Description of the Tarot's 5-pentacles blade

The 5 of pentacles is one of the minor arcana of the Tarot.

It has four pentacles topped by foliage and one in the center. The central pentacle is surrounded by vegetation and the other  pentacle, and it seems as if it is trapped in a circle and cannot get out.

The 5 of pentacles is therefore a form of confinement (hell - me - lie - which can be that of consciousness) which prevents one from finding the way out. The situation seems to be hopeless. The consultant believes he is locked in problems without a solution. However, it is enough to look up to find the right path.

The meanings of the Tarot 5 of Pentacles card upright

The card of the 5 of Tarot Pentacles is a card carrying a strong emotion of withdrawal and rejection. The card of the 5 of Tarot Pentacles is a card that talks about poverty and financial loss. As with all the cards in the Money Sequence, it will essentially talk about the material sphere.


The 5 de pentacles talks mainly about financial problems, poverty or adversity. This card indicates that you are suffering a financial loss or failure of some item of equipment. The card shows all aspects, all facets of material problems and lack. This includes :

  • the loss of money,
  • poverty in general,
  • the disease,
  • solitude,
  • unemployment... etc.

If you suffer a loss in the material sphere, the card indicates that you should be aware that there are people who can help you. It is a matter of looking for people close to you who are able to help you. There is always a solution. The challenge here is to open your eyes and turn your gaze to the right source that will get you out of this situation.
Often, what causes financial problems is based on emotions. For example, greed leads to excess, anxiety leads to mistakes, possession leads to loneliness, fear of lack leads to poverty...

By focusing too much on the material life, one often loses the spiritual side. It should not be forgotten that one can be rich for a time but that the wheel turns as indicated by the wheel of fortune of the tarot.

The psychological aspect of the 5 of pentacles card

The Relationship

In psychological matters, the 5 of pentacles will indicate the difficulties you may encounter in your relationship in the material sphere.

Money becomes an obsession and completely destroys the relationship. Instead of establishing an emotional and affective base on love, the relationship is based on wealth or lack of wealth. Anxiety and anguish take over, and the relationship now functions only on the basis of lack and fear of not having wealth or money.


The other spheres

e 5 of pentacles shows that you feel isolated. And that is the most difficult part. You feel lonely. You need help, but you feel that no one can help you. The card does show hope, however. It is possible to ask for help. In fact, the solution to your problems is close at hand. But to do so, you must ask someone else for help. This help can be asked from a person or from God, your angel, the Universe...

However, the 5 de pentacles asks you to do the process of asking for help. If you don't, nothing will happen. It says "Ask and you shall receive". Learn how to ask.

The 5 of pentacles Tarot card shows that you are too focused on your problems. It prevents you from moving forward and getting out of it. It asks you to raise your head and expand your vision. Otherwise, you won't see anything. If pride prevents you from asking for help, you have here to learn a lesson of humility.

The materialization of fears

Fears create situations. The more we are afraid, the more we materialize the situations that frighten us. To resolve this, it is necessary to become aware. You can ask yourself questions, such as:

  • What fear do you have about money and wealth?
  • Why are you anxious?
  • Are you afraid of missing, and if so, why?

Wealth is often based on a psychological state more than on an actual financial state.
The psychological aspect is also that of being on the margins of society, in our consumer society. Thus this state is still a form of shame of one's situation and loss of self-esteem.


The 5 of pentacles also indicates that what you are experiencing today is the fruit of your feelings that have materialized.

What you imagine, you create Buddha...

It is your attitude to the situation that has created the material lack that you are experiencing today.
The 5 of pentacles can also show that you feel lonely, abandoned, ignored or even rejected by others and society in general. You are desperate and need to find comfort.

Fear of losing

The five of pentacles is an interesting card in understanding your view of life. This card implies that you have fears (and beliefs) that keep you in a state of need. In fact, the fear of missing and losing is very present. And as we tend towards our fears, it is these fears that materialize in your life.

What are your greatest fears? Take a test

Fear of losing your job, will eventually make you lose your job. The fear of running out of money will make you run out of money and so on.

If you stay focused on everything negative. And, if life for you is a series of unpleasant events, it's time to react. The 5 of Pentacles Tarot card is the clear message that you can no longer continue like this. You must take steps to reverse the trend.

Now is the time to turn your gaze to something more constructive than the past. If you are frustrated with your life and what it is, it is now important to learn from your mistakes and move forward.

The meanings of the 5 of Pentacles Tarot reversed card

The 5 of pentacles upside down will indicate the end of the difficulties. Especially if you have recently suffered significant financial losses or if you have been unemployed for a long period of time.

You will finally find new resources or income that will come back. These may take the form of a new job or the help of a person who will help you get back on your feet.

You will then finally feel better and more confident. You've managed to turn your gaze where it should have been and your financial difficulties will fade away.
The 5 of pentacles of the upside down Tarot may also indicate the persistence of internal problems. For example, it is not material poverty but rather spiritual or mental poverty. This reflects, for example, that you feel isolated or alone in society. You think you are despised or that others do not listen to you. Worse, they don't see you.

Another aspect is that of not having understood that the material side is not the only important side of life. Thus, you are fighting on the material side because you are afraid of missing and therefore you have bet everything on your material life and your wealth and you have neglected the emotional side of life or even the spiritual side.
