The Suit of Pentacles Tarot

The Suit of Pentacles

The suit of Pentacles, or Deniers, corresponds with our material existence. These cards cover all aspects of finance, such as gains and losses through commercial activities, the risks and challenges of new commercial ventures, and sometimes litigation connected with financial concerns. It also concerns the commencement and award of stability and financial security and the worth we place on our own achievements. Pentacles can signify training in commercial, scientific, and creative fields resulting in status, a well-paid living, and monetary rewards. Professions such as financial management, teaching, chemistry, medicine, journalism, and commercial art are particularly aligned with the Pentacles suit. These cards can imply generous help from wealthy, powerful people, inheritance, and the founding of a family fortune. On the negative side, they may also denote a bleak period of worry and isolation caused by unemployment, disappointment in money or career, and meanness verging on miserliness. Pentacles tell us that money is the root of all evil and that misusing it- by either worshipping or despising it brings extreme suffering and spiritual poverty. In a spread where kindly, emotional Cups predominate alongside Pentacles, the querent cares for others or is interested in healing or drama. If the older male court cards from the Swords suit, the Emperor, or Justice are close to the same cards, it can indicate a career in politics.
