Five of Pentacles

Two beggars in rags, one of them on crutches, struggle through a snow storm.  Behind them light streams through a stained glass window decorated with five pentacles.

A loss of money.   There is a strong possibility of being, “on the outside looking in,” in terms of abundance.  Literally, out in the cold. There is also an element of loneliness here, of feeling isolated and without resources.  The questioner may find some solace in organized religion.

REVERSED:  The period of loneliness will be ending and the questioner will start to make helpful contacts.

EXAMPLES:  Being seriously on the skids financially and trying to get connected with government services that could help.
