Pentacles are five-pointed stars, which look like coins and are connected to the element of earth. In the modern playing deck, they are the suit of diamonds. They represent values and priorities and reflect who or what we believe to be practical, important, or useful. It is no wonder they are associated with money. The pentacles in the tarot deck also speak of our relationship with whatever we consider our resources, what we can count on, so they will also address our “work” and highlight whatever values motivate our behavior..
If there are three or more pentacles in any one tarot reading, it means the focus of the reading is to give insight into what the seeker holds and values. It may indicate the next logical step based on that information or give the seeker some perspective as to where and how he or she fits into the situation at hand.
