The fight is on! The Five of Wands indicates that you are about to be immersed in a competition, or an intense activity that feels like a contest—lots of action and rivalry. You can overcome your opponents, but you must act with intention and focus.

In a reading, this card can sometimes mean a minor injury received in the course of physical activity, so be careful out there—don’t move so fast that you do something foolish. In matters of business or the heart, others want what you want…but the challenge excites you and you know you have what it takes to achieve your goals.
