Five of Pentacles
The two unfortunate travelers experience severe hardships: loss of property, income, and health are all indicated in the bleak picture that is the Five of Pentacles. The church in the background is not a refuge for them: either they refuse its charity, do not recognize the opportunity it represents, or find no nourishment there. While a pessimist might focus on what they lack, an optimist would point out that they survive these hard times together, supporting each other. In this case, attitude is everything. Perseverance furthersyour strength lies in those who love you.
