The Suite of Pentacles (Also known as Coins)

The suite of Pentacles is sometimes known as the suite of Coins, and this gives us a major clue as to its sphere of influence. Pentacles are primarily concerned with our practical needs. At first, this may seem rather overly materialistic and unrelated to spiritual matters, but if you have ever tried meditating whilst your stomach grumbles to you that it’s hungry, then you’ll know that spiritual work is hampered by any serious lack of material resources. Pentacles can therefore represent money, possessions or resources, but they can also refer to a subject’s sense of self-worth or position in society. They can also suggest what makes a person feel secure or threatened.


Pentacles are associated with the Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. These people are calm, sensible, down-to-earth and good with cash, although they can be rather conservative and status seeking. Pentacles can also describe people with dark or black hair.

Pentacles in a Tarot Reading

If there are a plethora of Pentacles in a Tarot Reading, it suggests that the subject is entering a phase when material concerns become even more significant than usual. However, it is important to remember that this need not be a negative time, it is possible that the subject is about to undergo an improvement in their material circumstances. A large number of Pentacles could also mean that the subject will undergo a change of status. Whilst this could refer to a change in social economic grouping, it may also refer to how they perceive their own significance, rather than how other people see them. When Wands and Pentacles appear together, it may imply that any changes are the result of developments in the subject’s career.
