The 5 of wands, the number 5 of this card is the midway point in any creation. When we create anything we get to a point where everything can be still up in the air, it is like we have spent lots of time working towards something, yet still we do not have anything to show for this.
There could even still be disagreement, replanning, and argument, all meanings of this tarot card.
If this card pops up in a relation to a career question in the far future position of the Celtic Cross spread, for example, say, “Will I get the promotion and reward for all my effort?”. The answer would be NO.
