Tarot Wands 5
Five of Wands

Overall meaning
Five of Wands represents arguments, conflicts, battles, competition and disagreements. It means fight, resistance, fight, aggression and temperament.

Five Wands shows five men disputing or fighting each other with their canes. What they are doing is more of an aggressive positioning towards each other than an actual feud. They do not touch each other, but stand in either a defensive or attacking position. Therefore, the image seems light and as if it is a game or display for the men.

At the same time, the five men show that they cannot keep calm, which only reflects the nature of the fire element. The card indicates a time of frustration when it seems as if you have to fight for everything. Everything seems difficult and not much goes as planned.

Five of Wands says something about fighting for the results. You are in sharp competition and you will have to use all your resources if you are to succeed. Your energy flow is possibly blocked or possibly stagnant, which can be expressed by perceiving life as a burden.

You find yourself in a situation between what you want and what the realities are. You may also be in a situation where it is just everyday life that irritates and frustrates you. Basically, you may be anxious about something or the other. Your challenge lies in being with life’s challenges, remembering your inner peace, patience and staying focused.

The card indicates that you are striving hard at the moment – perhaps too much – and that some of your creative power is blocked, striving in vain for new ways of expression.

Other words that describe the Five of Wands are: resistance, ambition, competition, struggle, adrenaline, sports, frustration, strife, conflict, ambiguity, difficulties, striving, anxiety, inhibition and unfulfilled longing.

The tarot card is associated with number 5, which means that you must pay attention to this number in relation to the challenge you are asking the tarot about.

This is often expressed in the way that in the next 5 days | weeks | months | years it will be advantageous for you to free yourself from anxiety or frustration experiences. It will be a time when you find your inner Leo with advantage and express yourself fully – for example through creative activities.

Saturn in Leo. Leo’s creative outward power is blocked or restrained by Saturn. Saturn wants to do everything disciplined and step by step, which is difficult for Leo, who wants to fully express himself.

I take one step at a time. I have confidence that I will probably achieve my goals. I calmly face challenges on my way. I express myself creatively.
