When reversed, the Five of Wands suggests instead of external forces battering down on you, the conflicting and opposing forces at work are stemming from internal channels. You might be struggling to formulate an opinion on a contentious topic or fumbling through making sense of an immensely personal choice. Everywhere you turn you see new facets to the arguments battling away inside of you, and instead of clarity, these new perspectives just add another angle upon which to become overwhelmed. You need to confront things head on and make a stand for what you truly want for yourself. Once you do, relief will be swift to follow.
