Five of Wands

Five of Wands

Prepare for a fight with your best friend. Remember: once you let words loose, you can’t take them back.

Your Life Reading

Relationships

Every relationship has its ups and downs; no two people can be together for any length of time without some friction. Without making things personal, air your grievances. Share how you feel. If you feel a confrontation coming on, ask yourself what triggers it and why.

Work

If your workplace lacks harmony, getting things done requires far more time and effort. Create an atmosphere where people feel free to share what they really think. Avoid the blame game; talk in terms of what should happen...and what happens when the system breaks down.

Spirituality

It's easy to feel spiritually connected when meditating in a tranquil garden. But how can you maintain your balance when surrounded by emotionally-charged chaos? Remember: you are not your emotions. Withdraw. Breathe. Save anger for those few transgressions worthy of such a powerful emotion.

Personal Growth

What makes you angry? How do you respond when you loose your cool? Going berserk isn't the answer. Swallowing your feelings won't work either. Find constructive, level-headed ways to say what you need to say before you reach the boiling point.

Suit Number: 5

Significant Times or Dates

Between July 22nd and August 1st.

Symbols and Insights

In RWS-inspired decks, five figures confront each other, Wands in hand. Are they fighting? Are they dancing? Are three watching while the other two battle to the death? Waite claimed the youths could be engaged in either sport or strife, or even a "sham fight." It's worth asking whether or not your conflict, represented by this card, is the problem...or just a symptom.

How might meekness (as opposed to confrontation) work in your situation? How might changing yourself change the outcome of this particular battle?

We're quick to see the errors of others, but slow to understand how our own actions might contribute to confrontations. How have your actions contributed to the crisis?

Remember the stable Four of Wands? Now, someone comes along and thrusts an intrusive new Wand into the mix, shattering the delicate balances that gave rise to celebration. Will you let the Wands topple? Or work to restore balance somehow?
