Divination: Five of Arrows from the Wildwood Tarot

I drew a card for the world from The Wildwood Tarot. It was the Five of Arrows, a suit that corresponds with Swords in more traditional decks. As you can see from the picture, this card represents frustration. The meaning offered in the book that comes with the set says:
"Unfocused energy or anger that leads to the archer releasing inaccurate arrows or lashing out in an uncontrolled manner and missing the target, wasting valuable resources and energy."
This makes me think of recent events misfiring, including the paint protest at Stonehenge and the removal of statues at Chalice Well Gardens in Glastonbury. I'm sure the people behind them had the best intentions. However, both caused controversy without any obvious indication that the enterprises were well thought out or usefully productive.

A solution, according the reading points for this card, is to take a deep breath, steady the mind and try to see the real target more clearly before taking further action. Cool thinking and precision are what's needed.
