The Suit of Pentacles is associated with the element of earth. This suit is very grounded, practical and hardworking. Concerned with matters of the material world, this isn’t a very spiritual suit, but it does have a love for nature and abundance. Sometimes called the Suit of Coins, it is also associated with money and financial concerns.
Often associated with The Empress, pentacles is nurturing and fertile. Let’s see how these qualities play out in the Court cards.
Page of Pentacles: This Page works and studies hard. They want to explore the world around them and work with their hands. This card may represent someone undertaking an apprenticeship. They might have a lot of hobbies, particularly practical ones. The Page of Pentacles sees the value in investing time and resources into a particular goal so that they can reap the rewards later. They are adventurous and may enjoy travelling. They care for their community and like to help others.
Knight of Pentacles: The Knight of Pentacles doesn’t know how to give up. They are responsible and productive. They are the least impulsive of the Knights, but still may take things to extremes. They are very focused but may burn themself out very fast. Determined and committed, they may experience inertia due to being so grounded.
Queen of Pentacles: The Queen of Pentacles is an expert in nurturing others and creating abundance. Sensual and strong, they love the natural world and feel intrinsically part of it. They are generous and interested in the mundane matters of the world, rather than anything too abstract. This person has accomplished much in their life, and manages to keep an excellent work-life balance. They cradle a rabbit in their arms, able to comfort nervous and fragile beings. Stability is hugely important to this Queen.
King of Pentacles: Materialistic in both good and bad ways, this King is good at business and has a well-developed professional life. They are generous and wealthy. They love luxury and want to share that with others. They may have started out with little and created this life for themself, as pentacles values hard work and achieving things by yourself. This King is a kind leader, but may assume that everyone wants the same things as them and not be able to see things from other perspectives.
