This is a card that symbolizes both internal struggles and external conflicts with others. It comes up when one’s needs are not being met. Rebelliousness and getting so caught up in defending one’s own position and ideas that nothing is getting through.
There are likely inner conflicts between your heart and your head present when this card appears. Five’s suggest a resistance to learning or not seeing something as it truly is. You are called upon to be very honest and objective in order to resolve an inner crisis.
This is a card of inner conflict and turmoil that makes it difficult to hear the call of your Spirit or higher self. In this card, the men are all fighting and nothing is getting accomplished. At this point, you may have no clear goal or certainty of what you truly want or need.
