Estate: The Third Estate (Merchants, Artisans, Town-dwellers)
Playing Card Suit: Diamonds
Physical Body, Wealth
The Suit of Pentacles Meaning represent the solid nature of earth and the fundamentals of wealth and prosperity. It deals with all forms of industry, whether the maintenance of home, the pursuit of a career, or the mere shepherding of wealth.
If we are called to take immaterial things and change them into material things, the Suit of Earth will be called on. This suit is also known by various names such as the suit of coins, discs, pentacles, gold, diamonds or cash. This is the fourth suit of the Minor Arcana of the Rider Waite deck and stands for the material aspects of your life.
If the Suit of earth is prevalent in your tarot reading, it represents a prevalence of situations in your life centering on health or prosperity. Career and production will be important at this time, including to a lesser degree aspects of education and the building of one’s career, home life, and future security.
But the suit of Earth also deals with the corporeal aspects of our existence. Where the Suit of Water focuses it’s attention on the healing aspect of our health, as well as the emotional and psychological aspects of the same, the Suit of Earth deals with the physical aspects of our health. When the Suit of Earth is speaking on health issues, it will be a foundational and often long-term effect of the same.
The negative characteristics of this suit speak about new beginning when you still do not have financial security. Or it might also show your obsession with power, money and fame. You might become possessive about your belongings and weigh everything and everyone in the balance of wealth. This will only lead to unhappiness, stress and anxiety.
