Suit of Pentacles

Pentacles make up 14 of the 56 Minor Arcana Tarot cards. These cards are Ace through 10, and the court cards, which are the Page, Knight, Queen, and King. The symbol on each of these cards is a gold coin with a pentacle on it. These coins are either a beautiful ornament, a fruit, or the product of a craft yet to be mastered. It is not a stretch to say that the lesson behind each image is work-related. The most common interpretation of the Suit of Pentacles in a Tarot reading is that we are dealing with matters related to finance. However, a person's self-worth, their way of valuing interpersonal relationships, and their experiences also have a direct connection with the message of this suit. Furthermore, when interpreting this suit, the reader must also consider the value or importance that a person gives to business and their loved ones.
