The 5 Staffs is indeed an interesting card, depicted by a hand with 5 flaming finger tips while the body of the fingers appear to be scorched. As pointed out in the post above it is named the Burning Hand and relates to creative energy.

This card makes me think of trying to do too much, allowing all that creative energy to burst forward in an uncontrolled manner so that instead of achieving whatever it was that one wanted to do they end up creating difficulties and obstacles. It can illustrate here how when we are not disciplined in putting our thoughts into action and by allowing that burning desire to take over, it actually shows us the problems/struggle that may arise in translating those thoughts into something material.

As Lisa pointed out in the section on 5's it is the element that adds the spiritual unity to the material wholeness expressed by four so perhaps this burning hand talks of a burning desire and the energy needed to expand and explore, but all spiritual growth does not come without some challenge and as this card suggests here, one needs to use their creative energy in a structured way or they may just get burned.
