Synopsis of the Fives

Five is the number of rebellion and change. Where Four gave us the rules, Five is where we decide to break them regardless of consequences. 

These are the battles that are fought to break old habits and create new changes. Five will shake us up and force us to strive for progress.

The four main elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water are complemented by the fifth, Spirit. 

While Five isn't comfortable, the hard times will be overcome and positive changes eventually welcomed.        

Upright Tarot Card Meaning:

That fact that your present circumstances may be related to previous over-spending won't make you feel any better.

If I remind you of that, I'm not trying to say 'I told you so.'.  It's important to remember to prevent it from happening again.

 Lack of confidence and a low sense of self worth are also indicated with the Five of Coins.

There is no easy solution but it is crucial to have faith that your circumstances will change but you also need to combine practical habits with this sense of optimism.

Reversed Tarot Card Meaning:

Challenging situations are also present when the Five of Coins is reversed but in this case, you realize that only hard work and plenty of it will change your life.

As soon as you start this process, other forms of help appear - maybe in the form of a grant or gift.

While you won't forget the troubles you experienced, you realized that they have helped you become a stronger person.

Tarot Card Keywords:
