Five of wands tarot card meanings summary

There is a time to follow and there is a time to lead. The Five of wands tarot card speaks of a time where you are somewhere in between. You are not sure if you are ready to lead, but you are not trusting in who to follow either. The result is often bickering and pity conflicts. One of you will have to take the lead, even if it means sticking your neck out. If you don’t like the leader, and you don’t want to be a leader, you might end up a loner. Find out who you are and what you believe in, and your life will become so much easier. You are not meant to follow everyone, however, you are not meant to fight everyone either. Finding out who you are and believing in yourself will make you less argumentative and more able to stand on your own two feet.
