Five of Wands tarot card

Card 1 - Five of Wands

The Five of Wands depicts five men all holding their own wands and brandishing them up in the air. Like with most fives in the tarot, it is about some kind of disagreement that is facing the querent. This disagreement can either be taken to be as a sign of conflict between the men, or that all of them are simply enjoying the adrenaline rush of this conflict, and that the competition amongst them is of a good natured rivalry, not anger. The relaxed way in which they seem to be holding their wands gives a sense that this argument may be one of show rather than a fierce one.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Three of Swords (conflicts), to some degree the Seven of Wands (standing your ground) although it tends to reflect scattered energy

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Temperance (compromise)

Five of Wands combinations
Collectively, multiple Fives in a spread show instability.  Fives can be temporary, so look for the following card to see how it plays out.

Tower tarot card

Card 2 - Tower

The Tower card depicts a high spire nestled on top of the mountain. A lightning bolt strikes the tower which sets it ablaze. Flames are bursting in the windows and people are jumping out of the windows as an act of desperation. They perhaps signal the same figures we see chained in the Devil card earlier. They want to escape the turmoil and destruction within. The Tower is a symbol for the ambition that is constructed on faulty premises. The destruction of the tower must happen in order to clear out the old ways and welcome something new. Its revelations can come in a flash of truth or inspiration. 

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
For me, The Tower is in a class of it’s own on this one! However, Death and the Ten of Swords add the sort of tension we usually wish to avoid in a reading.

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Sun takes things from extreme to the other.

Tower combinations
When reading in simple lines (or Life Spread) The Tower is more damaging when it comes at the end, since whatever sits before it will come crashing down, or can add impetus to an already difficult situation. The best scenario is to see a very positive card following, indicating a quick recovery or complete turnaround of events, such as: The Tower to The Sun, where something that initially appears to be a disaster turns out surprisingly well and for the best; possibly a blessing in disguise.
