The Five of Wands is about the positive challenges you face when you are in conflict or competition with others.
While conflict, rivalry, and strife seem like negative things, they are opportunities for growth. You’re going to have to suit up and fight. There’s no hiding any more. It is time to commit to reaching your goals at a level that scares you. This means changing your daily routines, beliefs, and habits quickly so you can work with absolute focus and clarity. There is no more room for daydreams and wishes. You need to Do The Work. There are NO exceptions or excuses.
This is the card for individual prosperity and personal luxury. This isn’t the luxury of having a new convertible every year, or living on a yacht without ever having to do another day of work in your life. You aren’t resting on your laurels.
Instead, you’re enjoying them. True luxury means different things to different people, and this card is about recognizing and honoring what your true definition of luxury is.
Find your simplicity and independence by acknowledging and living this experience of ultimate personal satisfaction.

The Four of Cups represents what happens when you feel so unfulfilled and bored with your life that you’ve become blind to the gifts and opportunities sitting right in front of you. Start by asking yourself some tough questions: Are you truly living the life you imagined for yourself? Or have you settled for what was easiest or expected of you?
This is not the time to barrel gung-ho into something new. Instead, take it slow. Spend time quietly contemplating and exploring your options. Make one small step and then re-evaluate. It is your responsibility to understand everything happening in your environment before you make a permanent decision.
