A battle has struck out in this Five of Wands Deviant Moon Tarot! People from different regions are attacking each other, leading to a battle with sticks to deal with the problem, instead of searching for peaceful means of negotiating to resolve conflicts.
The chaos in this card is really similar to Five of Wands Rider Waite Tarot, with the only difference is that RW’s crowd has 5 people while there are only 4 people.
