Book of Trades Tarot (Jost Amman 1588): Five of Wine Jugs
For the purposes of this divination, the suit of Wine Jugs corresponds to the suit of Coins, or the playing card suit of Diamonds. This suit represents the element Earth, and the social class of Merchants. Wine Jugs are considered a Feminine suit. Wine Jugs typically represent material wealth and possessions, the body and health, and the environment of the questioner.
The Fives typically concern negatives such as loss, conflict, strife, struggle, disagreement, disappointment, defeat, sorrow, regrets, and unwilling or unnecessary contributions. Fives may also represent change, renewal, positive struggle, amassing or consolidating forces, and progress.
Isolation. Insecurity. Worry. Financial loss. Poverty.
The Five of Wine Jugs means to lose all faith, lose resources, lose a lover (it often shows up when you've had a breakup), or to lose financial or emotional security (or both). It can refer to the loss of a stable income or a business.
Reversed Meaning: Recovery from financial loss. Spiritual poverty.
The reversed meaning is when hope returns slowly but surely, you can be positive from the troubles you've recently experienced. It often shows up when the questioner is back in a relationship again that was once broken, or has experienced a renewal of faith or a slow cessation of financial problems. The advice of the card is to see a glass as half-full not half-empty, to seek help when you need it and not fear rejection.
