Five of Pentacles

Card No p5


The card foretells material trouble above all, whether in the form illustrated--that is, destitution--or otherwise. For some cartomancists, it is a card of love and lovers-wife, husband, friend, mistress; also concordance, affinities. These alternatives cannot be harmonized.

Additional Meaning

Conquest of fortune by reason.


Disorder, chaos, ruin, discord, profligacy.

Additional Reversed

Troubles in love.
