Five of Pentacles Tarot Card Description

Tarot cards with the numerical value of Five are often a bit ‘difficult’ and the Five of Pentacles is no different. When you combine this with the suite of Pentacles (also known as Coins), which is associated with money and material matters, cash concerns are almost bound to add to the creases on your brow.

Upright Meaning

The Five of Pentacles is connected to a sense of ‘lack’, obviously this could point to a cash flow crisis. Equally, it could mean that although you have all that you need for now, you are concerned for the future, or wonder if you have the resources available for a particular project. It may also be that you are materially secure, but are searching for something more, such as a spiritual connection. If social matters have made you sigh, it could be because you feel emotionally deprived. It may even be that you are in a co-dependant relationship and you have become locked in to playing the victim. In romantic matters The Five of Pentacles warns that troubles lay ahead, and that one partner may feel lonely and unworthy. Singletons may be so down hearted that they are neglecting themselves emotionally and physically. So, can you draw any positive message from this card? Yes! If you know there is something missing from your life, you’re half way to solving the problem. All you need to do is discover what it is that you are lacking. Perhaps you need to; be more self-reliant, explore a spiritual path or learn to be less materialistic. In contrast, it may be you are a bit too shy to ask other folk for help. The Five of Pentacles can suggest that you fear rejection - but is this really likely to happen? Everyone needs help occasionally, and most people love to lend a hand.

Reversed Meaning

You are so convinced your horizon is covered with storm clouds, you can’t see any blue sky at all. Yet, things aren’t quite that bleak. To escape the threatening storm, you need to gather your resources and do something. It may be that someone will come and rescue you, but you could find they cause more problems than they solve; and may leave you feeling you’d have been better to go it alone. You may feel something is missing from your life. Money worries are a likely candidate for concern and you may be strapped for cash. The issue may be a little more complex, and it is possible that what you are missing is love or a spiritual path. These problems would be disconcerting enough, but if you don’t do something to address this situation, your health could begin to suffer. The difficulty is that you may feel too apathetic to take action.
