Struggles in life, petty irritations and short-term difficulties.
The 5 of Wands is the card of the challenge, the comparison of strength, and the sporting competition. It presents us with situations in which we are challenged to prove our strength. In any case, this is not a hostile or even destructive conflict. It is a measure of strength, which can produce pugnacity and boisterousness. It can take the form of a competition or a task that requires our entire ability. At the same time, it usually has a playful tendency that only turns to seriousness in a few unfortunate cases. We should not avoid experiences that are characterized by this card since they give us a good and usually suspenseful opportunity to become aware of our own abilities.
