Two of Pentacles

Amid rough times(ocean behind him), the man is able to remain balanced. He juggles more than one situation at a time quite competently.

Reversed

The ships are reversed and it's hard to keep things afloat. There are too many irons in the fire. Too much money is being spent on frivolous things.

Three of Pentacles

There is approval at work, possibly leading to a raise. This card also represents our admission into a club or group.

Reversed

Rewards are not forthcoming. His tools have fallen away and he now cannot work as he intended, resulting in a mediocre finished product.

Four of Pentacles

The man has worked hard for his money and is not about to give any of it up. He has power now, but has made no provisions for the afterlife. He covets all that he has.

Reversed

He's letting go of some money now; spending a little more than anticipated. There may also be a delay in his account being built back up.

Five of Pentacles

The distraught couple is impoverished, both spiritually and materially. Don't they see that help is within reach? And yet they remain unaware and don't know how to repair damage done. This card also symbolizes the loss of a job, depending on surrounding cards.

Reversed

They see a glimmer of hope. A job will be offered, although it very well may be temporary. They have a new found interest in the spiritual aspect of life.

Six of Pentacles

A generous man shares his wealth with the needy. This card signifies the receipt of a bonus, gift, or promotion. He will receive what he deserves.


Reversed

His gift is still coming, but there will be strings attached. It has been distributed unfairly due to unethical business practices.

Seven of Pentacles

He is reaping the rewards from his hard work, but there are still a few things that need to be done, as noted by the Pentacle to the side. He is a bit anxious about a financial matter.

Reversed

He thinks he has been promised a sure thing, but he has been misled. He should not invest his money in any kind of a plan right now. He will lose it.

Eight of Pentacles

This young man is good at what he does. He'll go far because he has learned how to develop his skills. His expertise has culminated in recognition and profit.


Reversed

Because he's having trouble finding his tools, his production is slowing down. Work condtions aren't too good. Perhaps he should consider looking elsewhere.

Nine of Pentacles

Even though she is alone in her garden, the woman is happy. She's successful, but must be a little cautious. She feels a strong connection to nature and animals.

Reversed

Move forward with great care. All she has is slipping away. She needs to be sure others do not take advantage of her good nature. Surrounding cards will explain details of this card.

Ten of Pentacles

This is a content man. He's well-to-do, has pride in his family(Coat of Arms) and has an interest in geneaology. This card also indicates the imminent purchase of a large item.

Reversed

There is a feud over a financial issue, possibly a will. Finances are being squandered. An older relative needs assistance.

Page of Pentacles


Represents: Young man or woman/dark hair and eyes



This page is a very,very cautious person. He studies everything thoroughly before making a decision. He brings good news and information about money.

Reversed

There will be delays in receiving messages. The Page now has trouble following directions. He wants to follow the crowd, which could end up sabotaging plans.

Knight of Pentacles

Represents: Dark man/dark hair and eyes

The Knight holds out the Pentacle, showing us the way to prosperity. He'll take his time to do the job right. He also brings good news, in his own stoic fashion.

Reversed

Now a malcontent, the Knight is having trouble focusing. He wants to be far from the crowds. He is neglectful of his duties and cannot follow through on committments.

Queen of Pentacles

Represents: Mature woman/ dark with dark hair

The Queen of Pentacles is Mother Earth. She resides in a scene of abundance and is more than willing to share. She's not afraid of hard work, and is very productive in almost all that she chooses to undertake.

Reversed

The Queen is moody now. She has lost her independence and is quite mistrustful. Hard financial times are upon her.

King of Pentacles

Represents: Mature man/dark with dark hair

The king holds his scepter and Pentacle with ease. He enjoys power and money equally. He's very congenial and only wants the best for his family. He makes good financial decisions.

Reversed

He loses his scepter and Pentacle. He'd still like to have financial security, but now he has an ulterior motive. He doesn't want to have to work for his money. This man can be very dangerous if he feels someone has acted against him.
