Tarot Goddess

Title: Lord of Wealth
Element: Earth
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
Decan: Mercury in Virgo; September 12 – 22
Thumbnail Meaning: The acme of success, wealth, security, generation and regeneration.

This card represents the height of material achievement. Great wealth, leisure, security, fertility are all implied by its image. Above all this is a card of “inheritance,” whether of property, skill, worldview or tradition.

As a card of the earth, the Ten of Pentacles can also refer to a great harvest, leading to success and shared joy.

This card shows four people: an old man, a young man, a young woman and a child. The young man stands under an arch with heraldic inscriptions and holds a spear––a symbol of protection. He could be a guard, or the woman’s husband and the child’s father; either way, he has a responsibility to them, as do they to him.

The two greyhounds are classic symbols of loyalty and fidelity. In this card, they look up at the old man adoringly, while the child reaches out to pet one. Dogs are loyal and loving by nature; it is this loyalty and love that completes the tableau.

In the image at right, and in many other tarot decks, the ten pentacles are arranged in the same shape as the Kabbalistic tree of life. This perplexingly un-tree-like shape symbolizes the path to God.
