The Suit of Coins, or Pentacles

Note: There is a lot to say for every card, but the actual meaning depends on the question that was asked. I am including a sentence or two to give an idea of the flavor of each card, though there is a lot of detail and information expanded upon in the video.

The Suit of Coins, or Pentacles

Here are links to videos for the Ace through to the Ten of Coins. The King, Queen, Knight and Page of Coins are accessible via this link to the Court Cards section.

The Suit of Coins, or Pentacles (since there is a five-pointed star on the coin) obviously represent money, and may get us to consider the cost of an action in dollars or Euros of whatever the local currency is. When reversed, the card may be pointing to loss of income, or greater cost than expected; or it can be getting us to do something rather than nothing, since the cost of not acting will be high.

Coins can also, and perhaps more importantly, represent values, or what we care about. In this way, a Coin card, upright or reversed, in a relationship question can indicate that it is important to know what the relationship is for, or where it is leading, and for the different people involved to know that the relationship is something they care about. If it’s not, then why stay in it? You can be better off finding someone you are in harmony with, and if that person isn’t around at present, be patient and change yourself – which will change the type of people you attract into your life.


Ace of Coins.
A fresh start, so think about the long term future and make sure you’re going in the direction you want. If not, make some changes before you get going and they’ll be easy to implement. Reversed, if or when you try to make it all up as you go along, you can get confused, or indecisive and that takes you from bad to worse. It’s better to have and know your policy.

If you practice and repeat the exercise, you can become quite skilled at something, or maybe we should say we can become skilled at anything. There is hope for us. We can be independent. Reversed, make sure you are balanced and that your foundation will actually support you in what you want to achieve.

Even when you are the skilled one, or the one with the expertise, you may have to wait for input orĀ  instructions from others. Reversed, people can be quite skilled, but be in the wrong situation so it can be important to examine your surroundings in order to be clear about what is required.

4 of Coins.
This picture looks like stability and fixity of purpose; the person or the situation will not be easily moved, so if you want to make changes, you will have to work hard. Reversed, stability may have turned into unwillingness to consider anything that is different or challenging to the normal way of doing things.

5 of Coins.
Life is cold and hard if you’re outside in the snow – but if you are part of a group, or have backing, there will be support and you experience warmth and comfort that is denied to independent operators. Reversed, we can imagine loss and ongoing difficulties until you think through your plans and make allowances for weaknesses that you didn’t see before.

6 of Coins.
When we help others, we all benefit, so it’s worth doing and it’s ok to do it for selfish purposes. You don’t have to feel altruistic. You might want reassurance or a guarantee before you give, but even if you get one, it doesn’t mean it will work out, so learn to give just because you can.

7 of Coins.
We have seven days in a week, so the number seven can indicate a complete cycle. Here, there is financial and personal success and you can take some profit, but the person in the picture is thinking before he acts. Reversed, your intuition has deserted you or it cannot be trusted, so use your ability to think and come to a reasonable conclusion to guide you in your current situation.

8 of Coins.
Repetition, practice, refining your skill, careful work and so on give a solid foundation to build on. If you don’t mind doing the work, and focus on doing a good job with what is right in front of you, your success is guaranteed. Reversed, you think that taking short-cuts or cutting corners will produce results, but that’s not the way to go.

9 of Coins.
Success from correct decisions taken over the long-term, so you can look forward to continuing good times in the future on the platform you have constructed. Reversed might mean you don’t experience quite so much success as you expected, but it’s still good, though some thought put into the systems in place would increase benefits.

10 of Coins.
Relaxation since things are nicely in place, people know what their tasks are and are willing to perform them, and there is a good plan being followed. Reversed, this is a 10 that is just before a new beginning so it is worth examining what hasn’t worked in the past so you can do something a bit or a lot different in the future.
