Five of Pentacles - Minor Arcana Card

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.

Suggested prompts:

upright: loss; deficit

right: spiraling into financial disarray

left: some misuse or waste of earnings

reversed: need of change in attitude toward money
