Tarot Talk – King of Pentacles

Hello again from Tarot Talk – a weekly column in which I introduce a Tarot card for the week and provide a little information about it.  I hope you continue to enjoy this space.

This week’s card is the King of Pentacles.  The court cards in tarot (kings, queens, knights and pages) are usually considered to represent either people in our lives, aspects of our own personality or their specific attributes are ones we could usefully adopt at this time.

This card can represent the fulfilment of a creative task, business venture, or investment.  Here we see a king who has reached the pinnacle of his financial power and influence and is able to rest, assured of his continued prosperity. He is no longer required to struggle to achieve what he wants.  This card can also be the symbol for wealth and luck. The King of Pentacles could be called King Midas as he turns everything he touches to gold (riches of all kinds). He finds opportunity everywhere and succeeds at whatever he sets his mind to.


He is enterprising and adept. Whatever the task, he handles it competently, drawing on his wide range of skills and practical knowledge. He is always dependable and responsible.  He gives generously of his time and resources because he knows that by giving more, you receive more. He encourages others in their accomplishments and lends his support whenever it is needed. The King of Pentacles asks us to take the kinds of actions he might take e.g. keep a commitment, act responsibly, work hard etc.
