The Five of Wands and the Six of Wands are two cards that when used together indicate a difficult period in a love life. On the one hand, the Five of Wands indicates a situation of rivalry and competition between different people, which can create much tension in a relationship. If a couple is competitive with each other in their love life, the fire of their love could be extinguished by the heat of their competing egos. This could lead to a lot of stress, arguments and difficulty in communication.

On the other hand, the Six of Wands speaks of a time of victory and success in love. If a couple has over come the obstacles and rivalries within their relationship, then they will have been rewarded with a time of peace and harmony.

The meaning of the cards will depend on what kind of reading you are doing and the question you asked the deck. This is a guide covering the general meanings of the cards and how they relate to each other.

Common 2-card spreads

Whilst it’s great to know who these two cards interact with each other, it’s important to note that the meaning will depend on the context of your spread

The most common 2 card spreads I recommend to newer readers are:

  • The 2 card cross (otherwise known as “The Fool’s Journey”)
  • The 2 card “Yes or No”

“The Fool’s Journey”

Setup: The two card cross is where you place two cards face up, one placed vertically and with one laying horizontally over

Interpretation: The 2 cards represent a “situation” and a “challenge”. The first card will describe the situation you are in with the second horizontal card being the “challenge” crossing you (literally crossing you in this case!)

Reading: Using the overviews in this guide is a great way to start. First, look at the meanings of the 2 cards, and see how they might relate either as your “situation” or “challenge”. Once you have that you can look at the general overview for how the two cards interact with each other.

The benefit of this spread is that it can give clarity when you’re feeling uncertain or anxious. Once you have clarity of thought, and a strong idea of what your challenge is you can find solutions to help your situation

The 2 card “Yes or No”

Setup: The 2 card “Yes or No” is where you place two cards face up side by side, whilst asking your deck a “yes or no” question.

Interpretation: Each card in a tarot deck has a “yes” or a “no” meaning. Look at the meanings of each card, and you will have your answer.

The benefit of this is you get a stronger yes or no compared to a single card draw. You may find you often get a mix of “yes or no”, and this is fine. It simply means there is doubt, or things are not yet clear.

Yes or No meaning

Things are a bit tricky for this combination, as 5 Of Wands and 6 Of Wands mean different things. The cards are unsure about your question, or the answer to the question has not yet been decided.

The “Yes” and “No” meanings can differ from reader to reader. The meanings here are based on what I believe are the generally accepted definitions.

What does 5 Of Wands mean?

The 5 of Wands Tarot card represents hustle, competition and obstacles in all aspects of life, including health, finances, and relationships.

When it comes to health, the 5 of Wands suggests that there is a need to stay in peak physical condition. There may be inner or outer battles to overcome, and the card predicts that you or your loved ones will have to work hard to stay healthy. Whether it be diet and exercise, or going to the doctor, good health requires a constant level of effort.

When it comes to finances, the 5 of Wands indicates that you will be facing challenges and competition. Money may be tight and it will take effort to get ahead. You may have to juggle multiple jobs or market yourself in order to bring in the income you need. Gambling should also be avoided, as this card suggests a higher degree of luck and risk.

Finally, when it comes to relationships, the 5 of Wands suggests that it may be difficult to maintain. You may have to work hard to make sure that a relationship is strong, as there is a tendency to become complacent. There will likely be moments of tension and competition; it’s your job to navigate them with grace. The card encourages you to cultivate a shared understanding and be open to compromise.

This card encourages you to take a look at how integrating these different aspects of your life can help support your health journey. It may be time to make changes in your diet, exercise habits, and lifestyle that will create a harmonious balance between taking care of both your body and mind.

For Finances:
