The five of wands shows a group of boys playing on a hillside; each one has a wand, which he is swinging around and/or at the others. Several participants are holding their wands with one hand, and two of those pictured are using both hands. The focus of the card is the central figure dressed in red and wearing a hat. He is in the middle of the action and holds his wand with both hands.
If this card appears in your reading, whether you are male or female, you are like that central figure, and right about now, you are questioning whether it was a good idea to play with this particular group (or get involved in your current situation). You are aware of being the only one wearing a hat (you notice that you are a bit different from the rest of the group), and you wonder if that has made you a target. Do you stay or do you go? You are free to choose.
The message of the card is, “Hang in there a bit longer; you are having a positive effect on the situation.” By staying with the group, you have more influence than you know. You are earning the admiration and respect of the other participants and proving that you can take it as well as dish it out.
