High arcan Devil and low arcan Five of Pentacles and high arcan Devil combination - Excessive debt, overspending.
Devil tarot card

Card 1 - Devil

This card shows the Devil represented in his most well-known satyr form, otherwise known as Baphomet. Along with being half goat and half man, the devil has bat wings and an inverted pentagram on his forehead. He is standing on a pedestal, to which are chained a nude man and woman, as if to show that he has dominion over them. Both the man and the woman have horns, as if to show that the more time they spend with the Devil, the less human they become. The chains make it appear as though the devil has taken them captive. The man has a flame on his tail while a woman has a bowl of grapes on her tail, which symbolizes their addiction to power and finer things in life, respectively.  Looking closely, both the man and the woman don t look happy.  Their individual power has been taken from them, leaving them exposed and ashamed in their nakedness.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Ten of Wands (feeling weighed down) Nine of Swords (stress and anxiety) Eight of Swords (feeling trapped and restricted) all the secrecy cards (Moon, Five of Swords, High Priestess)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Temperance (moderation) The Star (hope and optimism)

Devil combinations
Watch for the cards that surround The Devil, the clearest indication of what the problem concerns usually comes from the card that precedes it.   In simple lines or small groups, watch for Five of Swords and The Devil, or The Devil and The Moon, surrounding and either side of another card as it’s usually a sign of deception and dishonesty – the central card would indicate the area of concern. There are too many combinations to list here but those below provide a small flavour of possibilities...

Five of Pentacles tarot card

Card 2 - Five of Pentacles

Just like the fives of the other suits in the tarot, the Five of Pentacles symbolizes adversity. It shows two individuals walking outside while it is snowing. Not only are they cold, they are also sick, poor, tired, and hungry. It looks as if they are lacking the basic necessities of life. A lot of people can relate to the two individuals in more ways than one. One of the individuals in the card has crutches, while the other figure has a shawl covering her head. She is walking barefoot in the snow. There is a black wall in the background with a stained glass window featuring the five pentacles, suggesting a church of some kind. More often than not, the Five of Pentacles is a bad omen. However, do not fret, as it can change depending on where it is placed in the reading.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Five of Cups (sense of loss) The Four of Cups also contains the warning of not missing a valid opportunity.  

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Nine of Pentacles (financial comfort), Ten of Pentacles (stability), The Star (hope and inspiration), The Sun (abundant blessings).

Five of Pentacles combinations
With all the fives pay particular attention to the card that immediately follows, as this will show how the matter will progress and if it is temporary. The card preceding the five often shows where the problem stems from.
