Five of Pentacles Symbolism in Raider Waite Tarot Deck
Five of Pentacles in Raider Waite Tarot Deck depict two beggars in a snowstorm pass by a lighted window.
Five of Pentacles is a map of crisis, deprivation and anxiety. This is a decline, a failure in business, when we feel miserable, unhappy, abandoned, and sometimes in fact we are in constrained circumstances. At the same time, the Five of Pentacles or Coins rarely serves as a harbinger of truly serious losses, sorrows or ruin, but only indicates the uncertainty of the situation and our subjective feeling of fear of losing ground under our feet. Such periods of decline are characteristic of any growth crisis, when a person leaves a certain sphere that has become habitual, stable, and passes into a new, still unfamiliar, and possibly dangerous one.
Five of Pentacles Upright Meaning:
In the upright position, FIVE of PENTACLES usually means the loss of something material and the acquisition of life experience in return, a lesson. As a symbol of the collapse of the balanced scheme of the FOUR, it can manifest itself in the form of anarchism, a clash of group interests. In the scenario, as a rule, it means difficulties, difficulties leading you to success and affirmation at a new level, or driving you back to the FOUR level. One way or another, the memory of the experience remains, regardless of whether it was positive or negative.
Five of Pentacles Reversed Meaning:
In the inverted position, FIVE of PENTACLES means energy overruns, waste of reserves, vulnerability, fear; signals that you have turned onto a bad track; symbolizes disharmony in love relationships. Here the defeated sign of Leo, or the Fifth House, is played out.
The card may also indicate stagnation, worldly concerns, and discontent. It may happen that you see great opportunities for yourself, but they are still not quite reachable. The highest goal is already visible, but at the moment is not yet achievable.
Five of Pentacles Relation with Astrology
Astrology Significance: Leo, Aquarius, Sun, Houses Fifth and Eleventh.
The basic message of Three of Pentacle is anxiety.
Five of Pentacles represents the first decade of Taurus from April 21 to 30.
The sign of Taurus symbolizes the ability to creative work. But true creation is a harmonious combination of material and spiritual into a single whole. If Capricorn’s actions are based on his own inner core and his “I” is able to lead him to the goal because it turns out to be more significant for this sign than everything else, then for Taurus its “I” dissolves in feeling and desire. If the “I” of a person is satisfied and nothing forces him to act anymore, then to get down to business, a desire to do “something” must arise, for which the world around you will be grateful. Therefore, the main task of the first decade of Taurus is to realize our feelings, understand the crept into the soul of desire and respond to them.
This decade is characterized by enterprise in everything related to the sensory sphere, and therefore it is distinguished by its successful functioning and administrative activities in the field of art. She is also characterized by the emotional susceptibility endowed with her search-driven Mercury, her ruler, although Taurus is characterized by a slow perception.
Feeling assimilates information not at the same speed as the mind, but firmly: by comprehending, it lays the foundation for the building of the future. Sensory experience becomes the basis of life wisdom. And wisdom traditionally speaks of the perishability of all perishable.
The tarot card depicts beggars under the windows of the temple. The miserable figures of two cripples show how much a person has no power over the earth. Free will often only cripples a person: he is often not able to take his life course without mistakes. But the windows of the temple are lit: spiritual strength helps to overcome life miscalculations and becomes a natural internal support of a person in material activity. True feeling possesses this power and enables a person, having risen above circumstances, to control the course of life’s phenomena.
Trap. Numb in habitual and eternal discontent (including oneself).
Having wandered from the blissful state of the FOUR PENTACLES, a person breaks out to the level of FIVE, which acts like a stone thrown into a swamp. No other card can accurately reflect the state of Leo, yearning among the routine for something extraordinary, like FIVE PENTACLES.
The theme of this card sounds brightly Uranus, exiled in Leo. Uranium, acting on the material level and sometimes taking materialized forms. Where Aquarius will be “swallowed up” by a new idea, Leo will have a mistress for himself, therefore FIVE of PENTACLES often means erotic adventures, hobby, flirtation, love games.
The situation of hangings, revelers often goes on FIVE of PENTACLES. Explosion of the calm atmosphere of the FOUR, of course, just does not work. It is often accompanied by monetary losses, disruptions, failures, disappointments, unhappy love, ambiguous situations. Sometimes the disturbance of the rest of the FOUR turns out to be erroneous, and the person only thinks about how he would go back (the demon beguiled).
At the same time, it should be noted that the FIVE of PENTACLES symbolizes karmic situations, that is, those set initially, and therefore easily finding their support in the horoscope.
