The Ace of Pentacles

Ace of Pentacles

Have you ever wondered why the Ace of Pentacles is the most searched for tarot card online today?

The Tarot Aces are most often welcomed in a draw, as they inspire newness in many aspects: growth, challenges, ideas, love, opportunities, perspectives… New everything! They are usually seen as positive, if you are ready for change or to see things with a new vision. Aces are the root force, the spark or seed of the suit. They have no purpose yet, but are filled with raw potential. They are the active energy of the suit ready to be used. They can also indicate compass direction or season. They represent the seed of potential, the potential of what could happen next, because it hasn’t yet fully manifested. And within any Tarot reading, the Aces show us that possibility. It’s up to us to turn it into something further.

The Suit of Pentacles covers material aspects of life including work, business, trade, property, money and other material possessions. The positive aspects of the Suit of Pentacles include manifestation, realisation, proof and prosperity. Pentacles deal with the physical or external level of consciousness and thus mirror the outer situations of your health, finances, work, and creativity. They have to do with what we make of our outer surroundings – how we create it, shape it, transform it and grow it. On a more esoteric level, Pentacles are associated with the ego, self-esteem and self-image. The negative aspects of the Suit of Pentacles include being possessive, greedy, overly materialistic, over-indulging and not exercising, not effectively managing, finances, being overly focused on career

Upright Meanings: investments, stability, happiness, financial new beginning, abundance, new job, money, new business, prosperity, savings, new financial opportunities, pleasure, security

Reversed Meanings: greedy, scarcity, financial delays, deficiency, stinginess, lack of planning, money, excessive spending, poor financial control, instability, lack of opportunities or lost opportunities, greed, lack of money, insecurity, misery

You would think that most of the interest in the Ace of Pentacles would be new beginnings in the area of money or career and in truth that accounts for some of it’s popularity. Sadly though, the main reason for it’s sudden claim to fame is the current fad for instant answers for affairs of the heart. It’s promise of new beginnings heralds the way for those with unrequited love to hold hope for the future with the target of their affections.  In many women’s lives, but less so men, there is an obsession with attracting love that goes beyond reason.

Today’s interest in Wicca and witch spells is massively influenced by the same issues of love and romance, attracting the one we love, keeping his affections and of course, getting him back after a breakup.  So I am going to say one final word on the subject.  If you draw the Ace of Pentacles in your tarot reading please consider that whilst it may mean what you are hoping it does, it is far, far more likely that new beginnings means, you find love elsewhere, he is NOT coming back to you, the split IS going to happen.  So sorry the break your heart but it will mend.  I hope you are one of the few and it works out for you but please be ready to move on!
