Tarot of Lombardy (Ferndinado Gumppenberg 1810): Five of Wands
Wands are also referred to as Staves, Staffs, or Batons. They correspond to the playing card suit of Clubs, and many early tarot decks depict this suit as wooden clubs. This suit represents the element Fire, and the social class of Peasantry. Wands are considered a Masculine suit. Wands typically represent creative or entrepreneurial projects, information, travel, and will - whether it be free will, or strength of willpower.
The Fives typically concern negatives such as loss, conflict, strife, struggle, disagreement, disappointment, defeat, sorrow, regrets, and unwilling or unnecessary contributions. Fives may also represent change, renewal, positive struggle, amassing or consolidating forces, and progress.
Disagreement. Competition. Strife. Tension. Conflict. Anxiety. Struggle.
Fighting one's environment. A strenuous competition and struggle in the search for riches and fortune or creative endeavours. Remain alert, engaged, and ready to struggle and fight for what is important, defending what you perceive as yours.
Reversed Meaning: Sham disagreement. Positive competition. Inner conflict. Minor hassles.
Imitation, as in taking part with others, for example, in a sham fight.
