Five of Wands Tarot Card DESCRIPTION: illustration, colors, and symbolism

  • Five of Wands Tarot Card shows five men who are obviously in conflict. The image on the face of the card is one of the most straightforward in the Tarot. Their raised wands are not being used as weapons. The men are waving wands around wildly.  The wands are stopping them from moving forward as they clash with one another. Upon first glance, this suggests confrontation and discord. But, the wands are all either in the air or hitting one another. No wand is striking a person. So, the image can also be interpreted as a friendly competition or showcase of skills. Look to the other cards in your reading to decide if this is a case of healthy competition or something that will bring about a setback.
