Ace of Pentacles




Upright position:


Satisfaction, happiness, financial success, gold, recognition, emotional stability, material abundance, achievements, accomplishment of desires


The Ace of Pentacles is likely to find you enjoying a new beginning on several levels, and this is a very positive new beginning. Your health and vitality is likely to be at a high point. The appearance of this card is usually the sign of a turn for the better in terms of fortune and wealth, and sometimes it can even indicate gifts of money, or inheritance from unexpected sources but it certainly doesn't mean that someone has to pass over for you to receive this inheritance.

General: You are likely to be feeling optimistic, upbeat, and hopeful about your future. Things should be going well, in general. You could well be starting something new very soon, this could be in the realm of work or personally, but either way, it's a good thing.

Work: You may be moving to a new position or a new set of responsibilities. If you're wondering whether or not to leave your current position, this card is an encouraging one to see. This new position may happen whether you are looking for it or not. Either way, this is good news.

Love: If you are currently in a committed relationship, it may well rise to new and better heights soon. You will re-connect. If you're looking for love, this is a very positive time to get out and meet people, something new could start that is very promising in terms of love. Be prepared. Think positively. Have fun.

Finances: Money is looking to be much more available for you when the Ace of Pentacles appears. You are likely to be able to pay off debts and there will even be an ability to share your wealth with those less fortunate than you. This is not a time to spend everything you get, however. Plan for a rainy day.

Health: This is a great time to try a new health care approach, especially preventative care. Exercise, eating well, and making sure that you get enough sleep are all common sense approaches that you can revisit now with great success. You may stumble across health information that is very helpful. Don't hesitate to try a new healer or to seek a second opinion now, if you need that. Health looks promising.

Spirituality: Try something new regarding spirituality. Go to a different place of worship, if you always are private about your spirituality try reaching out to others who may think as you do.




Reversed position:


Mercantilism, egocentrism, excitement, money and public roles exaggerated, the quest for comfort, luxury, boredom, routine


The reversed Ace of Pentacles can indicate that you are worrying too much about money. Yes, we all need to pay attention to our finances, but to be overly concerned can steal our capacity for happiness in the present moment. Count your blessings. Do what you can, and leave the rest to the universe.

General: The time may be approaching that will call you to go out into the world in a different and bigger way to make a living. Don't avoid this, just do it. You will do fine. Don't let yourself get mired in jealousy about other people's finances.

Work: When you draw the reversed Ace of Pentacles, you may need to consider asking for more responsibility at work or a promotion. If you're thinking about leaving your current position, this card tells you that leaving is likely to be a very good thing. All in all, the reversed Ace says good things are (or will soon be) happening on the work front.

Love: The reversed Ace carries a warning to look out for possible issues of greed and jealousy if you are currently in a committed relationship. Don't compare yourselves to each other, be a team. If you are looking for love, this is a clear signal that the time may be drawing near that you could meet someone wonderful, either through your work or theirs. Be friendly, and get out and mingle.

Finances: When the reversed Ace of Pentacles appears, it's important that you don't allow yourself to think too negatively about money. Yes, other people have more, but your finances are generally stable and are going to stay stable when this card appears. Think positively, and make the best of what you have.

Health: You don't have to spend a fortune to get and stay healthy. Simple things help support your health and many things are under your direct control, such as thinking positively, eating well, resting, getting exercise, and so on. Start small. Live one day at a time.

Spirituality: The reversed Ace is a signal that you may benefit greatly from increased contact with people who are on a spiritual path; whether that's a path that's very similar to your own or whether you wish to learn more about very different ways of looking at things is up to you. The point is to go out into the world, and learn more about what others are saying, thinking, and experiencing.
