The Minor Arcanas - Pentacles
The Minor Arcanas - Pentacles
Ace of Pentacles
New luck, health or money for a new “job”. There is no desire to burn, or flow or fly; here is a physical need to be grounded, to do solid work, make, create and touch. Like a seed in the ground, there is a desire to sprout roots and just becomeĀ .
Two of Pentacles
Standing before the waves of an ocean, a fellow deftly juggles two pentacles. Is the meaning quite clear now? Yes, the instinctive knowledge of how to juggle finances, a check book, or jobs. As with the swords, you can’t keep at it forever, but it is a good use to put your money or hard work to until your ship comes in. This is what the background waves are all about – keep juggling, relief is on its way.

Three of Pentacles
A craftsman shows off his work of three pentacles in an arch to a pair of potential patrons. This is the craftsman’s card and it indicates creating something that brings in patronage. The Querent has created, well, more work for himself. So promising is what the Querent has done with so little, that money, admiration, and more work is coming their way, enough to get them out of the juggling they were doing in the two of pentacles. Health wise, this card can also indicate positive results.

Four of Pentacles
A man holds tight to his four pentacles in this card. And in this case, the refusal to budge may be damaging. This is the miser card. When this card appears it tells the Querent that they’re in a position of status, health, money, even comfort. Solid, and unchanging. But the Querent is too afraid of losing all this.

Five of Pentacles
Two poor folk sit outside a church with five pentacles on its stained glass window. This is a card that predicts loss, financial loss, bad luck, a set-back in health. It is a difficult time. The Querent must understand that while they may have lost material things, the spiritual is still with them. Where there is life, there is hope. They should also be advised that this too will pass. Though it may seem like there is no end in sight, there is. We all go through lean and lonely times. Things will get better.

Six of Pentacles
A wealthy man holding scales hands out money to the poor. The prediction of this card is that money, work or heath woes can be solved by way of a gift, benefit, free promotional items or scholarship.

Seven of Pentacles
Ultimately, the sevens share that message, hold out, be patient, don’t rush, go around. Be in control of yourself and you can be in control of this situation

Eight of Pentacles
An apprentice works on eight pentacles. This is the apprentice card. It is a card of starting over, doing something new or perhaps just expanding. The Querent needs to be told to keep up their courage and rewards will come their way.

Nine of Pentacles
This card signifies a lucky windfall or payment for work well done, enough to buy what you most want. Everything is lovely, luxurious. The physical things the Querent has been seeking, things they wanted but
were unable to buy, they will finally be able to have.

Ten of Pentacles
This is the pinnacle of prosperity, material goods that last instead of being temporary; this is a family home bought and paid for, a business you can pass onto your children.
