Confusion

Restriction

The fives usually relay conflict and loss.  I also see them as the middle point, the fulcrum of change as we progress through the story line of the suit in the minors.  The Five of Pentacles has always given me a pause for thought and a bit of confusion.  How can we go from the stinginess of the Miser in the four of pentacles to the open generosity portrayed in the six of pents?  Those views  of pentacles come from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot.  I am not sure what the author is suggesting to us here in this version, except the name sake of the card-Restriction. Yet they don't look restricted, rather the pentacles have broken the bonds that held them. 

I wonder what happens in the between time from one day to the next?  When one day is good and you wake up the next day and the feelings are not so good, just to be rebounded by another pretty good day.   My pentacles are all over the place, maybe I need to put tethers on my thoughts?

    1. How can we wake up one morning and say YAY! and the next yuck... something happens. If we got to sleep on a yay day we should wake up with a yay morning???

  2. I think remembering what loss felt like to me, what that experience was like, can help me be more willing to share with others (time, energy or money).

  3. looking back over the card titles, I think this deck is Thoth based, like my Haindl and Rosetta.

    1. I have not worked with Thoth decks; now you say this is Thoth based. I guess now I have. Deserves some follow up reading on Thoth.

  4. Interesting post to read on the fives. I wonder why this card has three silver discs, a gold and a rose gold while in some of the other cards those colours are melded in each disc?
