Six of pentacles

We got a break! Now we must not rest on our laurels but work hard to prove ourselves.

Six of pentaclesThe Six of Coins indicates that we got more than we deserved and basically have more luck than brains.

Although the card indicates victory we have to understand that we have been given a rare chance. We need to be aware of our tendency to rest on our laurels and do nothing, and especially in this case must work hard and prove that we are worthy of the opportunity we got.

For example, we might have scored a lucrative position with the employer assuming we master a certain software application -but in actuality we do not. What we really got is a grace period in which we need to work hard, quickly learn the application and prove our mastery of it.


Areas of particular relevance: Luck, chance, generosity, donations, giving and accepting help rest on our laurels.

Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships Unexpected success, getting a second chance, our spouse accepts us as we are Tendency to idealize the other party, trusting our physical appearance and prosperity and put no additional effort
Career Unexpected promotion and success, getting help, getting a break although we have yet to prove ourselves Tendency to trust our luck, not tying the loose ends, inability to reach financial independence, tendency to rest on our laurels


Five of pentacles

We feel threatened and are about to respond in a destructive manner -paying consequently a terrible price. It is crucial that we decipher reality properly and act accordingly. But, if we already acted wrongly we must forgive ourselves and move on.

Five of pentaclesThe Five of Coins, one of the worst cards in the Tarot deck, can show that we experience a real loss and go through a crisis. Knowing that the bad situation we find ourselves in is a direct consequence of our own actions does not make it any easier for us. But, it is important to understand that under the circumstances we had no choice and simply had to respond in the way we did due to the mental distress we experienced.

In the previous stage of the process, the Four of Coins, there was no real threat but we nevertheless felt threatened and started to walk a slippery slope. Since we did not handle the problem correctly, as time went by our reactions worsened until we did what got us to our present situation.

If the card relates to a future question, there is a possibility to avoid the associated pain and sorrow –but only if we handle the problem we face –as represented by the Four of Coins.

Areas of particular relevance: Financial loss, self destructiveness, bachelorhood.

Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships ________ Unfaithfulness, tendency to ruin the relationship, self destructiveness, the stage of bachelorhood and inability to move on
Career ________ Financial loss, failure due to a rush action, acting under pressure, wrong assumptions leading to bad decisions


Three of pentacles

We are confident in our position in life, a perception which is shared by people in our immediate surroundings, such as employer, family and friends who reward us accordingly.

Three of pentaclesThe Three of Coins is a joyous card which indicates a true cause for a celebration. We receive both an acknowledgement for our hard-gained skills, as well as tangible compensation in the form of a monetary prize or some other benefit.

After discovering our needs, becoming a professional and learning how to enjoy our occupation, we can build ourselves a solid foundation in life. Thanks to our talent, focus and persistence we are now prospering and enjoying the abundance life has to offer.

The Three of Coins is a blessing for relationships: like the Three of Wands it indicates the understanding and acceptance of the other party as the “one” for us.  But the Three of Coins indicates taking a step further such as moving-in together, tying the knot, or having children.

Areas of particular relevance: financial growth, promotion, acknowledgement of skills and talent.

Career Promotion, recognition and positive evaluation of our skills and talent, monetary gain, financial growth ________


Two of pentacles

We wonder what needs to be done but in actuality we already know the answer! Everything is set and ready for the right action –all we have to do is ignore the restrictions we face and act.

Two of pentaclesThe card Two of Coins presents us with a rare opportunity: If we act we can reach satisfaction and happiness in all areas of life. But something holds us back so we constantly find reasons and excuses why we should not take action.

We seem to debate and consider our options but in reality we just hide behind our indecision so we will not have to act. Deep inside we know the answer: we simply have to ask ourselves what we would have done in a perfect world and act accordingly -leaving limitations and practical considerations behind.

It is important to understand that we must be true to ourselves and only do that which is truly right for us. Otherwise, the truth will haunt us and we will find ourselves unsatisfied in all areas of life.

Areas of particular relevance: Self destruction, indecision, choosing the wrong option, looking for problems where there are none.

Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships A good healthy relationship, variety in the relationship will spice things up and create additional interest Too many debates and indecisions, our need to be certain prohibits progress, we are waiting for the perfect thing –which will never come, lack of action
Career A good time to invest in what we believe in and take risks Too many worries, making no progress, lack of variety, clinging to the known and familiar, indecision


Knight of pentacles

The Indecisive

Knight of pentaclesAlthough we are ready to do so, we still hesitate and do not advance to the next level. We are looking for confirmation from our surroundings -a confirmation that will not come. Consequently we will make no progress on the matter at hand.

Correction: although we are still not sure we are on the right track we have to continue acting and moving forward in our chosen path. Once we do so we will realize it was the right thing to do.

The Knight of Coins indicates that we must be so sure of our actions that we will not move forward before getting approval from our immediate surroundings. But the “go ahead” signal will never come, forcing us to move forward on our own.

We all wait for the right time and the right circumstances. We all say “when we get a raise…” or “at the end of the year…” But the time for us to act is now! Although we are still not convinced that we are doing the right thing regarding the topic at hand, the card indicates that this is exactly what we should do. When we finally act the Knight will turn into Ace of pentacles and we will understand it was indeed the right action to take.

Areas of particular relevance: Commerce, trade, craftsmanship.

  Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships We do not give up, stay in a relationship and fight despite the difficulties We are waiting for approval, hesitate, do not initiate
Career We are good employees, have high work standards but only invest the bare minimum We lack motivation, do not move things forward

King of Pentacles

The General Manager

King of PentaclesWe are motivated by a need for independence and financial fulfillment. We focus on our careers, tend to be over-achievers and are very goal orientated –all of which hinders our ability to focus on family, friends and relationships.

We must thoroughly check our goals in life and make sure these goals do not come on account of the things we value in our lives such as family, friends and relationships.
