Pentacles, also known as “Coins” or “Disks”, are a magickal symbol or talisman that represents Earth. Earth rules over home and stability, the physical body, all aspects of farming and animal husbandry, career, prosperity, wealth and potential. This suit represents the support that is available to us — whether it be health, some kind of innate talent or skill, or a material or financial resource. It is the base on which all other things will be built.
The Ace of this suit is usually pictured with a garden or agricultural backdrop, and symbolizes a seed. This signifies that if we plant good ‘seeds’, they will sprout and reward us with a good harvest. Think of it as a seed of your future fulfillment. An Ace represents the first step to a goal, and if that step is repeated, it will cover great distances. ‘All journeys start with but a single step’ says one wise adage. Generally, the suit of Coins are referring to the tangible realities in daily life, but in the case of the Ace, it could be symbolizing a winning idea, game plan or blueprint for eventual materialization.
This card is a sign that we are on the right track, that our ideas and dreams have merit, and that they are definitely achievable! It tells us to take small, steady steps toward our long-term goals and we will accumulate magnificent results. Apply nature’s lesson of compound interest and develop your project gradually. A slow and steady buildup — visible or invisible — makes change and growth inevitable. Akin to the changing of the seasons, you do not notice this trend from day to day. However, as the year comes full circle, you cannot miss the changes. Work a little bit every day, achieving small goals now and then that you can celebrate along the way. This will help keep you excited and engaged. The secret to achieving success does not lie in inflating your dreams to grandiose levels; instead it comes about by choosing your direction wisely, and then humbly, and faithfully, putting one foot in front of the other.
Today, may you remember that each small act you perform is a sacred step along the path to manifestation. Blessed Be!
