Five of Wands's Meaning

The Five of Wands is never a welcome card, as long tradition suggests you will be in line for struggle and aggravation. Pay close attention to the surrounding cards to discover clues about which areas of your life will be subject to these conflicts. Expect them to be rooted in competition, and console yourself that a positive solution is not outside your reach. Just be prepared for the possibility that the victory will come at a personal cost.


The battles you have faced has led you to boldness of character. This is a valuable trait, but only in moderation. Facing adversity requires tact, and it may feel as though your progress is too far delayed by the obstacles in your path.


A miscommunication or misunderstanding will pose obstacles to your progress.


There will be an opportunity in the future that requires you to tame your boldness in order to succeed. No one can decide your actions but you, so rely on your strength of will to achieve balanced progress.
