The Five of Pentacles
Upright - Redundancy, loss of financial stability, material worries, poverty. A warning of money troubles lying ahead, however there is a suggestion that restriction in certain areas may open doors in others. Avenues yet to be explored, a message of not being too despondent.
Ill Dignified or Reversed - Long term unemployment. Lack of success. Poverty and destitution. Adversity that may be overcome was it not for a lack of imagination or ability to be less obstinate.
