Five of Pentacles Art and Meaning Vivid Waite Smith Deck

Designation

Five of Pentacles

About the Deck

Vivid Waite Smith

These cards are featured in my book, "A Concise Guide to the Tarot" by Loren Lundgren. I took the information for the meanings on these tarot cards from "The Pictorial Key to the Tarot, Being Fragments of a Secret Tradition Under the Veil of Divination", by A. E. Waite, 1911, now in the public domain. I edited the tarot card descriptions and meanings for clarity and brevity, modernizing the text. I scanned in the original black and white illustrations of the cards drawn by Pamela Colman Smith, from the 1911 book. I digitally retouched and painted those illustrations in detailed color.

parents' death will suddenly change your fate. If a man dies whom you first met on a Friday morning, you will have luck in the lottery; but if a woman in black is the first person you meet on a Saturday morning, you will have ill luck in the lottery.
