Function: Belongings, wealth, tangible objects, practicality
This is a very welcoming card, an invitation to paradise and a place of security. It is not quite in front of the person, but they will soon reach it with a short walk if they are willing to make the effort. A giant hand comes out of heaven, offering light to help them on their way, but not to do all of the work.
In the palm of the giant hand, there is one enormous gold coin, which is why this suit is sometimes called the Coins. On the face of the coin, there is a pentacle. It looks just like the sun high up in the sky. The pentacle is a five-pointed star. All of the lines are connected to represent the equilibrium between the elements and the spirit.
The hand doesn’t hold the pentacle tight. Instead, it seems to be supporting it. The hand is not about to do anything with the pentacle, but it is just showing the reader what it has.
The whole pentacle suit is related to material wealth. It shows you what can be achieved with what you have in the present, what you can hold in your hands, and with what you can give. This card can also signify the importance of sharing. The hand has chosen to offer the power of the pentacle as a source of help to the tired traveler when it could keep it all to itself.
As a more literal meaning, the pentacle could be used as a bargaining tool. By making your way along the path, through the garden and then onto the mountain, you will be rewarded with wisdom and other benefits of the pentacle. Nobody gets anything in life for free. This is not intended to be a harsh lesson, just a reminder that there are limited resources in the world, and limited time.
The path is paved with lilies, a sign of purity and innocence. The entrance to the garden is a beautiful green arch with red fruit, the colors of life and magic, respectively. The mountain in the distance is a sign of strength and stability, it’s endurance against time and the elements.
The sky is completely clear, just endless white like a blank page on which you get to write your story when your journey comes to an end. Remember that wealth brings you liberty and when you have all that you need, you are able to follow your dreams and desires without concern for what will be available the next day. If something exists in the present, there is no sense in worrying about whether it will still be there in the future. Accept the gifts on offer today.
In the inverted position, it is possible that you have missed an opportunity that could have led you to material gain. You might have completely missed the obvious, or you didn’t have faith at the time. You may also have been too greedy, not seizing a small opportunity because you were holding out for something much grander. It is important that you put the effort into creating a plan so that you avoid disaster in the future.
The Ace of Pentacles in this position may also point to someone who can’t appreciate the value of money or they aren’t inclined to earn what they have. If you feel that you do work hard, it might be that the reward will just come later. Your reward may also come after you face another challenge.
You may have had a privileged upbringing, or you have set yourself up well in the recent past and you are now ready for the next stage. You may have embarked on some form of change and this will soon bring you benefits.
With regards to material wealth, life is good, and you don’t feel the need for more. If something bad does occur, there is no need to see this as a bad sign, but you should learn from it. Now is a good time to start helping others.
You will be able to achieve your material goal, perhaps a new car or even a new house. It is essential to be persistent with your goal. There may be an uphill climb but giving up only leads to failure. This card is an excellent sign that you will accomplish.
The answer will be yes.
