The Five of Pentacles is the card of hardship, loss, isolation, abandonment, struggle, and alienation. The card shows two people walking through icy wind and snow. Both of them are dressed in rags, and they are clearly struggling. Behind them is a church where they can seek shelter, if only they would go inside.
The Five of Pentacles reminds us that struggle and loss is part of the process. It is part of life, and often, it’s part of our romantic relationships as well. From our struggles, we learn how to become better partners and how to choose better partners for ourselves. This is a reminder that even when things look negative, we can still take away with us the positive: the lessons we’ve learned.
If you are asking about how someone sees you, and you draw the Five of Pentacles, that means this person sees you as a drainer of hope. Despair lingers inside of them. They see you as a negative force in their life. You can change this, but in order to make a meaningful relationship with this person, you must change how they see you.
The Five of Pentacles means that they see you as walled off. They feel distanced from you. Something between you is creating a barricade for the sharing of true feelings. They want to be honest with how they see you, but they cannot afford to lose you.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Five of Pentacles is a sign that they see you as not a good fit for them. This is simply their initial reaction, and things could change if you decide to not give up on them. However, sometimes the chemistry of two people is not meant to be, and you do not want to waste your time starting a relationship if this is your situation.
For existing relationships, the Five of Pentacles means that they see you as a low point in their life. The relationship has not been going well. You both feel like you cannot do anything right when it comes to pleasing each other. The relationship has come a long way, and it would be a tragedy for it to end now. Be honest with each other about what you need from the relationship and work on inspiring each other to do better and be more cooperative.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Five of Pentacles shows that they see you as a depressant. Sadness overwhelms them since the end of your relationship. They want to go back. They feel isolated emotionally and physically. Getting back together is certainly a possibility. However, for the relationship to be different from the last, you must both release feelings of negativity.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Five of Pentacles means that they see you as not someone they feel good about. Marriage almost frightens them when they think about it with you. They have doubts about whether the marriage will work. The Five of Pentacles is all about alienation and abandonment, and this is what they fear in marriage with you and anyone else.
