Minor Arcana - Pentacles
Hover over the cards to read their properties.
Pentacles correspond to the element of Earth; the essence of which we are formed and to which our physical bodies must inevitably return. Without Earth, nothing can actualize or become real.
Earth symbolizes physical matter, the body and the adaptations that are necessary to sustain oneself – through food, shelter, health, work, and money.
Pentacles represent the development of the “reality function” or how we physically use our energy to develop the skills and abilities necessary to secure our materialistic possessions. Money is connected with our sense of self-worth and represents how we feel rewarded for our achievements and expended energy.
The Pentacle is a gold coin displaying a five-pointed star which represents humanity. The star with its five points has ancient associations with fertility, the harvest, creativity, protection and the symmetry of the human body.
