5 of Pentacles

Meaning

The 5 of Pentacles Tarot card 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 suggest financial problems leading to relocation. There may be a feeling of abandonment in a relationship or 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 setback are hallmarks 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 Tarot card is pretty spot on when it comes to the imagery shown on 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 message you might interpret from this card is one of poverty, helplessness, and being left out in the cold. 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.

On the other hand, abundance can also mean an abundance of joy, so if you are feeling depressed or lacking in energy and joy, this card might appear.
