Tarot Card meaning for the Ace of Pentacles

In the Ace of Pentacles, we see a hand holding a Pentacle, which is coming out of a cloud. This card indicates that we may get an opportunity to do or have something valuable in our lives - or we could be the ones giving the valuable thing. We could also hope that we were given this chance, a chance to get more….. (e.g. money, free time, a nicer job etc.).

The Ace of Pentacles as a day card

Today you might get the opportunity to do something you value, or give something valuable to someone else (this could be our time, a listening ear). What could this be for you?
Reversely, if we don’t pay attention we might miss out on the opportunity to give or receive. Or what we give and receive might be not as valuable. How could we change this?

Negative or reversed meaning for this card

This Ace has for me a bit more imagery than the other Aces in the Rider Waite deck. It shows a hand and the Pentacle but on the background appears to be a garden. If we look at a reversed or negative meaning for this Tarot card than it could mean that we might ignore or not see what is being offered to us. We might walk through this garden without fully having seen its potential, its value. When you get this card in a reading make sure you figure out what this hand is offering you.

How this card could present itself in real life

Recently at my day job I have been given a hand up to a higher position. Not only did it give me more pay but it also gives me more experience and an opportunity to see things from another perspective. I was somewhat hesitant but grateful for the opportunity that was given to me initially. However, now I have fully embraced the wealth of this offer and the potential for my future career. I have been feeling very lucky but of course you have to acknowledge opportunities when they arise otherwise you will not become lucky, which is exactly what this card hones in on.

How this card is represented in other Tarot decks

In the Crowley Tarot the Ace of Pentacles, is quietly powerful; a simple pentacle with different circles around it to show its radiating effect this card can have on your life.

The Pentacles represent the element earth so in the Celtic Dragon Tarot we see the baby dragons being born in a forest admits the roots of an old tree. This is clearly a very earthy image it gives a good basis for the dragons to start this new suit.

In the Osho Zen deck this card is called maturity and hones in on the stage where we are centred and at peace or grounded within ourselves.
