3 to 5 grouping


It's about the 8oc, the 8os and the 9 ow
All three of them have a 3 to 5 or a 5 to 3 grouping (8os: 3 swords left side and 5 swords right side, 9ow: 5 wands left side and three wands right side,...)

I was thinking about if there's any meaning behind that. On many cards there seems to be a little hint in the direction of the solution depicted.
Could it be that way?:
The 3 means that some kind of (inner/outer) movement is already happening. The time of total stagnation is over.
The 5 means that some kind of (re-)connection is needed (spiritual?), that would be the Hierophant. Or it means coming back to life again (5 senses).

All 3 cards have to deal with what was happening in the past and need some kind of new or fresh perspective.

The divisions seem to be numeric/Kabbalistic in origin. Three is the number of Understanding, of assimilation of the element. Five is the number of action or desire. In the eight of cups, the person had understood and has taken action, in essence, gone in a new path. Same thing with the eight of swords, only here this may be inverted because of the woman's constraints.

Four is the number of solidity, of firm foundations, so in the Nine of Wands you have that solidity, but the card is so removed from the purity of the Ace that it has become cruel and oppressive (an excess of force) so the five wands of desire are there, but it is doubtful if the person can really take action.

Thanks! That makes sense.
