five of Oaks is a reminder to be steadfast and not give in to ominous but temporary obstacles.
