And here it does not matter whether it is about competition with competitors, about a confrontation of two opinions or about a psychological competition (conflict) with a loved one: you must immediately take the bull by the horns and prove that you are still at your best. 

If you lead the battle honestly and, moreover, with full dedication, then victory is guaranteed to you.

Five of Wands Symbolism (Raider Waite)

The Five of Wands shows us five men moving and waving their rods chaotically, without any respect for others and in direct competition with each other, participating in a conflict.

However, on close observation, they are seen to wave and display their wands as if they were a banner. They may actually be in this chaos with no real intention of harming anyone or hurting each other, just planting their positions.

Men wear clothes of different colors to symbolize social or class differences, as well as a symbol of the different beliefs and value systems that exist on the planet, or at times, in the same family or group.

Five of Wands in Raider Waite Tarot Deck depict a  a group of youths waving sticks, as if in sports.

The Five Wands is a challenge to us, an invitation to measure our strengths, compete, check: will we have enough strength? This is by no means connected with enmity or a battle not for life, but for death. We are offered to try our hand – maybe, indeed, in some kind of competition, debate, or maybe in some new business for us. We have the strengths for this, and we just have a chance to use them, so there is no reason to fear serious damage or damage, unless with a series of unfavorable circumstances. The chances that this card offers should not be missed, because they give us the opportunity to be convinced of our abilities, to realize them.
