King of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings
The King of Pentacles is usually solid, calm and dependable, they’re hardworking and have the ability to work tirelessly from beginning to end on projects. They’re usually quite canny with the pennies too; shrewd and astute they dislike waste and have a good eye for a bargain. The King of Pentacles is a planner and researches things thoroughly. On the downside they can sometimes become set in their ways, be blunt, stubborn, or overly concerned about material matters.
They can occasionally represent moneyed people and landowners, but also the down-to-earth qualities of those that work in practical or earth related trades. We often find them in readings to represent financial managers.
In predictive reading, the Kings and Queens can be taken to indicate the characteristics and personality description of a mature man or woman appearing in a situation, so it can help you to be clear in your interpretation. Everyone tends to have a mixture of all the cards, similar to our astrology chart, so we all have a balance of the elements, but we also tend to have dominant factors, and these are what we look for. In daily life and conversation we often stereotype people when describing to others, so this is a similar approach.
Some readers like to use the Kings and Queens to represent a facet of your personality whereas, due to my style of reading, I prefer to use them to identify specific people, so the Queens would always be women and the Kings always men (regardless of sexual orientation). In terms of astrological sun signs, Pentacles could be taken to represent those of the earth element, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.
Tarot Card Combinations: All the Kings and Queens have positive and negative traits so within the reading the individual meaning is neutral, depicting a particular person, and relying on surrounding cards to see how they impact the seeker. In future positions it may describe someone you don’t know yet but who will be important in a forthcoming situation.
