The Base Cards for the Tarot Suit of Pentacles, Ace Through Four

Apr 2, 2008
The pentacle card represent the material things in life. This article will teach you have to use the first four cards in this suit in a tarot deck.

The Ace of Pentacles serves as the structure for any sort of concrete works in the real world. When this card is laid down in a tarot reading, it is the usher of wealth and good fortune about to present themselves. This can include actual money, gifts and even marriage proposals. This is a fertile card, one where thoughts and hopes can grow. There is a slow pace but the payoff is always there. There does need to be a realistic, subdued approach to the wealth acquisition. Hard work will allow for those seeds to reach full growth. Material goods aren't the only bounty associated with this card. Spirituality can flourish under this influence.

The Two of Pentacles carries a duality of change and balance. How can you allow for change while maintaining balance? Think of that term we use so often to describe a busy schedule: "juggling". The juggler is constantly moving the balls, changing their positions and yet he maintains perfect balance. If you try to change life too drastically too fast, those balls can fall. If you refuse to change, the balls stop moving and you're no longer a juggler- you're just a fool standing around holding balls. Understandably, this card appears often in tarot readings when the person in question has many projects going at once. The balls are currently being handled well but it needs to be understood that balance will be the key to keeping them that way in the future. Sometimes it is necessary to trade in the old for the new.

The Three of Pentacles is the sign of work as reward. The card exemplifies those who have found an occupation that satisfies their emotional and mental needs while it provides for their financial health. This seems like it would be a difficult job to find but many people do so with a minimal amount of effort. Responsibility, organization and fair treatment of others will pave the way. But as you are behaving in this way, you will have the freedom to stretch your wings and explore yourself and this new world. With this card there often comes success but that needs to be built on with determination and drive to make it solidify.

The Four of Pentacles represents material gain without the corresponding spiritual or mental gains. It may seem fine to just gain material wealth without the other aspects but their absence can provide a lack of clarity as to what to do with the profit. Chances are, the material wealth will be clutched on to tightly or blown immediately in a spending frenzy. The recipient will become a miser or make themselves broke again. Disappointment is carried in this card, as is frustration. Letting go of your funds in a responsible way will be necessary. This card can also suggest the "letting go" of other things that you are clinging on to- whether material, mental or spiritual.

If you don't manage to learn the lesson of the Four, the fate of the Five of Pentacles may await you- a loss that you could've prevented. Poverty or a loss of spiritual or mental energy comes with the Five of Pentacles. The negative emotions that you were not able to drop will have consequences. Illness, solitude and unemployment are typical here. If this card appears in a tarot reading before a loss has been incurred, know that it is around the corner and prepare for it. Do not become too despondent at the loss as it is a temporary situation meant to show you what you need to let go of. Once the lesson is learned, equilibrium of wealth will return.
