Five of Pentacles
This tarot card is the card of victory after a struggle. We are warned that we are entering a phase that will spring surprises in the form of challenges, but our willpower will ensure we overcome. There is light at the end of the tunnel, so we need to persevere, and stand our ground in the face of obstacles. We may also be devoid of support in this journey, as loved ones may not be as compassionate as we expect. In such a scenario, we must introspect and move forward on the strength of our inner faith and self-belief.
The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
