Five of Wands

Updated: Feb 19

In Five of Wands, we see five innocent looking boys fighting amongst each other. Are they fighting or practicing a game? Some may say they don’t seem serious about hurting each other with their staff and are probably not even looking into their opponent’s eyes. So, is this a serious fight? Let’s understand more.

Five of Wands Tarot

Five of Wands Meaning - General

Five of Wands as a general meaning is definitely not a card of peace. There is a staff fight amongst the boys - whether it is real or a game, is difficult to say. But there are lessons to be learnt in either case.

This card speaks of conflict or strife – generally a minor one. Just like our routine day-to-day disagreements or arguments. And yet, these do take away our bandwidth and hinder our progress and growth.

Remember, Five of Wands tarot is a competition amongst equals – you can see the boys seem to be the of same age. By that consequence, this card could be speaking of fights between spouses, siblings, friends or colleagues at work.

This might also be about differences of opinion. Which could in fact be a good thing, as diversity of opinions encourages brainstorming and can potentially bring out better solutions to problems. However, if this difference of opinion is coupled with lack of listening, everyone will merely want to express their discontent without trying to understand the other person’s perspectives. And this can lead to nowhere.

Alternatively, you might be feeling pulled apart by different agendas. The energies feel scattered and there might be a need to bring in some structure to the chaos.

Five of Wands need not necessarily be about conflict with people. This card can also indicate simple hassles we go through in life. We all have days when Murphy’s laws seem to hold true. Everything that could go wrong, does! These are situations when we start feeling hassled which impairs our ability to think straight and takes away peace of mind.

Let us look at the Five of Wands in specific contexts of a love tarot reading and career tarot reading. Remember to apply all the above general readings to the below readings as well.

Five of Wands Love

Love Reading for Relationships

Borrowing from the general reading above, Five of Wands in a love or relationship reading indicates some conflict or disagreement. Some frustration or bickering that is causing strife. Or is there internal competition between the two partners?

If you are someone who loves calm and harmony, this card is an advice to find ways to release tension and resolve conflict.

Sometimes, this could also indicate inner conflict. Are you having unresolved issues that is impacting your relationship? Try digging deeper to find a way out.

Love Reading for Singles

If you are single, Five of Wands in love could indicate a chaotic love life. Possibly you seem to be going on a dating spree or dating more than one person at a time. The question you need to ask yourself is whether this is serving you any good. 

On the other hand, it is possible that there is more than one suitor that is vying for your attention. It might be good to resolve this situation and set priorities straight before the situation gets nasty and out of control.

Five of Wands could also be describing an internal state of mind for singles. Are you on a fighting mode currently? Are you being nasty to people who want to date you? Figure out what is bothering you and resolve your internal issues first.

Five of Wands Career & Finance

In the tarot deck, victory in the Six of Wands follows the Five of Wands. So, is Five of Wands an indication of having to fight for victory and success?

Five of Wands in career suggests a phase in your career where you need to deal with certain disagreements, conflicts or hassles. This might test your patience and temperament but is also an opportunity for you to rise above the situation and gain control of it. Seek co-operation from everyone with empathy.

The same situation described above can also be a productive one, where colleagues or teammates could be brainstorming on a challenge or issue. Creative clashes, debates and healthy competition can be encouraged so long as they don’t turn nasty or drag ego in the picture.

Financially, there could be some short-term struggle that you might need to solve for. This might also involve fighting for money, such as a legal case or refund on a purchase or alike.  Try to manage trivialities without getting too bothered or disturbed by them.
