The Five of Pentacles woman isn’t looking at anything, though her body does face the two previous cards, closing the cycle nicely. She is wrapped in despair, worried about her physical situation, her family, her finances. While I can see myself in her, that isn’t an answer to the questions posed by the Six of Wands.
