Sasha Graham's Card a Day Tarot Blog – The Five of Wands

The Five of Wands


Intensity, commotion, heat! The fives in the Minor Arcana of Tarot tend to be tough cards and the Five of Wands is no exception.

Wands represent the element of fire that contains intention, exhilaration and incendiary energy. Fives can be problematic the same way the middle act of a play, novel or film gets tough before things resolve themselves. Oh – the drama!

Today, my sister called to alert me that an earthquake had just struck LA – where she lives. An earthquake is an excellent example of Five of Wands energy – ruckus underground shaking the earth’s surface!

An ever so sexy soap opera star brings his children to the same swimming lessons I take my daughter to. I call him “man candy”. I can’t even look in his direction because I get all Five of Wands over his tan, sculpted muscles. I pray he never attempts conversation with me.

There are certain political topics that get me worked up so fast – I can barely debate them. Namely a woman’s right to choose!

Are there buttons your family presses that get you from zero to sixty in a heartbeat? There are issues between my husband and myself that signal instant argument.

The thing to remember when your cheeks start to flush, your ears start to burn and you are in the midst of a Five of Wands moment – is to calm down. Unless this energy is benefiting you – shift your focus ever so slightly.

A dear friend of mine is a commercial and print model. She often gets worked up, excited and nervous when auditioning for TV. On her last audition, rather than staying flustered, she asked for peace and calmness in the moment. By focusing on the present – not the projected outcome – she clicked with the director and guess what? She booked the job!

Tap into your Five of Wand energy so it serves you!

  1. “Man candy” … “Namely a woman’s right to choose!”

    You sound so much like me, lol

    I’m so glad I came upon your elab on the 5 of wands. There’s this guy that I see often here at work, and he does this for me. I kept seeing this card come up in asking about him! I was telling a co-worker that I don’t get it, I can’t stand how arrogant this guy is… but I can’t tame the desire to fantasize about him! She said you wanna have “hate-sex with him.” LOL! My mouth dropped open and I said, “OMG, that’s so true.” 😉
