Your Chosen Card – Five of Pattern Upright Mage Deck
When upright, the Five of Pentacles traditionally refers to two people who remain very much in love despite any material troubles they must confront. They take seriously their marriage vows: ‘for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.’ The lovers walking in a snowstorm pass the church where they got married. Despite declining finances and ill health, they remain devoted to each other in a committed relationship. This card indicates the importance of love and mutual support in weathering lifes storms. It shows a willingness to face hardships with a partner in a mutually supportive way.
Keywords Upright: Spiritual solace, seeking financial assistance, mutual support, devotion, pure love, affection, commitment, lovemaking, affinity, concord, reconciliation, married life for better or for worse; ‘no matter what happens, were in this together.’
Timing: 0 Taurus10 Taurus. Tropical, 21 April30 April. Sidereal, 14 May24 May.
Astrology: Nimble and clever Mercury in the first decan of earthy Taurus, realm of the Waite King/Thoth Prince of Pentacles (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 Pentacles, thus exposing the marriage to fluctuations in its material security.]
Number Symbolism: 5 – instability, disruption, crisis, loss, tension, conflict.
Rider Waite: Two mendicants in a snow-storm pass a lighted casement. Divinatory Meanings: The card foretells material trouble above all, whether in the form illustrated – that is, destitution – or otherwise. For some cartomancists, it is a card of love and lovers – wife, husband, friend, mistress; also concordance, affinities. These alternatives cannot be harmonized. (R) disorder, chaos, ruin, discord, profligacy.
