Tarot Cards Demystified: The Suit of Pentacles

There are many ways to interpret the symbolism found in Tarot Cards. There are varying points of view that exist about what each card means or represents. This is just one way of interpreting them. When you understand this method you will find it to be extremely accurate.

Tarot Cards have a lot in common with Regular Playing Cards. Both types of cards have four suits. However, the Tarot also has some additional cards that a Regular Playing Card Deck does not have. A Tarot Card Deck has seventy-eight cards.

The suit of Pentacles is similar to Diamonds in a deck of regular playing cards.

Some of the qualities and meanings for the suit of Pentacles are:

* Earth

* Money

* Diamonds (as in regular playing cards)

* Diamonds and other Minerals

* Feminine

* Mother Earth

* Fertility

* Female

* Physical Body

* Material Plane

* Matter

* Industry

* Ego

* Motherhood

* Power

* Dark

* Yin Energy

* Riches, Wealth

* Business

* Banking

* Real Estate

* Land

* Possessions

* Investments

* Income

* Nurturing

* Home

* Security

* Grounding

Read over this list several times while trying toget a sense of the type of energies associatedwith the suit of Pentacles.

Generally, when there are many Pentacle cards in a reading, or Pentacle cards appear in important key placements within a spread of tarot cards, finances or financial situations are probably emphasized in that particular reading.

In the Rider - Waite Tarot deck the Pentacle resembles a large coin. Coins symbolize money and finances. Coins are usually made of gold, silver, copper, nickel or other types of minerals found in the earth.

So the Pentacle represents money, finances and wealth, minerals and metals of all types, the land, earth, and real estate or property ownership.

Pentacles represent anything on the material plane, including the physical body. Pentacles represent physicality, that which is solid, real, grounded, secure, concrete, stable, etc.

When I see the King of Pentacles in a prominent place within a tarot spread, it usually indicates to me that real estate matters are at hand, or the possibility of a real estate transaction, a real estate loan or a move of some sort is coming up shortly.
