Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:
Five of Pentacles
The Five of Pentacles card reflects a material and financial loss due either to personal choices or an uncontrollable circumstance. There is hope for recovery regardless. If you experience a brief success in monetary matters, be cautious in what you do with it. You will easily lose what has been gained if you aren’t skillful with these earnings. In reverse, you are reminded to reexamine your ‘prosperity awareness’ to learn if the problem lies within your expectation and attitude around financial success.
upright: loss; deficit
right: spiraling into financial disarray
left: some misuse or waste of earnings
reversed: need of change in attitude toward money
