The Five of Pentacles – Anxiety
Two worn figures stand outside a brick wall from which a light shines through. The pair debate whether to continue onwards towards a more distant goal in this fearful weather.
The background is dark, gray, and cold. The outer environment is not at all supportive. The diamond meanwhile is bricked up though a ray of hope shines through. It’s a cautious hope though. The light may remain out of reach.
The Five of Pentacles is a crisis card. The negativity fomenting in the previous card is fully expressed in this one. Material possessions have been lost though life must still be supported. How that is to be achieved is a mystery.
