The Card: Two people in rags are passing a building with a mosaic window containing 5 pentacles. The window is lit from within, it's night and snow is falling. The man is using crutches, looking up at the window as he walks. Where as the woman looks down.
Interpretation: Our two homeless people or beggars are out in the cold snow, while the inside of the building is promising light and warmth. The man is aware that there might lie an opportunity there, but the woman looks like she has accepted a fate. Both of them are going through hardship and difficulties, but do they have to ? The light from the window is inviting them inside, to embrace the power which is theirs, but they have forgotten.
Not only are we operating with pentacles here, there are also 5 of them, a significance. The pentacle can be seen a the four elements, plus a fifth which is spirit. The four elements which is needed for creation is there, along with the spirit of the creator. The creator can also be one of our two friends here. But the step has to be taken.
Prediction: There is hardship on the way, being cast out into the cold. I might be considered an outsider or unworthy, either by myself or others ! But the problems and disconnection is my own doing, by believing in the necessity of hard times. Or perhaps by not believing at all.
Keywords: Difficulty, being cast out, longing for the light, acceptance of fate, the spirit is always there.
