Raising Our Self-Esteem With The Five Of Pentacles Tarot

The Five of Pentacles is not a card you want to come up in a reading unless it is reversed. It is one of those tarot card messages trying to get across to you to come up out of the pity party and see how full your life is in gratitude. It usually shows up during a period in our life journey when nothing seems to be going right and you can’t catch a break. Our souls co-create this period of time with us to help us emotionally grow and learn faith and trust. If we give into the ego’s energy of hopelessness, despair and “I can never catch a break” attitude, you will only see more of it.

The Five of Pentacles is a card of financial loss, the feeling of less than and poverty. You have hit hard times, especially when it comes to your work, career, finances, and material possessions. You may have recently lost your job, your home, or your financial security. You no longer feel safe because it has all been stripped away from you in one blow, effecting how your self-esteem is attached to what you do and what you have.

The good news of The Five of Pentacles reversed is that it indicates there is an end to difficult times, particularly if you have recently suffered that major financial hit or job loss. New sources of income, a new job, or help while you get back on your feet. You may be starting to feel as if life is worth living again and regaining your self-confidence. Finally, you can see a way out of your financial difficulties and your hope is renewed.

In general, the Five of Pentacles gives you a feeling of being isolated in your problems while everyone else seems to be doing fine and you are the only one that is suffering. Do the best you can, with what you have, remembering that we are all one spiritual family and if you need help, ask for it. The help you need will come, it always does if you believe.

Career, Love, Money, Health, Spirituality

Career: Work can seem to be either burdensome or you are without work when this card appears. Let go of the belief that you have to stay in a situation that is not healthy for you, having faith in yourself and the universe that good changes are just around the corner. If you need a new position, ask everyone you know for possibilities. Things will get better. Have faith!

Love and Romance: The Five of Pentacles is not a particularly happy indicator when it comes to love. You may have your eye on someone who is not treating you the way you deserve but it may be just what you need to stop fantasizing about someone that is not good for you. This card can be very much a card of addressing the need of wanting what you can’t have. It’s important to remember there is never only just one person that we can be with and have a soul-level, happy, meaningful relationship. When love is right, you don’t have to do beg for it, do or be anything special in order for them to want you. Change your approach to what love looks and feels like, knowing there are still good guys out there for you. You are not an unlovable troll.

Money: With this card, you may feel as though you will never make financial ends meet. Ask the Universe to show you a creative way to bring in more income and ask for help, even if from unexpected sources. Reconsider how much is going out in expenses and for what? There is always help out there, even if it is only temporary with the Universe showing you how to increase your income in ways you would have never considered before. This period is only temporary.

Health: Due to all the other stress you may be under, you might be focusing too much on small health issues and blowing them out of proportion. If you have a major concern about a health issue, get it evaluated (even if you have no money and no health insurance, there is always a way to get health treatment if you are persistent) and then do the best you can to take care of it. Reducing your stress level and finding some way to relax is a great way to improve your overall health.

Spirituality: Remind yourself daily that nothing lasts forever, particularly if you are having a difficult time, as this card often indicates. Always know there is help out there for you by stomping your foot at the Universe and telling it you “need a little help here, hello!” It works very well.

Susan Z’s Verdict

We all go through hard times in our life. Sometimes it seems like they go on forever but eventually things turn around for the better with a positive attitude that you are deserving of a good outcome. It WILL come!!! Breathe and have Faith!

  1. I Thank you for my daily reading today. I truly believe everything that you said especially when you’re talking about my love life. I’ve got to come to a conclusion that this person I’m lusting for and want to be in my life, is truly not the one for me.

  2. Thankyou for sending me this i know i.must have signed up somewhere so.ehow awhile ago but i dont check them.very often this is probly only the 2nd or 3rd.time i just dont go thru my email often as i did before. Anyway excuses and reasons aside this tarot was beyond spot on and a eye opener i needed to pull myself up and it over it theres no crying in baseball and only the strong survive. Im truley taken aback that at the odds of me looking at it and the odds or it being so accurate I believe in fate destiny love luck and divine things and its kinda selfobsorbed.to think the cosmos would go to so much trouble for me to see a little note from a stranger or computer to help me pull my head out of my butt but never the less it helped so thanks
