Tarot Pentacles

The Pentacles Tarot Suit.

The 14 Cards of the Tarot Pentacles Suit and Their Meanings


Pentacles Archetype:
Thought - things of the mind.

Pentacles correspond to Diamonds in a regular deck of cards. Their Greek element is air. They stand for monetary matters, everything about economy, but also thought, communication and other things of the mind. In the four classes of feudal society, this suit is linked to that of trade, merchants and businessmen.





       When a Pentacles card appears in a reading, its message regards matters of economy, but also thoughts, study, plans - anything abstract, present in the mind but not yet in one's hands, either not yet or because of its nature never.

       Here are the 14 cards of the Pentacles suit and what they mean in Tarot card divination (click the card image to see a larger version of it):
