Five of Wands Description

The Five of Wands can mean “Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!” You knew this had to happen. Life was too good in the house of ambition and drive. Here we simply have too much testosterone, and too much money and ease, which led to people carving out their own mini-empires. Five young men, all shouting, glaring, worrying, and examining their “staves” as they each test the limits of their power, or prepare to be set upon by others.

Chaos meets ambition and excess energy in this card. The duality of the number five blends with fire to make times “interesting.”

Five of Wands Traditional Meaning

Look closely at the players in the five of wands card. One man guards against another who makes a proclamation, while another looks up in worry. The central character wonders of the quality of his staff and his destiny with it while the last holds his staff high in defiance so as not to be left out of the “fun.” Everyone has their own idea of how things should be done, and this is what happens when those ideas come into contact with each other. This card represents a madhouse, a situation that is devolving into a circus. Egos flare and while some work to find harmony, others prance and dance to their own tunes. Step lightly (or run!) at this time. Let cooler heads prevail.
