68-Five of Pattern – Reversed Mage Deck

Your Chosen Card – Five of Patens Reversed Mage Deck

When reversed, the Five of Coins 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.

Timing: 0 Taurus–10 Taurus. Tropical, 21 April–30 April. Sidereal, 14 May–24 May.
Astrology: Nimble and clever Mercury in the first decan of earthy Taurus, realm of the Waite King/Thoth Prince of Coins (Air of Earth) and the Hierophant (Taurus). 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 King of Coins, thus exposing the marriage to fluctuations in its material security.]
Number Symbolism: 5 – instability, disruption, crisis, loss, tension, conflict.

Reversed Cards: As I mentioned in the beginning of this section, fives don’t have goodness or badness built into them. It really is all about how you perceive the change the fives have swept into your life. This could not be more evident in the blocked Five of Pentacles. You could say you have tunnel vision and are only able to see one outcome to one pressing problem. The reality is that everywhere you turn there are multiple solutions and possibilities. This card reminds us that life doesn’t have to be difficult, but it will be if we choose for it to be.

Tarot for Beginners: Major Arcana cards outweigh all other cards in a spread, so if there are two interpretations at odds with each other, the interpretation of the Major Arcana card ‘trumps’ the other. They also raise the significance of the position they fall in, so that, for example, a trump card in your Past position means that aspect of your past is an important influence on your current situation. Any reversed Major Arcana cards may be indicating that you’re oblivious, or at least not paying enough attention, to the relevant life lesson, and will find it hard to progress in your life until you address the concerns being indicated by the reversed card.
