Ace of Pentacles - Minor Arcana Card

Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:

Ace of Pentacles

The Ace of Pentacles is representative of new inspiration, fresh energy, and enterprise. Equivalent to the alchemical element of Earth, the first card in the Suit of Pentacles symbolizes the material world and matters associated with the physical body. A positive card in general, this ace is full of wealth in the financial and holistic sense. We are asked to remember that all manifestation is a product of the Divine—a hand emerging from the sky, clutching opportunity. It is therefore our responsibility to take care in structuring and formulating our plans and projects. Depending on the card’s position (and the card’s surrounding it), the querent may face varying obstacles and distress along the way.

Suggested prompts:

upright: manifestation; new opportunity for ‘wealth’

right: growing partnerships; fleshing out projective ideas

left: reconsidering missed opportunities

reversed: reorienting in relation to obstacles
