68-Five of Coins – Reversed Golden Deck

Your Chosen Card – Five of Coins Reversed Golden Deck

When reversed, the Five of Disks suggests a reluctance to fulfill a commitment when the going gets tough. The idealism of young love comes into conflict with harsh reality, making it difficult to stay together when confronted with financial loss, ill health, or other trying circumstances. Rather than attempt to reconcile differences and make your emotional ties more satisfying, you are inclined to give up and seek satisfaction elsewhere. In essence, you may be deciding to leave your partner out in the cold, or you may find yourself undergoing such an experience.

Keywords Reversed: Marital difficulties, financial setbacks, job loss, dissipation, dissolution of a loving relationship, infidelity, misconduct, illicit love affairs, lack of commitment, absence of support, abandonment to the slings and arrows of fortune, fair-weather friendship, unfulfilling relationships, material trouble, financial loss, unexpected expenses, hardship, begging, unemployment, worry, disquiet, stress, strain, feeling pressured, troubling thoughts, neediness, fear of poverty, destitution, squandering resources, profligacy.

Mercury is linked to the Magician. [The church window is a reference to the Pope and the sacrament of marriage. Fickle Mercury brings instability to the earthy solidity reflected in Taurus and the Knight of Disks, thus exposing the marriage to fluctuations in its material security.]
Number Symbolism: 5 – instability, disruption, crisis, loss, tension, conflict.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: Reading what is written in the cards is an art that can be mastered with a combination of sufficient study and practice. Divination with the tarot uses the card’s images to tell a story that has relevance for the querent. Essentially, reading the tarot is a form of myth-making, which functions like the stories of antiquity, allowing access to thoughts, feelings, and images by which we can make sense of our experiences and lend meaning to our lives. Facilitating access to these archetypal images is the core of the process.

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: The Mamluk deck entered Europe via Spain and gradually spread to other countries. It was not long before the Europeans, upon noticing that the Mamluk court cards consisted of three men and no women, decided to add one to the court. This feminine touch resulted in a deck with a king, queen, cavalier, and knave. The inclusion of a queen in the European playing card deck may have been motivated by the actual dynasties and rulership in a culture where queens held positions of authority.

Complete Book of Tarot: Traditionally people have consulted tarot readers in person. Although some tarot authorities feel that only the reader (and not the querent) should be allowed to handle the deck, most readers believe it is important for the querent to participate in shuffling and cutting the deck as part of the process of selecting the cards. This personal involvement by the querent allows the deck to resonate more effectively with the inquirer’s concerns.

Tarot Triumphs: Should you keep a casebook, or notes of some form, of your Tarot readings and your experiences of divination? This is up to you. I didn’t keep such a record and think it would certainly be interesting now to look back over it and remind myself of readings and Tarot forays I no longer recall. A colleague has a record of all his consultations with the I-Ching stretching back more than fifty years, which is a fascinating document that he permitted me to read.
