Understanding the Tarot - The Meanings of the Cards
The Suit of Cups

Five of Wands

Make the best of any challenge that is before you, and it will become less of a struggle. This struggle could be a blessing in disguise, and return riches instead of strife.

Five of Wands Reversed

Wishing for something to happen will not make it so. Making changes on your own will also change your outlook on the situation, and could put you in the position to get the very thing you wanted in the first place.
