Competitiveness is the love meaning of the Five of Wands Tarot card. When the Five of Wands card rears its head, you can confidently predict that you’re about to engage in competition with a rival at some point in the future.
Sometimes, this card can predict friendly competitiveness; the guys down at the bar with their eyes on the same girl, the football teams, the co-workers after the same promotion will appear as the Five of Wands. The Five of Wands is a brilliant card for those involved in competitive sports. The Five of Wands embodies the energy of sportsmanship.
Other times, battles may not be so fun. Based on surrounding cards in your spread, you can tell the tone of this competitiveness.
The Five of Wands speaks of the strife but not the overall results. With this tension comes an opportunity for you to prove yourself. When the push comes to shove, are you about to sink or swim?
The Five of Wands often warns of conflict which may not appear so dangerous at the time. However, jealousy can soon turn ugly. If you’re the victim of someone else’s envy, this is good; it means you’re doing something right. However, if you’re the one hating on others, this could spell trouble if you’re not channeling your emotions correctly.
There will be times when the conflict of the Five of Wands is imaginary, not real. It can appear at times when you’re too busy watching what other people are doing instead of getting to work in building your own empire. If this sounds like you, use your jealousy as a compass, which highlights the things you want and go from there.
Five of Wands Love Tarot Meaning
The Five of Wands usually makes an appearance in love Tarot readings where the object of your affection is unsure of their feelings. There could be another interest (or another person) in the picture competing for their affections. Therefore, be wary of this in the future.
The Five of Wands does not say if you will end up with your love interest or not; its meaning is elusive. Basically, the cards are predicting that you will have to fight for your partner’s affection either now or in the future. However, your cards cannot reveal for now if your efforts will ultimately pay off. Therefore, I recommend you wait until you have more information and then read on this matter again in the future.
