5 of Pentacles

5 of Pentacles

Meaning

The 5 of Pentacles does not carry good news. It is a card of sadness, and one that portrays a woman and her family being left out in the cold. This could mean a literal interpretation and could suggest financial problems leading to relocation. There may be a feeling of abandonment in a relationship or in a marriage. Poverty could be the result of this card due to an external event or situation. This card also suggests that you are feeling in the dumps, and have been for some time. A lack of self esteem or feeling like a failure after a set back are all hall marks of this card. If there is any consolation to be had with this card it is that, this cold season too shall pass.

Symbolism

Unfortunately the symbolism in this card is fairly spot on when it comes to the Symbolism of the 5 of Pentacles. It is a dark and cold looking card, and carries that message. Here we see a woman in rags outside in the cold hobbling with children. The sense from this card is one of poverty, helplessness, and being left out in the cold. This also is the message of this card. If this card appears in a reading, there may be an issue of loss or abandonment coming into play, or a loss financially. This could also point to abuse in a relationship. You may also be relocating due to financial difficulties. Pentacles often symbolize our spiritual consciousness as well. Abundance can mean an abundance of joy as well, so if you are feeling depressed or lacking in energy and joy, this card might appear.
