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)

Card 2 - Seven of Wands

The Seven of Wands has an image of a man who is standing on a tall hill and being challenged by the opponents below. He seems to be defending this position and attacking in retaliation. It is interesting to note that in the Rider-Waite depiction of the Seven of Wands, the man is wearing not matching shoes. This is linked to the symbolism of being on uneven ground or not having a stable footing in life.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
The Chariot (strength of will) Strength (inner courage)Ace of Swords (clarity of purpose) to some degree, Nine of Wands (perseverance).

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Four of Pentacles (holding back) Four of Cups (blasé) The Moon (uncertainty) Two of Swords (indecision)

Card 3 - Five of Swords

The Five of Swords card depicts a young man who has a very convenient look of contempt on his face. He is looking at the enemies that he has managed to conquer. There are five swords that he possesses – which he has taken from the other combatants who are in the card. The two other figures are walking away from him in a slow manner with a sense of loss and sadness. Above them, the sky is tumultuous and cloudy, which indicates that not everything is well, despite the fact that the battle is already over.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Differing aspects of secrecy can be found with The Devil (not usually very healthy by most regards) or The Moon (deceptions). The High Priestess has a secrecy aspect but normally beneficial. 

Five of Swords combinations
Surrounding cards should help provide further information for the root of the problem, in some cases a King or Queen preceding may provide clear identification of a person involved that can’t be trusted. Ideally, you want to see a positive card following to show it comes to nought or is overcome.
