Five of Pentacles Overview

The Five of Pentacles is as rough as it looks. Two destitute individuals are out late at night in a snowstorm with nothing more than some light clothes on their backs. The energy of this card is one of trying times and loss. It may also indicate a growth period which can be frustrating and trying as well. Reversed this card brings hope and improvement in one’s situation. After the desolation and loneliness of the upright meaning, the reversed energy is one of things slowly improving. It might not be a perfect situation, but you are on your way to better things. Working part time or things happening at night are also indicated.
