Ace of Pentacles


Key words

Upright: career opportunity, investment, prosperity

Reversed: missed opportunity, disappointment, delay


A hand emerges from the clouds on the left side of the scene, a large gold coin resting in its palm. The sky is gray, and white flowers grow in a garden below. A path winds through the garden, leading to an archway covered in greenery. Through the arch, mountains can be seen in the distance. 


1: Potential, beginnings, opportunity, inspiration, creation


If you are willing to put in some hard work, you will see success. The Ace of Pentacles invites you to create a plan and take the first steps toward acting on it. If you have been contemplating a career move, start polishing your resume— you don’t need to find a new job tomorrow; set yourself up for a successful search process and go at your own pace. Regardless of the goal you’re trying to achieve, act with common sense and think practically.


You may have missed an opportunity because you were unprepared and hesitant to act, but there is still a path forward. If you’re focused on disappointment you may miss future opportunities, creating a negative feedback loop. If you are considering taking a risk, make sure you have a Plan B or a financial cushion to land on.
