Card Of The Week - Five Of Pentacles

This week's tarot card is the Five of Pentacles! A card that has many meanings, let's dig a little deeper into what the Five of Pentacles can bring to your life.


Poverty, misfortune, recovery, hardship, worry, absence, isolation. This card has many words associated with it that no one would want in their reading. However, even though the Five of Pentacles has a bad side, there is still hope. The person in the card is injured, but they will get better. This card wants you to ask yourself, in what ways can I help myself recover from a bad situation?


In the Five of Pentacles, there is a church window behind the people, symbolising hope and fighting for what you believe in. The people may be standing close to each other, but it is uncertain as to whether they are friends or not, representing an uncertain relationship. Lastly, there is a bell around the man on the left's neck. This is saying that an issue cannot be ignored, no matter how hard you try.


The main meaning of the Five of Pentacles is loss and poverty. This could mean a financial loss, or maybe a personal one. You may be feeling a dip in your self-esteem, as losing something can often lead us to blaming ourselves. On the plus side, this card also wants us to know that the hard times will pass. You may feel as if you've been left in the cold, but for every bad time, a good one will follow.
