Ace of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings
A full moon rises as a large golden coin, indicating money, adorns verdant countryside, suggesting ripe potential for culminating material efforts. A small stoat observes the territory; the valuable white winter coats (ermine) of these systematic and industrious little creatures were used in medieval garments for royalty and those of high rank, representing diligence to build wealth.
Earth represents material concerns, so the suit of Pentacles usually signifies stability, finances, and material possessions. As all the Aces represent new beginnings, so the Ace of Pentacles indicates the potential for a new beginning in relation to material affairs; laying the groundwork and planting the seeds of prosperity, so it's a promising sign for the future of any new ventures.
The gold coin is symbolic but in today’s world financial transactions are often paper and contractual by nature, so the Ace of Pentacles can represent documents of material significance. Traditionally, this card represented gifts of gold and sometimes this can still hold true.
If reversed or badly aspected: financial problems and financial instability, misappropriation of funds, corruption, backhanders, money wasted, or materialistic values.
