ACE OF PENTACLES
Keyword: Reward, manifestation, security, wealth, new enterprise, success

Perfect contentment, felicity, ecstasy; also speedy intelligence; gold. Beginning of prosperity and successful ventures. Beginning of wealth and material success. Or the beginning of a passionate relationship. Gold, prosperity combined with pleasure and beauty. On an inner level, this card of good fortune bestows the great gift of knowledge and the materialization of ideas. For earthly benefits, this is the one of the most favourable of all the cards. Now there is a great sense of stability and earthly power. You will have enough resources to do and have whatever you may wish. Gifts of inheritances may be indicated and desired material gains will be forthcoming. Your business activities will expand on a secure foundation. A new beginning regarding material wealth and practical affairs is at hand. If investments have been properly handled, much profit and wealth will accrue.

Rev. False security. Great plans may not materialize. Miserly. Greed. False start. Comfortable material conditions, which may not be to the advantage of the client. The evil side of wealth, bad intelligence; also great riches.

TWO OF PENTACLES
Keyword: Change, balance, adaptability, harmony in change

On the one hand it is represented as a card of gaiety, recreation and its connections, which is the subject of the design; but it is read also as news and messages in writing, as obstacles, agitation, trouble, embroilment. Trying to cope with two situations. Much more will be achieved if a decision is made. It can be done. Ability to juggle two situations at once. A job or opportunity in two parts – or the need to give equal attention to key aspects of one's life. Lightheartedness, gaiety. Recreation. Harmony in midst of change. New projects may be difficult to launch. News and messages in writing. A nature industrious yet unreliable, elated then melancholic. With change, comes the growth that runs throughout one's life. The growth from child to young adult and from young adult to old age is meaningless without the accompaniment of the wisdom accumulated with the changing seasons of our lives. You have endured changes in the past, both comforting and uncomfortable, and are now being called upon to do so again. You must remain flexible and see change as opportunity, as you ride upon the flowing waves of life.

Rev. Plans will probably not run smoothly. Need for more organization. Enforced gaiety; inability to handle several situations at once. Simulated enjoyment. Enforced gaiety, simulated enjoyment, literal sense, handwriting, composition, letters of exchange.

THREE OF PENTACLES
Keyword: Work, negotiation, skill, employment, teamwork

Metier , trade, skilled labour; usually, however, regarded as a card of nobility, aristocracy, renown, glory. Well-informed, you have great skill, ability and talent. Recognition is due. Material increase. The master craftsman; the skilled artist. Gain in commercial transaction. The need to repair, correct or make adjustments in a plan. This card is for members of the Masons and other groups and societies. Though obstacles may stand in the way, look forward to achieving a distant goal. Work shared is work halved. Shared burdens are lighter; a friend or a fellow worker will be helpful. Satisfaction will be the reward of consistent effort with a partner. Do not try to do the job yourself. Choose only a partner who is willing to work as conscientiously as you. This is a time to roll up your sleeves and realize the rewards of tasks thoroughly and well executed for their own sakes. Can sometimes indicate the need to make repairs or improvements around one's home.

Rev. Insufficient experience. You need to learn more. Lack of skill, ignorance. Selfishness. Commonplace ideals. Pre-occupation with gain. Mediocrity in work and otherwise, puerility, pettiness, weakness.

FOUR OF PENTACLES
Keyword: Possessiveness, control, stability, security

The surety of possessions, cleaving to that which one has, gifts, legacy, inheritance. Strong attachment to materialistic pursuits and endeavours. Firmly footed. Keep control. Assured material gain, success. Earthly power, but leading to nothing beyond it. Gifts, legacy, inheritance. May indicate a miserly, ungenerous character. The lesson to be learned here is that real power cannot be won with increased wealth. Material gains will not satisfy your need for security in this world of change, because true security comes from within. You must reflect on the quality of your own values and self-worth, for these are precious things that cannot be taken from you, only given away, by your own thoughts and actions. Guard against selfishness and over-protectiveness. Your precious material possessions, as beautiful as they may be, are not always able to bring happiness. Can indicate a move to a neighbouring community, or the ability to keep things together.

Rev. Loss and obstacles. Prejudice, covetousness, suspicion. Hindrances. Setbacks in material ambitions. The spendthrift too free with money. Chance of loss of earthly possessions. Suspense, delay, opposition.

FIVE OF PENTACLES
Keyword: Anxiety, isolation, insecurity, worry, loss, dependence

It foretells material trouble above all, whether in the form of destitution –or otherwise. For some it is a card of love and lovers –wife, husband, friend, mistress; also concordance, affinities. These alternatives cannot be harmonized.Take time to review what is happening in your life and what you want. Don't be afraid. Listen to your higher self and open the gate of opportunity. Unemployment, destitution. Loss of home. Loneliness. Lovers unable to find a meeting place. Affinities discovered through similar troubles. Dark night of the soul. Though hardship rules this card, the couple has a certain valiant energy. You must not expend your vitality by worrying about the future but handle things day by day as they appear. In this way, despite hard times and poverty, you will be guided towards positive situations. This is a time of testing. If you can learn to understand and thereby control your anxiety, you will certainly be rewarded in the future. Can speak to a dependent or injured male, someone who is having trouble keeping pace with their mates, and help coming from some institution or spiritual community.

Rev. Accept the karmic lesson. Try to understand your burdens. Money regained after severe toil. New employment, but may not be permanent. Charity. New interest in spiritual matters. Disorder, chaos, ruin, discord, profligacy.

SEVEN OF PENTACLES
Keyword: Frustration, vision, perseverance, profit

These are exceedingly contradictory; in the main, it is a card of money, business, barter; but one reading gives altercation, quarrel; and another innocence, ingenuity, purgation. A cycle of change will affect your home for the better. Expand – don't be afraid of success. Pause during the development of an enterprise. Unprofitable speculation. Loss of promising fortune. Disappointment. Anxiety about a loan. Success not attained. Fear of failing, or indulging in worry about future results will not determine a favourable outcome. You must maintain a strong desire to achieve, even in the face of defeat. The roots have dug deeply into the soil and the garden will bloom again in its own time. Remember that it is neither profitable nor necessary to continually measure the growth of your project. Look to your resources – you have what you need to accomplish your goals, but may be ignoring something that is useful to you.

Rev. Anxiety and depression, possibly relating to finances. Impatience. Little gain after much work. Anxiety about a loan, money.

An unexpected source may add to your income but take care that you don't also gain weight as a result of feelings of accumulation and increase. For women, this often speaks to a need to seek an independent lifestyle for a period, to let go of the need for romance as you focus on career and other personal goals.
