When the 5 of Pentacles appears in a love reading, there are irreconcilable differences at hand. In the material realm, there is financial loss or setbacks. You may no longer be self-reliant and have to rely on others while you endure sickness or hardship. This is not the time to take a risk or a gamble.
Two impoverished figures walk on a snowy pavement in front of a church with light shining through a stained glass window. The figure walking behind is wounded and using crutches. The figure in front looks down at the earth while the other looks up at the window.

Traditional Meaning: The card foretells material trouble above all, whether in the form illustrated--that is, destitution--or otherwise.

Reversed: Disorder, chaos, ruin, discord, profligacy.
