Over a well-tended, flowering and abundant garden, a hand cups a great gold disc or coin. This is the card of reward and riches, the material pleasures of the earth. But it could also suggest avarice, hoarding, failure to enjoy one’s money and the pleasures of generosity.

The reversed ace indicates a slow start to something. Aces-reversed have the sense of a false start, difficulty starting something. They also have a sense of failure, or incompletion. They may represent the negative essence of something. Aces-reversed can represent small physical items to do with their suit. They may also represent something old, perhaps worn out. A difficult start for a new business, a problematic start to a new job. Could mean losing, failing. Failure to get a job. Doing badly at an interview. Losing a sum of money.

Title: The Root of the Powers of Earth
Element: Earth
Zodiac Signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini
Thumbnail Meaning: The material world, including material gain and loss, the body, the visible external world, nature; sensation.

As the root of the material world, the Ace of Pentacles represents the form of the visible universe. In the tarot, aces represent the “Root of the Powers” of whatever classical element they embody.

This card can refer to the world as it is, or the world as we think it is––two very different things. The sensation function, which “tells us a thing is,” is also associated with this suit. As the root of earth, this Ace can also refer to nature, the non-human world, and the planet.

It’s very hard to talk about this card––supposedly the most “earthy” in the deck––without veering into generalizations. So here are some things the card can refer to:

Objectivity; seeing a situation objectively
The struggle to survive
Turning an idea into something tangible; getting a project “off the ground”
A major change in career, finances, status, etc. Positive or negative, depending on the spread.

The suit of Pentacles was originally the suit of Coins, so it’s strongly associated with money. This card, like all the aces, may show prosperity and wealth at its best: perhaps as something earned or something won.
