Five of Pentacles & Eight of Swords tarot card combinations
Cards combination description
finance or debt problem, an unexpected bill could leave you in a fix.
Card 1 - 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. Full card's description
Card 2 - Eight of Swords
On the Eight of Swords is a woman who is tied up and blindfolded. There are eight swords placed strategically around her in a way that restricts her movement as though she is in some kind of trap or jail. However, it seems as though whoever built the trap was a little lazy or hasty, leaving some open space where she could escape. But because of the blindfold preventing the woman from seeing, she has no way of finding her way out of this trap. The barren land around her might signify a lack of creativity of some sort, while the grey sky in the background can signify despair, since there she feels that there is no hope of her breaking free from the kind of situation that she is bound to. If only she could take the blindfold off, she would see that she could simply just walk out of this situation. Full card's description
“out of the frying pan…” possibly not a wise move at this time, but in reverse order (Ten of Wands > Eight of Cups) a good one – moving on from something that felt heavy-duty and put you under pressure.
